Introducing Mickey Spiggot’s Budgie Heritage Series: Great British Council Flats

Great British Council Flats_Mickey Spiggot_Andrew Tong_web (2)Mickey Spiggot is the founder and CEO of Budgie Publishing, which he believes to be the best way to publish his own works. Writing has always been one of his favourite past times (right up there with borrowing money). Here Mickey Spiggot writes briefly about being an author and about his books on “Great British Council Flats”: “I am an accomplished author with over 300 books under my belt. Everything from local history to erotic crime thrillers and pet care. In fact, I am believed to be Croydon’s most published writer. Pictured is a copy of  my Great British Council Flats. An acclaimed 12 volume series giving the reader a subjective look at the masterpieces of British council flat architecture.These books are dear to my heart, I was raised in one of these flats in Croydon with mum before it burned down.This book not only looks at their amazing architecture but gives many affectionate if sometimes disturbing accounts of living in a council flat, including many photographs and interviews with their beloved residents. A unique part of our British heritage I must say…” This book has been out of print since 1982. But Mickey recently found a stack of them in a black bin bag underneath his mum’s old caravan in Leysdown on the Isle of Sheppey. A bit worse for wear but an integral part of our heritage.
