Socialist always. Journalist and ESL teacher while travelling the world in better days. Times change, my values have not. I am grateful to Critical Mass for giving me the opportunity to write for ‘the masses’ once more. We all write for nothing but I still need to earn a living and as I am experiencing unduly harsh times I would appreciate any donation, however small, from anyone that can afford it.

Life long socialist. Now retired, I have been an office junior, a bookseller, a docker and a teacher. I write a lot and read a lot more. Committed member of the Society of Authors, English PEN and the National Education Union. Uncommitted member of the Labour Party. Will they expel me before my direct debit expires?

Hi. I am Dave Elliott. I have been deeply interested and invested in politics as far back as I can remember and have been a Socialist since I was approximately seven years old. What a weird and creepy kid, right? Despite being told that I would 'grow up and out of' my left leanings, I have moved further left over time. It has been this journey that led me to understand that my efforts within electoral and party politics were making little if any difference to the material lives of my community and society. It was this realisation that gave me the kick I needed to make more direct contributions at the grassroots. The creation of the YouTube channel, Party Political Puffin and the associated website have been a way to communicate with Comrades on the left and challenge those on the right. Whilst writing on a number of other platforms has been cathartic, being part of Critical Mass has opened the door to a place where I meet those that are so committed to each other and the wider movement that it can only inspire me and us all. It is my pleasure, and with pride that I am part of the Critical Mass writing team. Whilst video production and writing articles are my passion, I still have to pay the bills. If you get value from any of my work please consider a Party Political Puffin membership on Patreon. Alternatively, if a one-off contribution suits you better, please take a look at my PayPal. Thank you for your support. Solidarity, Comrade. Dave

Pondering life and all it's wonders, sixty seconds at a time. Generally trying to be positive and amusing, but usually ending up ranty and cross. Has been known to put things to music, or to produce works that are considerably longer than sixty seconds, so be warned. https://sixtysecondscribe.com for books and things.

Born and living in North Wales, my views have always been socialist. Life is a struggle. There is always something. I've worked in a lot of places, and my experience has taught me that if you want a fair society, you have to fight for it, constantly. Complacency is a killer, particularly as a society enters its final stages - as I suspect the case may be for us. My backgrounds are in languages, nerd culture, hypnosis, the occult, and LGBTQIA+ communities. I also look out for topics of interest to people with mental disabilities, particularly autism and DID. Where I express an opinion, it is entirely my own, and not that of the magazine or its editorial staff.
