Demonstrators frighten constituents again
Eight demonstrators operated a picket of my advice bureau today. This frightened a number of constituents who were worried by the shouting. I had asked them to be careful not to frighten people, but they didn't care that they were doing this.
There were 15 people who came to the advice bureau before the demonstration, but only 3 after they turned up.
John O Shea has a weblog here
on which he claims there were 20-30 demonstrators outside my office today. The photograph shows perhaps 4-5, but at the peak there were 8.
It remains, however, that what matters most about this is their lack of concern for the people they were hurting by frightening them from talking to me. They could have demonstrated on the other side of the road, but instead they claimed that they were not frightening anyone. There were people I know that were frightened, however.
It is not right.
[point of clarification - I count the main complainants, there are often other people who come with them. Hence the 15 people counted probably had another 15 or so people with them]
