There is a piece in this week’s “Church Times” – not exactly seen as a hotbed of revolution by a lady, Kate Chesterman, who describes herself as “solidly white middle class”. She says her husband is retired so I guess she is an older lady.
“I’ve exhausted the usual democratic channels for effecting change : voting,consultation, petition, writing to elected representatives, and acts of protest within the law. so, now, given what’s at stake, I’m compelled to express my opposition through acts of civil disobedience.”
Reading through the comments this morning, mainly disgust, at the treatment dished out Gary Lineker, I wondered how many of us have had the same experiences as this lady. I have certainly written to MPs on various occasions and it has been a waste of time and paper.
