Angela Eagle left the meeting with a double length of yellow anti-fracking ribbon and has stuck to her word that scrapping the bad gagging law which threatens to silence for example charities is Labour Party policy. We didn’t have time to talk about her decision to vote for the illegal invasion of Iraq (which along with other British Foreign Policy actions and arms-trade tie-ins) have very severely reduced both our physical and moral authority…yet the Labour Party is supported by arms-trade unionists…hence the idiotic refusal to sincerely embrace the green revolution. The news from Syria, Homs, women and children the wounded the old men children eating grass…the wrong people are representing the will to peace with Russia….more?

Thirty Acts of Courage – Greenpeace 21/11/2013

The view from my new Essex Rd (Islington) morning haunt just before 9am

Yesterday morning I called into the Greenpeace HQ, Canonbury Villas, close by, hoping to have a chat about Greenpeace anti-fracking actions only to be told that most of the office staff were outside the Shell Building on the South Bank. So I hopped on the bike for the downhill ride to the Thames at Blackfriars.

Shell Building.

To quote the Greenpeace flyer to this brilliant pop-up photographic show which appeared with no warning as the soul-destroying Shell employees were trailing into this massive edifice of planet-destroying capitalism:

‘These striking images are testament to the extraordinary bravery of these ordinary people. Gazprom playes a critical role in the illegal arrest and ongoing detention of the Arctic 30.

As Russia’s biggest company, its influence over the Arctic 3o’s fate is significant. Gazprom is relying on Shell to be its key partner in the Arctic, and so Shell wields considerable influence too.

Shell must do everything in its power to pressure Gazprom to use its influence to free the Arctic 30. We’re calling on Shell to break off its disastrous joint venture with Gazprom to drill in the Arctic.’

This is Justin – charming musical Greenpeace worker who was my highly informed companion in the chill.

The police wisely stayed away until around 3pm

In all my theatre years I never saw such a well-drilled get-out

Illegal busking pitch, Islington – I didn’t last as long as it took me to get the banjo out. The rain had stopped so I played on Upper Street – too much traffic to sing so I just picked hard for an hour and made more than enough for breakfast, several coffees and a packet of Amber Leaf.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Slept here, Chapel Market – woken at 6am.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Upper Street -bacon and egg roll and coffee – hit the spot.

Zuetlane and Mark just engaged on Portobello Road

Photo: Zuetlane and Mark just engaged on Portobello Road

As I was busking on Portobello Road this afternoon I was hired to play a romantic song for a couple at the moment of their engagement…
‘It’s a happy happy day for you
It’s a happy happy day for me…’

Congratulations to Zuetlane (with a beautiful diamond ring) and her man, Mark… so winter busking has it’s ups!

looking wintery out there – but there is a job to be done and money to be made! I wrap up warm and use fingerless gloves – and if it gets too cold for finger-picking the banjo I give the uke a strum. Dylan’s Billy for example, recently learned.
