Steve Shaw BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2399* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 14 Oct 21


Actually, Dave, and I think I might have said this before, I'm not sure that the TACTICS of the protesters play well with most people. My response to that is, big deal. They are out there taking action (lazy my arse!). I remember being in an East London NUT meeting with my mate Blair Peach, a frighteningly huge number of years ago. Whatever the issue to hand was, I can't remember now. But we were waffling along, talking about raising the thing with this, that and the other, writing letters, bringing it up in school union meetings, etc. Blair had a terrible stammer, but, in his frustration at the indecision of the meeting, he stood up, totally out of order, stammer-free, and roared out, "But when are we actually going to stop talking to ourselves and TAKE SOME BLOODY ACTION!"

That always stayed with me...

If only pfr could have met such a man...
