Using my voice...

With a Government seemingly intent on "flooding the zone with shit,"
There's never been more to talk about.
Here's how I try...

Commentary

As seen on Twitter.
With over 3
10,000 followers including high-profile supporters from the worlds of sport, business, music, TV and politics.

Taking the Govt to task and talking all things current affairs...

Campaigning

It's one thing having a platform.
It's quite another to use it as a force for good...

Political Podcasting: The Trawl

Political commentator Marina Purkiss and broadcaster Jemma Forte delve into the week in tweets.


The Trawl doomscrolls Twitter so you don’t have to. Each week our hosts discuss who in politics has digitally soiled themselves and who has been excellent in no more than 280 characters.

You can now subscribe on Apple PodcastsSpotify, and wherever you get your podcasts.

Writing

My own column.
That's the dream.
This is the start point...

A little about me...

Before 2016, I was your average, politically-apathetic, 30-something-year-old. 

But then came the EU referendum result.

A result that came as shock.

A shock that prompted a journey...

I fell down the rabbit hole that is the state of UK politics and am falling still.


I shared my observations, my frustrations, my amusing musings (if you will) with the Twitterverse. And for some reason, they listened. 

Today, I find myself with over 310,000 Twitter followers. I feature on Channel 5's Jeremy Vine Show, Good Morning Britain, BBC Radio, Piers Morgan's Uncensored and have also written for Fortune Magazine. 

I also have my own politically charged (but fun) podcast: The Trawl and am the new host of Byline TV's debate show: The Table. 

When not opining the state of UK politics, you'll find me leading marketing campaigns for a US tech firm, indulging in gloriously exhausting family and friends time, and drinking wine.


...though not all at the same time.
