Martin Dorey is a writer, surfer, photographer, presenter, cook and campaigner for the #2MinuteBeachClean. He writes about camping, fun, outdoor food, living the outdoor life and having adventures in his VW camper van and contributes regularly to CampsitedCoast Magazine, Camping Magazine and Motorhome and Motorcaravan Monthly Magazine. Martin’s first book, The Camper Van Cookbook, inspired the BBC TV series One Man and His Camper Van in which Martin cooked and camped his way around the UK. It has now aired all over the world. The follow-up book, The Camper Van Coast, celebrates Martin’s love for coastal living, playing, cooking and eating.

Martin’s third book, The Camper Van Bible, was published in June 2016, and has been described as THE definitive glove-box bible for anyone who owns or ‘would die for’ a camper van.

A writing career came late for Martin after a 12-year stint in the advertising and film industry as an Assistant Director on some of the more famous 90s TV commercials – Guinness, Levis, Gold Blend, Oxo — as well as promos for The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox (among others), a documentary about legendary British cameraman Jack Cardiff and various TV series and film projects.

The #2minutebeachclean campaign has been taking Martin in all kinds of directions of late. From being an idea to inspire others to help clean beaches it has grown into a global campaign with many thousands of followers and posts to Instagram from every continent, including Antarctica. The idea has been used in Ireland and the UK as well as in Israel and Puerto Rico. Martin has spoken about the campaign at the Blue Flag Operators’ Conference in Holland, was invited to speak at TEDx Kiel University and on BBC’s Springwatch.

Self before country? Pretty much sums up Boris Johnson in a nutshell. Bravo.

@jetfury @NadineDorries @BorisJohnson “Paint me like you paint your model buses.”

Just so we're clear: Sunak, Javid and all the other Tory MPs abandoning Boris Johnson aren't acting from "principle" or "honour".

They've known what he's like from the beginning.

They're abandoning him because they now think his leadership threatens their interests. That's it.

Nadhim Zahawi is the new Tory Chancellor.

Nadhim Zahawi once had to repay expenses he'd claimed for electricity bills at his private stables.

They all need to go. We need a general election.

This is all a joke. These people are made up characters. They don't exist in reality. They are just cartoon politicians. It cannot be so.

Why else would we end up with such a shitshow of politics?

Free broadband and pay for student nurses anyone?

All the people who knew what Boris Johnson was all along, who made Boris Johnson Prime Minister, who kept Boris Johnson in power, are now trying to pretend they’ve just realised who Boris Johnson is.

Don’t let them get away with it!

What the Republicans, Tories, The Daily Mail, The Telegraph, Fox News, Murdoch, Putin, oil nations, the establishment, the banks, the super rich, the elite, do not want you to understand: #JustStopOil #ClimateEmergency

Rees-Mogg is on @Channel4News talking about Harold Macmillan and Lord Salisbury as if he’s just woken up stoned off his tits on snuff in the middle of a grouse moor, having lost his way to the funeral of a Victorian work house owner.

They didn’t resign over Covid deaths.
They didn’t resign over benefit cuts.
They didn’t resign over Partygate.
They didn’t resign over PPE.
They didn’t resign over Brexit failure.
They didn’t resign over deporting refugees.

Spare us the praise for the ‘good’ Tories.
