    Pro brexiters are planning to drive slowly down the A30 today.

    Starting from Plusha at around 3.30, I understand.

    Anyone ready to mobilise for a counter protest?

    Anyone who has driven down the A30 will know that it's always a go slow road. Bloody caravaners off on their holidays.

    It might have shown a bit more strategic ambition to choose the other end of that road, in the capital near the country's main airport instead of a few miles from Lands' End.

    So, should I bother trying to do any counter protest or do you think we should let them get on with it and just try and ignore them?

    In that case, stand in front of them with your banner and see if that convinces them to stop driving slowly.

    So it went ok. Got interviewed by bbc and itv and wound up some pro brexiters. Didn't have the balls to properly obstruct them but got my voice heard and stood in their way holding my placard leaving them just enough room to get past. They were a small bunch of sad old gits. I was the only counter protester so glad i went :)
