To Worcester on Tuesday with Rachel Shabi on behalf of The National, an Abu Dhabi paper. Worcester City Council has voted to twin with Gaza in sympathy with their plight, but amazingly was unable to provide anyone to talk to a newspaper from an Arabian country, even cancelling the one appointment Rachel had made. Were they under pressure from above, or didn't they just get the connection?
Anyway, I made a picture that would make a nice contrast with Gaza, and Rachel did a mass of vox pops.
