He’s done so well with us but there’s no way he’s going to survive back in mainstream. He’ll end up being another casualty of an inflexible system that ultimately doesn’t cater for the likes of him. Square pegs just don’t fit into round holes. He’s not the only one. There will always be others. If I allowed myself to dwell on the issue too much I’d probably end up feeling immobilised, cynical and disempowered, but that would serve no useful purpose. We do what we can. Sometimes we can make a difference. Sometimes we’re little more than a band aid.
