Seen today on the BBC. All the old green goddesses from the fireman’s strikes are apparently going to Nigeria. They don’t get stoned like they do in parts of London, Bradford or Liverpool, but they get cheered and people sing in the streets! I wonder if Jill has seen one?
I remember one tipped over on the way to a Bedlington working men’s club next to the roundabout (was it the Top Club?) in about ’77. There was a gas explosion and it blew someone walking past straight over the railings and they landed in the middle of the roundabout – but didn’t die!
