I did consider tootling along to the Jarrow fuel protest with my camera. And then I thought, "fuck 'em". Open the lid on the fuel protestors and you can smell some very low life forms; AND they're protesting against the bloody government, with the police in the middle. So "fuck the lot of 'em".
The local and national news showed only fourteen 'protestors' had turned up. Daft twats. You could get more people to protest against the imposition of tax on, say, graph paper.
Which reminds me, rather obscurely, of this story about the Duchess of Northumberland growing dope and magic mushrooms. And papaver somniferum, which grows as a rather la di da weed throughout Jarrow.
