  • Mood:

We went on a protest

I really have to stop obsessing about Brexit. I'm wasting too much time reading political anti-Brexit pages and posts on Facebook and reading discussions on Twitter. Brexit is like watching a slow motion train crash, one which is likely to seriously damage the country's future, so it's hard to look away. I do have a feeling that things are coming to a head. There's probably nothing one insignificant player like myself can do now, we'll just have to wait and see how things play out, but we did go to the march and protest outside the Labour Party conference in Liverpool.

There were three big demos planned for the autumn, Labour and Tory Party conferences in Liverpool and Birmingham respectively, and the really big march planned for 20th October in London. We've already done one big London demo this year and because we live in the back of beyond, it costs in hotel bills and train fares to attend. In the end, we decided that two extra bodies in Liverpool was our best contribution, especially as the Labour Party could be the way of stopping the insanity.

So we went and stayed the night in Chester on the Saturday. We had a nice walk around the city walls before eating dinner in the hotel. Next morning, we caught the train to Liverpool and joined in the protest. Some pictures...
