  1. Heather Speight says:

    With you in spirit too. Sorry I’m not well enough to attend this year. Am a great admirer of Veterans for Peace, and Lindis Percy too! (Please give her my love)
    Good Luck and warm good wishes

  2. Good graphic on top of a good idea. Big driver to send those golf balls into the North Sea?
    Drone targetting I am told but mostly about the encirclement of Russia, constantly demonised by Hammond et al. Remind the warmongers – perpetual war, that 26 million Russians out of the 50 million total sacrificed their lives. You know Russia was crucial in defeating the Nazis.

    With you in spirit.
