This morning I suggested that we try the ‘Gandhi’ tactic of passive resistance and sat myself down in the middle of the road, loudly urging everyone to follow my example. Bloody predictably only about twenty or so of the lads followed my lead whilst the majority stood idly by and laughed at us, treating it all as a huge joke. The bastards watched as the pigs dragged us from the road and threw us into the mud on the verge! One of the Westoe Lads, Manny Benham, was thrown straight into the back of a police van because he had the audacity to answer back an inspector! That’s British justice 1984 style! At least the lad had the guts to try and do something different. It’s all getting very frustrating.
