We're All In It Together....

.... well these brave souls are anyway.  I popped out at lunchtime to find a group of disabled people and pensioners protesting against the cuts; a very effective, if short lived, protest.  As a bus stopped at the lights they group moved into action by standing in front of the bus.  While two in wheelchairs handcuffed themselves to the back of the bus, another fixed himself to the bus door entrance.


The placard above left reads "Stop the cuts - the disabled didn't cause the recession".



A large good natured crowd gathered to watch.  The police eventually arrived and after a few discussions soon had the handcuffs off to the disappointment of the lunchtime shoppers.
