ACTOR and artistic director of The Principal Theatre Company Paul Gladwin rallied the troups outside our offices in Enfield this morning with his rendition of Shakespeare’s King Henry V battle cry.
Dressed in full costume, chain mail and sword, Paul inspired the Enfield Nine starting: “Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more…” he also took on the character of Richard III opening monologue: “Now is the winter of our discontent. Made glorious summer by this sun of York…”
We were also joined by former NUJ President Pete Murray, Don Mackglew NUJ Assistant Organiser and members of the Socialist Worker who have been covering our strike and joined us on most days.
Later the strikers headed to High Barnet and North Finchley, handing out leaflets and encouraging motorists to honk their horns in support of the Barnet Press and our cause to provide good quality local news.
