Sonia Poulton

Sonia Poulton is a Writer, Broadcaster and Social Commentator

From 1987 - 1997 Sonia was a music journalist contributing to titles including Q Magazine, Muzik, The Guardian Guide and The London Evening Standard.

 

Her assignments included a tour of the War Child Exhibition with David Bowie and touring America and Europe with multi-million selling bands. She was one of the last journalists to tour with rap artist, The Notorious B.I.G. before his murder in 1997.

 

From 1997 onwards, Sonia's creative horizons expanded and she now comments on a variety of human interest issues for national and international press.

 

She has investigated youth culture and knife crime (The Independent); Pushy Parents (Daily Mirror) Bad Manners (Daily Express); Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (Daily Mail); The Sexualisation of Young Girls (The Sun); Home Education (The Times) and A Multi-cultural Society (Daily Telegraph) among many others.

 

She has written extensively on the issue of David Cameron's Coalition - from benefit cuts to foodbanks - and how Government policies have detrimentally impacted vulnerable people including elderly, single parents and sick and disabled people. 

 

Sonia is infamous for her outspoken views on State and parental neglect, global inequalities and a culture where people are famous for being famous. She has lamented the sexualisation of young girls, the feminisation of young boys and the dangers of raising children in a 'fatherless society'.

 

She has penned a number of first-person articles including the affects of growing up without her father, the premature death of her mother and her harrowing experiences of working in a number of care homes. These included adults with learning difficulties and the elderly.

 

Sonia began broadcasting for TV and Radio in 1991.

 

She researched, scripted and presented the live weekly spot on popular culture. One highlight included a live report from America during the O.J. Simpson murder trial.

 

Her TV experience is varied. From interviewing artists backstage at an AIDS concert (C4) to reporting on the woes of the Child Support Agency (GMTV) through to revealing her personal experience of celibacy. She is regularly interviewed about her newspaper articles for the BBC and ITV.

 

She is a regular debater on ITV's This Morning covering controversial topics including 'should the age of consent be lowered?' and 'should abusive parents have contact with their children?' 

 

She also contributes to national and international news programs for ITN and Sky News on subjects including Child Sexual Assult (CSA), Establishment Corruption, Free Speech and Censorship.

 

Sonia has published three children's mini-books and has contributed to a number of others on subjects ranging from Victoria Beckham to the rise of 'Ghetto Culture'.

 

As a media consultant, she has tutored numerous pop bands including The Spice Girls and she was instrumental in creating their iconic nicknames.

 

She completed a Psychology degree ("because I wanted to understand myself more") and she takes great pride in her role as a single parent to her daughter.

 

Sonia is an amateur astrologer who enjoys taking her daughter to concerts, helping a local wildlife rescue centre and walking the family dog, Bliss the Westie.

 

She deplores procrastination, bad manners, bigotry and PC-behaviour. She is inspired by human kindness.
