During the 15 minute commute between the building that houses the admin side of my Faculty and my office (you couldn't draw a longer straight line on a map connecting two points on this campus, it's rather convenient) I was handed a leaflet. I typically reject these with either a menacing glare or a curt "no", but this one promises to "defend the welfare state and public services" with a march and rally on the 10th of April at Trafalgar Square. This is organized by the TUC, and I see my own union on the list supporting this dramatic action.
So I shouldn't be concerned that the lad who handed me the leaflet looked like he's 118 years old, right?
