Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

On the theme of being and remaining involved Brian Haw has died. May he rest in peace. I was in London last year with a writer friend and we were opposite the Houses of Parliament in the tent city there and he pointed out Mr Haw and explained his protest. What a passionate and determined man he was.

“Mr Haw, 62, began his round-the-clock protest opposite the Houses of Parliament against the UK’s policy in Iraq and elsewhere on June 2, 2001.” He maintained it for 10 years.

Co-incidentally today I was reading this piece about Orwell today and found his sense of the practical & ordinary very comforting.
