Carol Service Tonight

You are cordially invited to a public carol service in Parliament Square at 6pm on Wednesday the 21st of December 2005.

This inclusive service will contain both Christian and secular verse, and is expected to last no more than an hour.

Candles and song sheets will be made available, with donations going to Medical Aid for Iraqi Children.

Please note that if you attend this carol service, it will classify as a spontaneous demonstration (of faith, hope, joy and/or religious tolerance) and there is a possibility that you will be cautioned or arrested under Section 132 of the Serious and Organised Crimes and Police Act 2005.

Might be worth attending if you’re near Westminster and fancy running the risk of being arrested going about your now unlawful business.

I'm 50:50 about attending myself even just to take pictures as, if it does come to a caution, I'm almost certainly going to think 'fuck you' and go the whole hog and I really can't afford the fine.

On the other hand, our police wouldn't be so stupid as to intimidate or arrest a bunch of carol singers just before Christmas. Would they?

This Police State that has been growing since 9/11 is really quite sad and depressing. I used to think Thatcher would be a hard act to follow, Bliar and his clique of vile cronies have topped her lot and then some. Grrr...

Answer = yes. They arrested that young Maya for reading out a list of names of dead Brit soldiers, hmm? Plus they loathe anything to do with Brian.

Upside is if you do get arrested, you are very unlikely to be more than cautioned. If you act up and it does go to court, you'll get off. If you don't you'll be a minor celeb and there'll be a defence fund. And your £200 or whatever will be payable at £1 a month or something, so it'd be worth it.

But that's just by my reckoning. It's worked okay so far. :))
