On the Irish abortion referendum, not only has the 8th amendment put women in danger, but such archaic legislation has no place in a modern liberal democracy. Women’s reproductive rights must not be governed by the state (or religion.) #mybodymyrights #repealthe8th @cnn
Delighted to be featured in the latest issue of Monocle Magazine discussing my ‘front line’ views on #Brexit and how we ended up where we are. #monocle #monoclemagazine
Poets for hire, jazz & blues on every corner, and a whole lot of soul. The Big Easy is every bit as special as one might imagine. #NOLA #NewOrleans
Thank you Texas, it was a dream.
Lone star state
Dawn hike to Cathedral Rock. Steep climb up to be treated to magical views over Sedona. ⛰
Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road. #kerouac
And the view’s so nice.
A little town in West Texas. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸
Politics downtime in an oasis in Arizona 🏜
Radical sustainable living by @earthship in the New Mexico desert with these incredible, off-grid homes built using natural materials and trash (tires, bottles, cans). Powered by wind, sun and human genius. 🙌
Dream in adobe.
We’re so happy to be in the beautiful Southwest US 🇺🇸 —and to spend some time in the incredible national parks of Arizona, New Mexico & Texas.
The Irish Border: the impossible Brexit circle to square. 🦄
Magical, wistful @amendunes capturing a zeitgeist of nostalgia.
And here a reminder that Trump is playing nuclear poker with Iran. @cnn
- Good: Welcome change in tone: a process of Gov't being mugged by reality; - Bad: Still too cherry picky, suspect UK will be offered Canada-style FTA; - Ugly: Still no solution to Irish border issue. pic.twitter.com/sJob4vfc4v

On @BBCNewsnight tonight - I’ll discuss EU reaction to @theresa_may’s speech - and why we will still most likely end up with a Canada style FTA. Maybe German car manufacturers will be mentioned too. #RoadtoBrexit
Let’s be clear - the FTA won’t be done by March 2019 (who really believes this?) - so then we are talking transition until 2021 (?) Transition means UK remains a rule taker, with no say. pic.twitter.com/60v9AzjQHl
Once interviewed East Berliner who listened to iconic David Bowie concert just across the Wall in 1987. Urban legend says speakers were pointed backwards so they could hear in DDR. All were overwhelmed when Bowie played 'Heroes.' https://t.co/4cGEz6gC6l
