Attended the Burston Rally today, at the invitation of Hoxne Labour branch. Its a Trade Union festival to celebrate a school strike that started in 1914. See http://www.burstonstrikeschool.org/ for more details. Part of the rally is marching around the village - the shape of the road network on the map looks like a candlestick. Doesn't look like any candlestick I've seen!
The speakers included Jeremy Corbyn MP for Islington. He made good points about preventing worker exploitation and his fear of a second term for George W Bush.
It was good to speak to the Hoxne branch and had a long converation about teaching. Also spoke to Richard Howitt MEP about some of the things he is doing around his constituency and also caught up with former mayor of Ipswich, Maureen Carrington-Brown, who has retired to the country!
I also accepted an invitation to speak at the Agricultural Workers Union (part of the TGWU) Regional conference.
