Show them your shoes!




A bit asthmatic and looking after my kids today, so I have been blogging and letter writing for Jerry Hicks rather than getting on the streets to challenge the BBC, glad others have been doing so.

Some great photos and a report here.

"The march began with a rally close to the BBC’s Broadcasting House near Great Portland Street. This was in response to the BBC’s decision not to show the Disasters Emergency Committee charity appeal for the Palestinian victims of the conflict, which was criticised by Cabinet ministers. The speeches by the likes of Tony Benn and other Stop the War grandees were characteristic, although a bizarre touch came with a Green Party speaker singing a chunk of Manic Street Preachers hit If you tolerate this after his speech."

So that wasn't you then?

I think you'll find the Manics a bit short of tolerance for trendy middle class 'greens' and gutless wonders.

A song so appropriate for many reasons.

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

Gravity keeps my head down,
or is it maybe shame?,
for being so young
and being so vain
