Going for a little walk...

I meant to post about Old Holborn's idea a while ago, but I rather think that I shall book the day off work and partake of a little walk...
I like to keep fit. Walking is good. This year, I have decided that a brisk stroll is in order.

On November 5th 2008 at midday, I shall walk from Trafalgar Square to Parliament Square and then back to Trafalgar Square. 30 minutes of exercise is good for me, the doctor tells me.

If you would care to join me on my ramble, please feel free to do so. You will be able to recognise me as I shall be dressed like this.


If you too would like to dress the same as me, you can buy your rambling outfit on Ebay. V for Vendetta outfits are going to be this year's thing, I can feel it.

Would anyone care to join us in, y'know, just taking a little stroll?

"There is something terribly wrong with this country isn't there?"

You're not wrong there.

So, just to remind you, that's November 5th 2008 at midday. It's not a protest, you see, just a little stroll...

UPDATE: well, what do you know? As if by magic (hem-hem) a Facebook Event and Facebook Group have suddenly appeared...

Can I bring arm and leg weights so I can gain some kind of aerobic benefit from it?

Does one need to be a Libertarian or Anarchist (as V was in the film. I'm not implying Libertarians are anarchists. Just covering my back here :D) or may a member of the tories who is pretty miffed at the way the country is run and does not like the way many of our rights are being taken away shamelessly, join in?

For health reasons of course. A bit of a walk would do the heart good...

Devil's Kitchen said...

Anyone who is "pretty miffed at the way the country is run" -- left, right, Tory, libertarian, LibDem, UKIP, anarchistwhatever -- is welcome to join us.

It is, after all, just a little stroll. Not a protest or anything; just a little stroll in fancy dress...

Oh, I'm not so sure. Remember the poor guy who was arrested for having a tea party in the restricted area? He Victoria sponge had the word "peace" iced on it..

My doctor has recommended I should go out for strolls so I will probably be along for the walk!

Too bad the film was complete and utter crypto-fascist shit.

Old Holborn said...

Many thanks for this DK. I'm a complete arse when it comes to facebook or myspace but will update my site accordingly.

Everyone is welcome, but remember, this is a walk, not a protest. The minute some idiot hikacks it for their own ends, the fun is up

Not a sheep said...

I forsee arrests aplenty, don't forget that this government don't have a sense of humour.

Old Holborn said...

On what grounds?

I am going for a walk, dressed as I please (Guy Fawkes) on Nov 5th. That is (not yet) illegal.

Can I bring my guillotine, please?

Snowolf said...

Can I bring my guillotine, please?

Do you have some documents you need trimming to a certain size? You'd probably be best trying to do it on a stable surface rather than whilst walking down Whitehall.

We could all bring office equipment, I have access to a fairly impressive hole punch. . . oh. . . THAT sort of guillotine.

V for Vendetta is on Sky tonight at 10pm, if any of you plebs have a film subscription

Meanwhile, life imitates art

Sounds interesting [adds to diary...]

I'm going, but I'm not wearing that bloody mask.

Old Holborn said...

Please do. And plenty of Dior. We don't want Billingsgate complaining of the stench.

fi said...

Ha ha.

Mac the Knife said...

Alas, I haven't managed to re-learn this new fangled walking trick, but I'll be with you in spirit... (wearing my own mask of course)

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately I cannot come. I like Mr Mac will be with you in spirit.... I shall await your appearances on the news.

What fine examples you set to our obese population. You should be commended.

the man from UNCLE said...

Ladies and Gentlemen. May I suggest cloaking yourselves in head to toe black sacking called burkhas.

The police farce will not dare come near you if dressed in such a fashion for fear of being labelled blackbagpersonphobic, or some such 'phobic' decreed to be a huge crime by our government.

In addition to cutting your carbon footprint by walking instead of using the filthy internal combustion engine to get to your destination, you will be making the point(by donning said garment used by a religious sect that offers nothing but the highest respect to wimmin, gays and those of other faiths, that multiculturalism brings enormous benefits to this land.

Who knows, perhaps that late Lordperson of London Mr Ken Livingstone would be so moved as to join your stroll around the hallowed grounds of democracy.

Martin Meenagh said...

Very good luck to you, it's good to keep the cardiovascular system in shape with exercise and I'm sure the health and efficiency crowd would approve since you presumably can't smoke through those masks...or can you? Hmmmmmmm A rolling cloud of cigar smoke heading down the mall--now how would they ban that?

LH said...

I am so unfit I think that is a great idea, and where better than on the fair streets of London? Fresh air (ish), the sights, perhaps some people to share a stroll with. Remember we will be walking in the capital city of a great democracy: I do hope fellow strollers will remind themselves how wonderful it is to be free born people who are not subject to the petty whims of a tyrannical government,

LH said...

Oh and I'll be taking a day off from my work as a solicitor too. I hope none of my strollers feel the need to ask me legal questions.

Old Holborn said...

Excellent. You'll be very welcome as I am bundled into the back of Black Maria

What a co-incidence, I had already planned to go for a city stroll on that day. I think I will divert my route in order that we might cross paths. Wednesdays are my exercise day, I have the whole day off uni.
