'Words on the Street' is the e-book I co-authored with Simon Chater, chronicling nearly three years of campaigning to remain in the EU after the Referendum. Devon for Europe did regular Devon wide street stalls where we talked to people to try and debunk the lies which had fuelled the Referendum. It was tough. Simon wrote reports on the stalls, and I wrote a series of haikus trying to encapsulate events and feelings. My very first one was:

Seventy years' peace,
Why should I care about that?
I want blue passports.

This book also includes some newspaper headlines to show what was happening politically at different times. At the moment it is free to download so please do, enjoy, and share as widely as you like - https://www.devonforeurope.com/words_on_the_street/
