Journalism mattters

I came back into full-time frontline journalism a year ago to do three things: 
  1. Write the truth about bad people who were getting away with it; 
  1. Do interviews in front of audiences with inspiring people (like I did at JMW yesterday); 
  1. Carry on some of my academic work examining the efforts of people who are determined to make this region better than they found it.
This story about Lawrence Jones was one I have wanted to write for ten years, or more. The legal process can be slow. But justice has been served on this man. Let us never forget the brave women who risked so much to bring him down. And for those who enabled him, there will be a reckoning.

Warning. This is a long read. Thanks to for supporting me and giving me the time to write it, and a huge thanks to all those who helped with details.
