Hey, I’m Edward. I like to rant about mental health, politics and society. I started this blog a few years ago to improve my writing, and for something to do other than binge-watching Netflix series.

The blog got me more involved with the Labour movement and the wider world of ideology and society. I joined the international arm of the British Labour Party and now I go to regular meetings here in Madrid (I needed something to write about and friends!). It even inspired my first book ‘Why Socialism is Sexy Now’.

Originally from Swindon in the South West of England, I previously worked as a mental health nurse, and now I’m working as a teacher in Madrid. I come and go between the two often. It’s fair to say that I have a lot to say about the state of the world. I hope you enjoy some of my posts. Let me know what you think and don’t forget to follow me on social media (links below).

In this day and age where simplicity is underrated; I try to remain grounded in all my writing and in life (that doesn’t always pan out).

Look out for more of my books. I’m writing a book on Spain at the moment. This one will hopefully be out by the summer of 2020. I am also researching a book about Swindon.

I’ve also written articles for some other websites such as The Huffington Post, Labour Briefing, and Labour Heartlands.
