Brexit

Political

On saturday there was the People’s Vote March to demand that the people get the final say on Brexit. These excited kids were at my local overground station. They were so full of hope that their facepaint and home made banners and t-shirts would make a difference.

On the train was this cute little toddler, he seemed to love his little banner.

The whole of London was packed with people with home made banners and EU flags. It took us two hours to get from Bond Street Tube to the start of the march on Park Lane and a further three hours to get to Trafalgar Square – I didn’t make it to Parliment because I had to leave by 5pm to get to a gig. Along the way there was so many colourful characters of all ages, but this lady’s banner ‘Old person against Brexit’ stayed in my head.

Gina Martin

Political

Gina Martin is an inspiration and hero.  

In summer 2017 Gina was at a music festival when she became aware that a man standing nearby had taken a photo up her skirt of her crotch and was sharing the picture with his friends in the crowd. She grabbed his phone, despite him being quite a bit bigger than her, and ran to the police with it. She was horrified that the police told her that they could not do anything. 

But, Gina didn’t give up, she started an online petition and began campaigning to make up-skirting a criminal offence. 

A few days ago a law was passed so that now ‘up skirting’ is a sexual offence in England and Wales. We have Gina Martin to thank for bringing about this well overdue law.
