By Meirion Jordan
Scurrilous wit, intellectual outrage, and linguistic light-footedness are all on show in De Excidio et Conquestu Britanniae - a poetic broadside issued from the depths of Britain’s history, Meirion Jordan’s latest poetry pamphlet spews back the frothing intolerance of modern political life in all its lurid colours.
