Two things impressed me this afternoon outside of the football match against Manchester United. I was handed a flier for “In Search of Alan Gilzean” as I walked down the High Road which I gratefully accepted informing the Scotsman handing it out that it is a very good book as we passed each other.
Then at half time the We Are N17 protest moved to the next level when a person – Helen according to Twitter – climbed up on the window ledge of the television box on the corner of Park Lane and the Shelf sides of the ground to unfurl a “Say No to Stratford” banner and hold it against the window where hopefully the Sky cameras picked it up.
Whether it went out during the half time break or will appear on Sky Sports News later Helen must be commended for having the guts to climb up onto that ledge. I understand that she was ejected from the ground but will not be banned from the Stadium. Like many Helen clearly feels strongly enough about our proposed move to take such action and might have faced a lengthy ban for her beliefs.
