The Robin Hood Book

Verse Versus Austerity

131 Poets in Support of a Robin Hood Tax

Highest Runner Up in the Morning Star Award for Protest in Poetry 2013

Provoking, entertaining, moving and heartening, it is an extraordinarily rich selection of funny, angry, polemical, satirical, sad and wise poetry ...a huge and hugely important book... Andy Croft, Morning Star [read the full review here]

Here is a handbook for everyone who wants to make the case against the Coalition. I can’t recommend it highly enough...
