It hasn’t escaped our notice that another orgy of representative politics is underway, with folk who do nothing else offering to lead you hither and thither.
When we conceived this event back in February we made a collective decision not to accept bookings from political parties, without anticipating that a general election would be scheduled for the following week. Some of the participants in the bookfair are members of political parties and will be participating in the forthcoming shenanigans, nevertheless we ask comrades to refrain from electioneering on the day.
We don’t want to labour the point; it’s just not what we’re here for.
