Does anyone know what the man with the megaphone outside 160 Tooley Street is about? He's just started up again shouting at Council and was there yesterday when he started at 0850. I think he's entering his second month of formenting something. I paused once to hear murmers about 'child abuse'.

They don't seem to move him on and I'm not going to give them cause by calling the noise team. Anyone shouting at Southwark is fine by me ... just interested, y'know.

Could it be the same man who used to regularly stand outside the Town Hall in Peckham and protest via a megaphone? I was never sure what it was he was angry about.

kellandj - maybe you could provide him with a script to make sure your grievances with Southwark are heard too?

He was there last week too. I saw two police officers speaking to him but I assume they were unable to move him on; it didn't seem like he was causing any harm and so I think it is right that he gets to have his protest!

I've absolutely no problem with the protestor (see my comments above)but, despite being there most days (and me being able to hear in isolation things he says), I have no idea what he is there for. I hear him say 'child abuse' and 'worst local authority' but what is his the cause of his protest.

If you're reading this, could you make your 'blasts on the megaphone' in a sequence so those of us who only walk past briefly know what you're protesting about.

I am told from a source inside 160, that this is a protest over his children taken into care perhaps up to 20 years ago ...

I'd have to ask him....
