FISHING FLOTILLA DEMONSTRATION ON THE THAMES
On Wednesday I was part of a thoroughly enjoyable demonstration on the Thames outside the Palace of Westminster.
The above pictures show me with the organiser of the demonstration, Bob Spinks.
It was not only perfectly organised, but an excellent idea of his, making the absolutely “on the money” point, that the EU, far from being good for jobs, has actually destroyed many jobs, focussing in this particular case on the fishing jobs that it has destroyed and doing so in a colourful, interesting and provocative way.
So much so that Remain were unable to resist trying to do a counter-demonstration led by the appalling Sir Bob (“God-awful”) Geldolf, who was vividly pictured in the press flicking V signs at the fishermen illustrating his sense of entitlement.
Geldolf’s boat had very high volume loud speakers which he was using to try and drown out everything that was being said on the Leave boat.
Amongst the journalists, Michael Crick said that it was the best political demonstration that he had ever been to. I think that is high praise indeed for Bob Spink’s efforts.
Let’s hope all this activity pays off in the early hours of Friday, 24th June!
