John Robinson

John Robinson was born in 1973 in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, a regrettable incident which possibly triggered the UK's entry into the European Union.He attended University in Canterbury, studying Radio, Film and Television with Mathematics, because he is insane, and then completed a vocational certificate.

in Journalism in Sheffield College. The country then spat him out to spend three years teaching English in Poland, till 2000, possibly triggering their membership of the European Union. Having worked as a website designer and Search Engine Optimiser at a time when that was almost seen as a real job, he moved into education, teaching Computing and Media at college back in Scunthorpe. He has now completed ten years as a Lecturer in Further Education, and now faces Brexit and the imminent collapse of Western Civilisation. His principal interests are indie music, comedy, avant-garde cinema and speculative fiction, as well as locked-room murder mysteries, for when he gets access to the Oval Office or Number 10. Also concerned with rights and treatment for the disabled, having as he does a daughter with Down Syndrome.
