It has been rather long since I last posted, but I hope this will compensate for the wait.
To clear the decks for the We Are Norwich stuff, I will deal with the other stuff first:
- Asperger East Anglia AGM happened on Monday night – lots of interesting news, and for the first time in living memory I won a raffle prize, although it was the last to go and of exactly the quality you would expect something in that position to be
- On Tuesday I had an interview for an Administrative job at Manor Park Holiday Village in Hunstanton (I only got the call asking to me to come on Sunday afternoon)
- Learning Works continues to go well. On Monday I will be starting a Deskop Publishing course
We Are Norwich came into existence because a crazy church responded to being barred from distributing Islamaphobic filth by inviting the Eejits, Dimwits and Losers (EDL for short – I reckon my version of the full name is more accurate than theirs!) to Norwich. We Are Norwich is the group that is ensuring that when this happens (November 10) there will be a large reception committee to tell these thugs that they are not welcome here.
This Wednesday evening there was a public meeting in the main hall at the Vauxhall Community Centre in Johnson Place (I travelled direct from Learning Works to Norwich to be there on time) at which over 100 people in total were present. A coachload of us will be going to Walthamstow this Saturday to help make it clear to the EDL that they are not welcome anywhere, and I fully expect a four figure turnout on November 10 at Chapelfield Gardens.
