Man to underwear on a freezing day and lies on pavement to draw attention to Tory policies backed by Tory-run council
As people queued at polling stations in their eagerness for real change, a Barnet man took a different route to draw attention to the ‘conscious cruelty’ of the Tories and the massive increase in homelessness and rough sleeping their policies have created.
The man, whose identity is unknown, stripped to his underwear and lay shivering on the pavement outside Barnet House, the headquarters of Tory-run Barnet Council:
Labour activists are out in the borough working hard to get out the Labour vote and remove what one local official called the ‘heartless Tories who are running us into the ground’.
If you’re thinking that the weather is too cold or wet to go and vote, look at this man and think again.
This is the country’s chance – potentially its last chance in at least a generation – for real change.
