ANDY PARSONS NEWS
'They tried to tax our hot pasties. We stopped that. They tried to tax our caravans. We stopped that. They tried to tax our grannies. We stopped that. Never again will a political party try and stop us enjoying a Ginsters with an elderly relative on a piss-poor family holiday.'
Ever got so worked up by the state of the world that you've been totally unable to do anything about it and had to have a little sit-down? Then come and join the support group for fellow slacktivists and do some more sitting down, this time in a group.
The first meeting of the Slacktivist Action Group takes place on Monday 26th October with guests including Geraint Davies MP, and the second on Monday 30th November with guests including David Hanson MP. A live podcast recording will be available for free download via Acast after the show.
Check back for news on further guests in coming weeks.
