2007 – Off To A Flying Start
Seems like the whole anti-Ken being anti-pigeon thing is kicking off big style – and it’s only January 3rd. Wicked.
Found this on the STTSP site. Pissed myself.
Then – the other day – there was a bit of a protest going on in Trafalgar Square. Not quite up to my gathering last year
My pal, Annie Mole, told me about it, and sent me this:
Cheers Annie! Shame I didn’t know about it before tho – would have got loads more of us down there. Free seed and everthing, apparently.
Tbh, most of us London pigeons had fucked off out of the West End by then and, judging by the total lack of interest from these two – esp the one on the right – you can see why. Just a couple of half cut out-of-towners staggering around on the New Year piss up. Twats.
Annie sent me this too:
It’s the leaflet they were giving out.
Couple of corrections on the facts:
‘Pigeons can navigate hundreds of miles’ – true, just not when pissed or over-excited. We can get lost just like every other mother and end up having to ask for directions or, in my case, breaking into the nearest cyber caff to get on Googlemaps.
‘Both sexes feed their young with their own milk’ – believe me, only when absolutely necessary.
There’s an address at the bottom of the leaflet to write to or – even better – sign my ‘Give Pigeons A Chance’ petition – then me and a bunch of moody pals can drop it off when we finally get round to the mass fly-by over Ken’s gaff!
Even the mighty Londonist had a pop at Ken. Nice one! They listed all the things people they interviewed in 2006 said about Ken. I’m quoted in there – and this is from Andy Overall from the ‘Fungi To Be With’ mushroom club: “Treat those the way in which you wish to be treated yourself” – see poster above.
This is the best bit – put Ken Livingstone and Brian Pigeon into Googlefight – it’s a close call:
Ken – 1,350,000
Brian – 1,110,000
Watch your arse, Ken. I’m right behind you!
‘Brian Pigeon for Mayor’ – that could work…
