Somme Monument, Heaton Park
It felt like spring today, and the crowds were out in numbers in Heaton Park, near where I live. Boris was giving his 'roadmap' presentation around the time I took this photo, and there was a feeling of freedom in the air. Perhaps a little too much? 'Hands, face, space' has been succeeded by 'Data, not dates'. They do like their slogans, our rulers. They don't respect us very much.
Here's a reminder of another set of politicians, the ones who killed off a generation of young men, for no reason. 'Your Country Needs YOU!'
Their sacrifice is commemorated by this wall of tiles. See extra for sample details. 'Lions led by donkeys' is what I say.
