“Dear lighthearted folk

Just a quick hello, if you phone Stockport Council, like I did last week, you could be put on hold and left listening to a song by Snow Patrol – chasing cars, I was left for 20 minutes listening so while I was waiting I put the words to script and went and waited in Fred Perry House. I sat on the floor and while waiting played the song and lyrics on my phone, the funniest thing a lady on an internal phone was also waiting and laughed because she was listening to the same from two different sources. She liked mine best because she followed the lyrics with a smile followed by many others there who were also waiting.

A kind police desk clerk informed myself the police had been called and were on their way, so to avoid arrest might I leave before they arrived. The Council security guards were not very pleased, but it is quite ok for us to be kept waiting. Take note of the words that are sung in the lyrics the council should read and listen themselves then they will understand.

I did not get arrested and later contact the police haven’t commented they will be taking any action – only smiles the lighter side of peaceful protest make people smile and they will be on your side.

From Mike. Keep your chin up and a smile a day will keep the council at bay.”
