Every or every other Saturday, so public can look forward to your presence. Also stresses permanence of your protests. Any time of the day. For an
hour or two (more if you want).
Remember you are there to attract the public’s attention, not to repel it.
Consult with local police before you go ahead.
Take mobile phones with you.
Best to start with stationary protests – easier to engage public and an opportunity to chat,
provide entertainment such as satirical sketches,music. You can still have slogans on placards.

I need to get a fair amount off my chest.
Remainers tell me: If only we had a leader.
But could ANY 'leader' lead you?
Some want A, others demand B, yet others C and so on down multiple alphabets.

This well suits the Tories.
We need to be logical

@EnfieldforEU My aim is twofold
1. wake up the public to the abuse of them by 'govt'
2. disturb/ultimately remove the 'govt'
The more successful we are with the former, the greater our success will be with the latter.
Most of the population dont really care whether we are in
2/3
or out of the EU. They do care tho about tax rises, Covid deaths, food/fuel shortages and price rises, NHS provision.
Atm any detailed explanations as to the benefits of being in the EU will leave most bored to death.
We need to touch emotions, not brain power.
We cannot

@AsBrexit @RealBristolBoy 1/3 maybe 4
That is up to each local group. All I am doing is trying to link folk up with each other locally.
However, my advice is:
1.give folk space to autonomously switch sides leave/remain and avoid these labels
2. Always use the words 'we/us/our'; NOT the
@AsBrexit @RealBristolBoy 2/3 maybe 4
words 'you/your(s)'. We seek to unite, not divide.
3. Use simple, short, hard-hitting slogans on matters the general public care about
4. If you use music to attract, make it catchy
5. Defend yourselves natch, but do not be aggressive.
We are the sane and
@AsBrexit @RealBristolBoy 3/3 maybe 4
calm, reasonable ones (?lol) not the hysterical
6. Avoid groups of over 30; you could split larger numbers into 2 separate groups in diff parts of the locality. Folk get upset/anxious about huge protests and avoid.
7. Do not block roads, or not for long if

You ask What is wrong with folks?
I would suggest:
for decades there has been a capitalistic move to atomise us/to divide us into single units, loyal to 'the firm' rather than to family, friends, each other, with whom they nudge us into competition, rather than
2/3
collaboration. (My toys/underwear/house/TV set is better/bigger/more expensive/trendier, than yours; ergo I am a far better/more successful person than you.)
As lone individuals we are easier pickings for their profits.
This is why we find it hard to collaborate, to
3/3
listen to each other, to give some way to each other, to group in solidarity with common purpose. We have become centred on our lonely SELVES.

I do wish some TV interviewer would ask the following questions re social care for the elderly:

You have now capped the amount a person should spend before further costs become free.
Can we assume a bed is included in their capped expenditure?
2/3 And will the bed be in a room, also included in the capped expenditure?
If not, how will you provide nursing care without either bed or room for the bed?
Also, can they bring sleeping bag and a tent and erect it on the lawn free of charge?
3/3
Can we also assume food will be provided, and included in the capped expenditure?
If not can family send in sandwiches?

In the meantime, you might like to sign this petition:

SILENT DEMOS
1/11 Possible large swathes of the population have no idea/interest in what this govt is up to? Could groups of us (say 10) protest regularly with banners/placards stating Referendum lies/consequences of Brexit? These protests could be stationary,& even maybe silent.
2/11 20 = 2 groups/2 protests @ different times but REGULARLY + different placards? URGENT NEED TO GET INFO into the public consciousness, and maybe garner support for more similar protests? If XR can do it, so can we, but without the glue. Aim is to inform/encourage resistance.
3/11 The more groups of 10 stand silent with SIMPLE punchline worded placards re brexit consequences, the lies, demands to rejoin the SM and CU. the more others will take courage/the truth from your actions. It COULD spread??

Cummings is obsessed by his own 'clever' 'original'perceptions, possibly over-encouraged/indulged as a youngster by doting parents.
BUT he lacks stamina in dealing with objections, or thinking his ideas through. Reading his meagre writings, he wanders all over the place,

leaping from one train of thought to another, and leaving hanging the original thought. None of the ideas are followed through by any clear thinking or consideration of possible faults in the ideas. Obsessive. Any challenge is swiped to one side. The 'thin'

(Mirror today 30th):
The Batley & Spen by-election has become so unpleasant that Labour’s Kim Leadbeater now requires a police escort.

No candidate should find themselves in this position, least of all the sister of murdered MP Jo Cox.

This should be a moment of nation
soul-searching.

It should also be a moment of national condemnation from all the main party leaders, a condemnation which, with the exception of Keir Starmer, has been depressingly absent.

We know the primary reason why the by-election has become so acrimonious –
the intervention of George Galloway whose modus operandi could be described as the opposite of Jo Cox's notion we have more in Common than that which divides us.

Galloway's strategy depends in a large part on exploiting rather than healing divisions.

The fact that

5/until she fell to the ground, of a reporter screaming at the police, as they attacked him, that he was a bystander and merely reporting.
This is not acceptable.
This was not necessary.
You need to train your police to have more discrimination as to whom they attack, to develop
6/better negotiating and crowd control skills, to act more wisely and productively rather than panic and lash out.
Had I been one of the seated protestors, or the young woman with the guitar, or the reporter, or anyone about to be trampled underfoot by your cavalry, I would sue

Your actions were harmful and will only increase distrust.
We need a trustworthy, and a WISELY competent police force.

I have always supported and respected the police force. This morning, however, I saw with horror the events of last night in Bristol.
The heavy-handed police behaviour was appalling, and can only

Initially, the situation was calm and peaceful. When certain hotheads and RentaMob thugs attempted to disrupt, your police attacked quite

It is also disturbing to note that even initially when all was calm you
