A little story with pictures
by me, Ian.
I went to Speakers Corner on the last Sunday in July.
The crowd flowed in a slow moving current, clinging to a
speaker then moving on to the next.
The speakers enjoyed explaining the finer points to some
of the dim-witted members of the crowd.
above: This bloke just stood there.
above and below: I could not understand a word
he said. Not that it matters.
It's an occasion where one should dress appropriately.
above: This fella was full-on. Got everyone stirred up.
Except me. Takes a team wearing navy blue to get me excited these
above: Two members of the crowd have a full and frank
exchange. The bloke on the left was banging on about creationism
in a none-too-eloquent fashion, and the bloke on the right (put a
shirt on man!) was an American who subscribed to the theory of
evolution. (as well as TV Week and Big Truckin' Monthly)
He was an arrogant bastard too. The lady in the background was
looking at me. Obviously.
above and below: An anarchist. The least convincing
anarchist going round. "I have no answers!" he proclaimed.
Fool! He looked like a bloke who was doing fairly well out of
the current system.
