South Swindon Hustings Election 2015

Like the previous night it was a nightmare photographing at the Hustings last night.

Last night it was the turn of the candidates for The South Swindon Seat. It was another interesting evening. There was a certain amount of heckling from the audience but it was all well behaved, no seats ripped up and thrown this time.

The candidate for South Swindon are Anne Snelgrove for Labour. Robert Buckland for Conservative. Damon Hooton Lib Dem, John Short UKIP and Talis Kimberley-Fairbourn for the Green Party.

Three Demo’s and a Bike Ride A Grand Day Out for a Photojournalist in London

It was a busy afternoon in London on Sunday.

Whitehall was a very busy place. Firstly I covered the service and laying of wreaths at the war memorial by riders from the Help For Heroes Charity bike ride from Paris to London.

Then I covered the protest by UK based Turkish and Kurdish protestors who were there to show solidarity with all the protesters out in Turkey who are protesting against the ruling AKP party.

Then I covered a protest by some UK based Venezuelans who were protesting against alleged rigged elections by the ruling government party.

Then I covered a Free Palestine protest mainly by Orthodox Jews and members of the Neturei Karda who were also protesting against Zionism and the mass rally that was taking place in Trafalgar Square to celebrate 65 years of the State of Israel.

It was a hot, busy and tiring but really good day for a photojournalist.

Swindon and Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Election

I voted in the Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner election this morning. I was the only person there apart from the moderators who were drinking tea and eating bisquits. It is predicted that there will be a very low turn out probably less than 15% for the election.

Will it make any difference? Does it bother you? are you interested? will it affect you?
