‘ANARCHISTS WILL BE HAULED FROM THEIR BEDS’
by Ian Bone
‘Officers are considering a series of ‘pre-emptive strikes’, which could see anarchists being hauled from their beds and arrested on the morning of the wedding.’ ………..Daily Mail today. I looked up ‘haul’ in the dictionary and was horrified to read this…….’ to be transported or conveyed by cart’. Jesus – not even to be shoved into a car but humiliated by being placed in an open cart! But what’s the etiquette of being hauled from your bed – how should one prepare? I’d reccomend getting your best wincyette pyjamas on and sitting bolt upright in bed reading Freedom so you can’t be confused with other family members. I’d suggest decent breakfast – dippy egg, marmite soldiers. You might like to change the sheets – could be embarassing ..and get rid of anything you wouldn’t want others to see under the bed. Then compose yourself and wait for door to be battered down. If nothing’s happened by about noon it’s probably safe to get up.
