    Just seen on news reports that armed police are looking for someone on a property roof at Clapham High Street. Appears to be very close to the party’s Head Office. Everything okay I hope!

    It is very near to Head Office which can in fact be seen on the first photo if you look carefully through the tree. Head Office is the next shop front down to the right after the Mexican restaurant. At the other end of the second photo you can see the shop where we buy milk and chocolate biscuits. There must be some other photos and videos out there in the media which show our front more clearly.This has happened before when a few years ago a black man was shot by the police in the bar on the other side of Head Office. Every time this incident was mentioned on TV it showed the bar with Head Office next to it.Who said Clapham High Street wasn't a good street to have our office in? It's going to stop the delivery of the reprint of our From Capitalism to Socialism pamphlet today, though.

    Doesn't it make it a dangerous place to store our archives?

    What a pity more black men can't get themselves blown away outside Head Office. Think of all the free publicity!
