It’s been another hot and sunny day and we went off into town to do a bit of shopping and sight-seeing. It’s the Conservative Party Conference at G-Mex next week so there are plenty of road closures and the police have a very high profile. We’d planned on getting one of the three free shuttle buses and taking a circular tour but they’d been suspended as there was a demonstration going on by a load of hymn singing tree huggers so we’ll leave that until Monday. It seems it was a day for demonstrations as we came across another small one outside the playboy club. A crowd of women and young girls were chanting and making fools of themselves. It must have cost a fortune as there were around 20 police standing by in case of problems.
