Journalism: whom I write for and what I write

I write regular features for Chartist (‘Points and Crossings’) and occasional stuff for Big Issue in the North as well as more occasional features for The Yorkshire Post, Red Pepper etc.

I tend to cover railways and transport (predictably); democratic devolution; local and regional issues; working class and social history; other odds and sods.

My ‘Northern Weekly Salvo’ is getting a large following. If you want to be on the mailing list let me know. You can download it from this website. (or email me at
