Marion, it's not that I like doing it..I hate ironing. But if I left no 1 son to it he'd go to work looking like he'd just got out of bed! Christine

Both Christine, it was a play and became a statement, meant the Government had to change the way they treated families and overcrowding. It remains one of the best things I have ever seen. Do you remember Kes? Family Life? Poor Cow? There was a song called Up the Junction by Squeeze inspired by Ken Loach's play of the same name. Pat x

Christine I was brought there by my lefty Dad. I was hang on count on me fingers hey Marion you aint that much older than me then, LOL thought so I was about 12-13 funny cause a few years later I got hit by a copper and I kicked him too, and ran for me life through the crowd. I remember thinking i would be caught by them I was nearly wetting me self. Oh Christine I knew what Vietnam was, although only there was this War on and it wasnt right, then the Civil Rights and I remember standing for Dr Martin Luther King on his assassination. Oh the demonstrations I was on, all you had to say was there's a demo and I was ready LOL. I was in the anti nazi league as well so I kept going right up to the 1980's. Pat x
