Who should be the next Laureate?

Who should be the next Laureate? It is a shame Tony Harrison counted himself out years ago. He’d have been my choice. The Corbyn of Poetry in my opinion.

Any other nominations?

Cheers,

Tristan

Yes, he’s a good poet. I heard him read last year. Very funny.

Cheers,
