Thank you if you signed my UKIP petition asking that UKIP drops its diktat to ban writing that “promotes multiculturalism”, and that writers should “promote one British culture”.
I closed the petition with 44 signatures still needed, and I’d collected 55, which isn’t at all bad.
I started the petition after my experiences on Authonomy, Harper Collins’s (or should I say Rupert Murdoch’s) website for aspiring writers.
I should have known better, but when an anonymous sock puppet asked me to take down my novel, in no uncertain terms, because it contained a West Indian and a Chinese character, I realised there was a problem.
This led me to discover UKIP’s diktat, and then I set up a failed petition.
I’m writing about the second world war at the moment.
My website and blog are now only visible by invitation.
Thank you for continuing to follow this blog.
