    As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

    What do you think?


    I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90% is now in the coffers of the Dick Cheney's Halliburton et al. Whether clever or stupid, that will no doubt continue to be the subject of much discussion, but it is the Iraqi people I feel for, all those millions of innocent men, women and children. Collateral.

  • RESPECT at Pave Festival
    by Isobel Blackthorn



    When musical duo Savannah Rose invited me to speak at their RESPECT show I was honoured and baffled all at once. What would I talk about? With their smooth and dulcet harmonies, Suzanne Diprose and Bree Cleal sing dark and old-school country. Their awareness-raising show depicts how women are portrayed in song lyrics. They are joined by Moonshine Coalition, Heidi & Jules, and The Borrowed Boys. I needed to fit into all that and I dont have a country bone in my body. ...

  • Isobel Blackthorn speaking at Belgrave library – feat. Savannah Rose

  • Lovesick re-released!
    by Isobel Blackthorn
    My memoir, Lovesick, came out in 2011 to popular acclaim. I decided to re-release the book and give it a new lease of life after a friend and high school teacher told me he thought it should be much more widely read.
