About Lauren Booth:
|I’d like this space to reflect the kind of work I do as well as giving you an idea about who I am. I live by the mantra that all it takes for evil to thrive is that good men sit on the sofa whingeing about speed cameras. So I’ve linked to some great protest organisations and charities that need your support – why not take a look? Meanwhile, If you consider Iraqi civilians ‘collataral damage’ or that global warming is a faster way to get a tan, please feel free to google ‘Richard Littlejohn’. To everyone else, peace, and thanks for your visit.
