Abstract

Journalists tell stories so it’s not surprising we think in terms of ‘narratives’ with even the most complex issues. For me narrative has become an almost redundant cliche over used by politicians and marketeers. But it’s still useful to describe how stories – incidents, issues, organisations, individuals etc – can be woven into a developing thread. And then sometimes that narrative changes.
