I visited bus depots in Cricklewood, Westbourne Park, and Shepherds Bush. I managed to get the mechanics at one garage twinned with the kitchen but everyone else was already committed elsewhere. I did a first for me, addressing a meeting on the top deck of a bus because management wouldn’t allow me inside the depot. It was a novel experience and fairly successful. No money but good support. One thing I noticed today was the tremendous we get from the black community. I know what Brixton and Toxteth were really about now, having been at ‘The Battle of Orgreave’, and am a proud card carrying member of the ‘Enemy Within’.
