OK I’m going to be rigorously honest with you about this campaign – no Damian McBride spin here.
I put up details of a picket of Westminster School on November 5th to kickstart the campaign. I have to inform you that as of noon today no assurances of support have been received. Not one. Someone did say trying to tie it in with the Anonymous action on Nov.5th was naff. I agree – will change date.
So should I give up. Of course. But the incorrigible optimist in me sees sprigs of hope….admittedly small sprigs. I have been invited by the BALLIOL LEFT CAUCUS to speak at Oxford university. At first I thought the BALLIOL LEFT CAUCUS must be a counter prank but no …….it exists. So comrades should I go and deliver an incendiary speech which will ignite the enemy within the belly of the beast? should I??
Secondly punk legend ANDY MARTIN has asked if I’d like to go and record a rant with his band UNIT. Andy is recording some new stuff about the abuse suffered by working class people with a great new track called WORKING CLASS MAN and others. So maybe I’ll record a public school rant and get UNIT to come and play it outside Westminster School.
er…well that’s it……..not much sprigs admittedly. Feel free to add yourself as a sprig. I’ll keep yas posted.
