Busy couple of days

Petition now over 350, attended dinner with Ed Milliband at the Penta Hotel (great speech!) and protest march today against the NHS reorganisation, tax dodging gazillionaires and the cuts to the council’s income.

It was good to march with other trade unionists (there were far more from Unison there than my own trade union, the GMB, but I’m sure that will change), Labour activists and others who share our concerns.

It will be a long slow road though to even put the brakes on this government’s plans: much less reverse the damage they are doing.

John Ennis addressed the gathering strongly about how Reading had a far worse deal than our leafier, Tory heartland neighbours, and yet our Conservative-led coalition have just meekly accepted it and haven’t put Reading’s case forward.
