1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Steve Bray's 'protest' equipment seized on first day of new law

    I suspect it is actually more effective using threads such as this one to keep things fresh. I do it very regularly. Stickied threads tend to become part of the furniture and ignored IME, e.g. the number of PMs I get from folk not understanding how the pfm classified area works despite stickied threads, the room strap-line etc etc beggars belief!

    Most if not all of these entities tend to have a subscription option, e.g. I pay an amount each month to GLP just the same way I’ve sponsored a sea turtle via WWF. I think they all do it starting at a fiver a month or even less. With LBD I tend to bung them a £20 or whatever whenever they’ve made a particularly good point, so I kind of let their work remind me. I follow them all on Twitter so I’m always up to date with what they are doing and I’ll keep promoting them here whenever the opportunity arises, as it did so clearly with this thread. Hopefully we’ll make them a few extra £100 between us and that certainly all helps.

    Was about to post exactly the same thing - he's stood next to four lanes of Central London traffic!

    I ride through there once or twice a week and honestly I've never noticed him.

    Cold War Steve precisely on point as ever (Twitter).

    PS To top it all the Met is now in ‘special measures’ (Guardian).

    Perhaps it’s Cressida Dick doing a little stirring on her way to the exit?

    He has to annoy. Without being an ass he wouldn't be news worthy. But if he turns up outside my gate and starts putting a tent up, Im kicking his ass a half mile down the road

    The use of 'amplified equipment', got me thinking, surely it's possible to fashion/modular assemble a non amplified 'large' horn made from cardboard boxes....?

    Another great example of how fascism happens. I support draconian, authoritarian legislation because I find someone is slightly annoying me and not even directly.

    Normally I would agree... but... Bray is very annoying. Oh, and he's still protesting but no amps so he's allowed to do it.

    I cycle round Parliament Square on a regular basis. Not seen Bray for sometime. He was always outside the House of Lords pre Covid. Perhaps he's based on Whitehall now ( location of twitter clips ) There are always people protesting and making a noise outside the HoC. Some do it better than others. None of them deserved to be moved on for trying to get a point across.

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr neither here nor there

    And if he does a quiet protest that doesn’t trouble people, he, and his protest are easy to ignore. And therefore pointless. Is that how it should be in your book?

    Anyone who protests about the stupidity of BREXIT gets my support and if they annoy Tory MPs at the same time, it can only be a good thing.
