@Klmfitness244 @LawlessYo @edwardsiddons This is an ongoing hypocrisy in the new wave of self righteous woke street kids. Kick off about every wrongly used pronoun but totally ignore these issues in grime. Don’t get me wrong I love grime, it’s just hilarious how mainstream are wishing the issues away.

What was your first job as a journalist?

Just started out freelancing to be honest; trying my luck by pitching stories I'd looked into.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Never for any other purpose than the novelty of using a typewriter in the 21st century.

How is social media changing news?

It's great in terms of getting on-the-ground breaking news much quicker, downside is though that a lot of unreliable sources filter through.
