Satirical Cartoons Thwarted by Anti-Meale ActionTagged as: culture history local_communities repression
Lord Biro's perspective on the May Day rally.
On 5 May I went to the May Day Rally in Nottingham to hear Sir Alan Meale speak and to give out a few satirical cartoons about him and Gloria De Piero which the Mansfield Chad and Ashfield Chad newspapers somehow failed to publish (they were in my art show in Nottingham July 2011).
Sadly the Anarchist Federation wouldn't let him speak. After a verbal confrontation with one of them in which I said 'I know he's fat pompus c..t, but you should let him speak', I left the meeting without giving out any cartoons.
When it comes to freedom of expression etc the Anarchist Federation and the Manfield Chad may have more in common than they think. I shall spend next May Day in the Dog and Partridge watching the football or listening to the disco later in the full knowledge that there won't be any anarchists, SWP rebels or middle class Marxists in there to spoil my day.
