. (DeLillo, 2010: 101) Those urges to capture everything, to mark nodes, ways and relations, to monopolise movement cartographically, to laud diagrammatically over Witham as Captain James Cook did so in Botany Bay, Australia (Carter, 1987); where do these urges come from? In part, they stem from the discursive and cultural baggage that has become welded to cartography; the discipline’s associations with colonialism, monopoly and meta-narrative. Importantly, the focus of this chapter on the experiential is not meant as a disavowal of other well-known linguistic and

OECD’s Jobs Strategy typifies the policy recommendations that accompany claims to a flexibilised and competitive labour force (see Table 1.1). Intensified global competition, according to those advocating neo-liberal flexibilisation, means that all state-societies must restructure along the lines of this model. Indeed, in a report that compares the relative success of member countries in implementing the Jobs Strategy recommendations, the OECD identifies the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland as having made ‘significant policy developments’ in the
