The world keeps stealing my storylines. First it was the ships of Saddam’s weapons (what ever happened to them? The Americans wouldn’t just make things up or pretend that rumour was fact would they?) Now it’s the spread of SARS and reactions to it. Hong Kong authorities have quarantined a whole tower block in an attempt to control the spread. Obviously my story was going to take place in Manchester, occuring on the DEx’s watch. The story was going to revolve around a hostel for immigrants, allowing for political commentary and a chance to mock the xenophobic anti- asylum seeker types.
