About

I’m an ex-British Army, Royal Signals Sgt Major with just over 25 years served (1985-2011) with tours of Iraq and Bosnia. I’m also a survivor of domestic abuse.

Gaslighting Gilligan’ (©2017) is a personal, political and philosophical journey through the interconnected ‘State’ of the psychological warfare and physical violence which can take place ‘behind closed doors’; waged by an abusive partner and by broadcast within the ‘flatscreen universe: cinematic, TV and tablet’ to shape our individual perceptions and our collective ‘reality‘.

As such ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ is a paradigm shift in the meaning of domestic abuse and the Atlantic Bridge to ‘1984’.

On the 25th June 2017 – the same day I released the book – I did this;

Video recorded on 25th June 2018, on the first anniversary of going to Berlin and warning the German Bundes Polizei & Irish Embassy on 250617, of the inevitable #ToryAnalytica coup d’etat militarisation of Brexit and the arrival of a US/UK-led global fascism; “Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad”. Orwell, ‘1984’.

As a result I was arrested, detained and sent to the Psychiatric Ward of the Charité Hospital in Berlin. After three sets of psychiatric assessments (two in Berlin and one on return to Scotland) I was found not to be ‘mad’. I simply perceived events differently and experienced first hand how defensive, scared, dismissive and irrational even professionals can become in order to protect their own conditioned-biases and belief systems.

I’m not an academic or historian and certainly not a politician. I’m an ex-Squaddie and State school indoctrinated council house kid. They key difference between me and most people is that I trusted my intuition to know something was very wrong and simply backed myself to write a dystopian ‘fiction‘ through prism of symbolism (all you need to know is in there) and to take the necessary action I did to warn Berlin.

The book is (© 2017) protected but it isn’t yet professionally edited etc as it is in essence a ‘Warning Order’. So please feel free to download and share your PDF copy of ‘Gaslighting Gilligan‘. Donations are very much appreciated (no obligation). Many thanks. (I’m unable to thank people via PayPal, so please accept my appreciation and ‘thank you’ in advance).
