100 Acts of Minor Dissent

Mark Thomas

Published by September in Hardback (£9.99) on 18-06-2015

The Rules

1. 100 acts of minor dissent to be committed in one year.

2. Should Mark fail to commit 100 acts, a forfeit shall be levied. That forfeit shall be a donation of £1,000 to UKIP.

Are you fed up with your every google search, journey, online interaction and other private details monitored and stored by establishment and big business?

Do ever feel the urge to wipe the smile off estate agents and money-lender’s faces?

Do you find the inexorable growth of porn, the Daily Mail and UKIP problematic?

Yes?

Then Mark is your man.

Mark Thomas’ fifth book began with a personal challenge that ended up having national repercussions – to perform 100 acts of dissent. Failure to complete the challenge would result in Mark having to donate a grand to UKIP. Nothing like a little incentive…

It began on a small scale but soon became something much bigger. The targets were multiple; from corporate greed and public service inanities to infringements of rights. He and his team protested, petitioned, stickered and plain pestered to effect change – watched by bemused policemen and entertained crowds – from Apple stores to Tesco’s aisles, estate agent’s doorsteps and UKIP campaigns. This is his account of the adventure – it will make you laugh, it will make you angry, and it may even inspire you to dissent yourself.

Language evolves with time, and so does what we consider profane or unspeakable. Nine Nasty Words is a rollicking examination of profanity, explored from every angle: historical, sociological, political, linguistic. In a particularly coarse moment, when the public discourse is shaped in part by once-shocking words, nothing could be timelier.
