Thomas Midlane Freelance journalist and blogger

Tom Midlane is a freelance journalist who writes for the Guardian's Northerner blog and the Press Association. He can also be found ranting verbosely about everything from fast food jobs to banking reform on his own blog, The Golden Latrine.

When not working, he can be found with his nose in a dusty book or stood on the terraces at Blue Square North tiddlers Stalybridge Celtic.
