Steve Bray from Wales has given up his job to stand outside Parliament every day protesting against the decision to take The UK out of The European Union. Back in 2017 he started The ‘Stand of Defiance European Movement’ (SODEM). He has caught the attention of several of The Lords and one has loaned him a flat so that Steve can continue his daily vigil. Sometimes a loan figure waving his flags but usually joined by various protestors who share his sentiment.
Days of action take place outside parliament with people travelling to Parliament Green from across the UK. In Steve’s words “Its not a done deal”.
Nothing symbolises the first week in January better than the sight of a christmas tree thrown on the pavement awaiting collection from the local council. New years resolutions have been broken, the bank balance is empty, ‘on the wagon’ and there are still 2 months of winter to go!! These worthless spent trees, only weeks ago worth in excess of £50, act as perfect example of consumerism.
