London

My wife to be Helen one of m best pals Dave and myself drove into central London, parked my car and unloaded our wheelchairs out of the boot. We took to the street to say ‘Not in Our Name’ and we wheeled the the three and a half mile march to Hyde Park. It was a really moving thing to be there as disabled people with other diverse pars of the community all lending weight to the same cause for peace and fairness – and to highlight the falsities of what the public were being told. It saddens me desperately as the bloody mindedness of Tony Blair and other senior Labour party figures (some still in denial) are responsible for so many innocent lives ended in Iraq. As someone who identified with the aims of the old Labour movement I was dismayed and upset as this betrayal of trust. So many families still counting the cost.
