The wonderful June Hautot lambasting Lansley for trying to destroy the NHS by relentless privatising.

Posted in June Hautot protesting by sheelanagigcomedienne on February 22, 2012

Here is June from Wandsworth taking on Andrew Lansley. She is a great , old trouper.  I first met her when we were demonstating and picketing against the closure of St Benedicts Hospital in the early eighties . She has been a stalwart of protests against cuts ever since and is very direct and upfront.

June was among a small group who attended Sally and Steve’s wedding  which I conducted on Brighton beach on a blustery September afternoon 2011. She had us singing cockney and Irish songs there and at the restaurant later until we were request to cease as we might be upsetting the other guests.  I knew Sally and Steve from the time that they fought to save Elm Farm. I was Ms Wandsworth on that occasion when they wanted a local celebrity for the event!
