As always at a major event, we must remember the fallen.

So farewell then, Perry Barr Flyover,
You kept us going down the Walsall Road,
Or provided a car park,
to view the roof of One Stop,
Dead to the Commonwealth Games,
Which is like the Olympics,
But smaller,
Faster, higher, stronger
Is the Olympic motto
& you were the second two.

Jon was voted the ‘14th Most Influential Person in the West Midlands’ in 2008. Subsequently he has not been placed. He’s been a football referee, venetian blind maker, cellar man, and a losing Labour council candidate: “No, no chance. A complete no-hoper” said a spoilt ballot. Jon wrote and directed the first ever piece of drama performed on Twitter when he persuaded a cast including MPs and journalists to give over their timelines to perform Twitpanto. But all that is behind him.
