Welcoming Vince Cable to York

Protesters with placards

Protesters gather to greet Vince Cable MP

A group of people from York People’s Assembly met Vince Cable as he arrived in York to discuss the living wage and in-work poverty. Despite many people having started the work day, we had students, pensioners, union reps and more lined up with placards and a clear message: if Mr Cable wants to fix poverty, he needs to start by undoing the damage his government is doing.┬áThe Press and Radio York came out to interview and photograph us, and several passing vehicles hooted their horns in support of our messages. The whole Lib Dem party are coming in March 2014, so it was a nice little warm up!
