Eric Morecambe (Extinction Rebellion) Supports the Strikers!

NEU strikers and sympathisers joined Eric Morecambe (holding an Extinction Rebellion flag

behind his back in classic fashion) on a grey Thursday to demand a long overdue, fully-funded, pay rise for teachers and nurses – the essential backbone and future of society.

Local Conservative MP, David Morris . . . facing the wrong way as usual


At one point the strikers were even joined by insubstantial, pro-Nuclear[i], climate-change denying, social crisis denying, everything-obvious denying, Conservative lackey, David driving-past-in-Morecambe-&-Heysham[ii], Morris. If the face seems unfamiliar its because he’s not often around . . .

By this point both of David Morris’ legs had dropped off and the marionette was shrinking


Back from a long, enchanted sleep – in a nearby cellar – Morris was visibly overwhelmed by the occasion. Like the government, he hasn’t a leg to stand on. Pay Up!

Local composer, performer, teacher and producer, Peter Moser, along with Eugene Doherty, President of Lancaster and Morecambe Trades Union Council, and Sam Ud-din, District Secretary of the NEU, led the group in several renditions of the song made famous by Morecambe & Wise, Bring Me Sunshine[iii] . . . until we got it right – altering the final chorus[iv] to:

            Bring me funds
            Bring me glue sticks
            Bring me love . . .
