Live and Direct

In the May 5th 1987 issue of Red Rag: the only independent telephone system in Britain other than British Telecom is in Hull, where the telephones are run by the local council; while BP lost 50,000 jobs, Hull has a policy of retraining employees displaced by new technology; it is cheaper to subscribe to than BT and far more efficient in its service. Radio 210 reports that local anarchists have prepared posters, leaflets and stickers as part of a "Don't Vote" campaign; but you should vote for the SDP-Liberal Alliance because David Owen wants power and if we help him, perhaps he will throw us a few crumbs once he has leapt into partnership with the Tories; and the Rag has a recurring inability to decide exactly what is or isn't folk music.
