Gemma took part in November's public sector workers' strike, her first since completing her studies and becoming a full-time NHS employee last January. I am very proud.
One of the by-products of her involvement was that it's got me talking to (and trying to persuade some of my more conservative colleagues) about the strike. A surprising number are happy to take the government line, without question. I say always question what you are being told, by either side.
The march came right passed my office, but by the time I'd come outside to see her (plus her mum and Olive) come by, they were already at Victoria Square and were straining to hear the speeches. I walked down to get a few pictures, before briefly meeting with them on the corner of the square.
