It was lovely to receive this unexpected endorsement from Baroness Sally Hamwee who is spokesperson on Home Affairs in the Lords:
‘Thank you for your poems. A friend gave me your Immigration Handbook, and the other night I read Dr Gopal at a local group. They laughed at the image of the aubergine turned old overnight, which gave the ending even more impact. The whole body of work is a wonderful reminder that each person caught up in the system is an individual, not just one of a group to be lumped together (though I guess each of the subjects stands proxy for many others).
