Worst phrase in a speech so far “the trickle down of tears”

ian parker

It was repeated and the ended up as “stop the trickle down of tears and fears”

ian parker

Not to be confused with the 1980s pop band “Tears for Fears”

Rally by Waterloo RMT and Lambeth Solidarity (photo gallery above) this morning. Simon Hannah from ACR spoke on behalf of Lambeth UNISON and called for organised defiance of the new anti-union laws being proposed by this Tory government which will take away the right to strike.


The Lichfield Enough is Enough protest this morning drew an estimated 200 people- which is an excellent turnout for this area where the organised left is historically weak. I arrived shortly after 10am for a ‘static and silent’ protest, after which the organisers said a few words. Besides cost of living issues, and support for striking workers, the issue which comes up time and again here is the appalling, hopeless Tory MP Michael Fabricant. Yes, he is a bit of a joke but we can’t afford jokes at this time and he has to go.
