    A memory from the Poll Tax riots:

    Gordon blimey, I remember my Mum bringing me along to our local protest, there were a few hundred of us on the corner of our street( Or so it seemed, I was 8!).... I thought we did well, until they changed the name to Council Tax and we all acccepted it.

    Thanks deanfwj!
