Video of Ken Loach reading from one of my poems

Video of Ken Loach - director of Kes, The Wind That Shakes The Barley, & I, Daniel Blake - reading from one of my poems at a meeting at Conway Hall in London on Monday, January 29th.
 

The full poem can be read here 'What Did The Politician Get His Wife?' 

The poem is a rewrite of Brecht's 'The Soldier's Wife' which is sung by PJ Harvey here.
From now on, I plan to dress the way P.J. Harvey does in this video while reading this particular poem. 

For the background on the political controversy regarding this and some other poems see here.
