Subject: The State Opening of Parliament
Security: Public
Oh joy!

The State Opening of Parliament will be next Tuesday. This means high security in the area.

I shall be involved in the driving of a white van through the immediate area the morning of the day before, and the evening after, the event.

Hmph.

(I'm not looking forward to the alarm going off on Monday morning. I have to be at work by 05:00. I really don't function well at that time of morning, but we need to be in Westminster by 08:00.)

(And when I say 'immediate area', I'm talking about a destination a mere 300 metres away.)

Hm, I think you need some handy "We are law-abiding citizens going about our normal business" stickers.

I've just been at a briefing about what we're doing for our demonstrations, too. We'll have to explain to the local constabulary that these are product demonstrations.

That may not be good enough if they pick Monday to evict the protesters in Parliament Square. Carry ID and a letter from the destination saying you have a reason to be there.
