I almost got arrested in Eldon Square Shopping Centre in Newcastle this morning. I was doing a bucket collection outside Virgin Records when I had a heated argument with a bunch of Tory students I’d previously encountered at Newcastle Poly. Minutes after they left a policeman turned up and threatenened to arrest me if I didn’t move on immediately. He wasn’t nasty about it and said he was from a mining family himself and had a brother on strike, but the law is the law and must be enforced. I didn’t argue too much but I can’t see what crime I was committing.
