This episode is subtitled: ‘The truth is out…’
‘Teacups & Tulips is a flower shop and tea room. Politics is bad for business,’ Kim had said when Jaz tried to get her interested in the anti-fracking march. The march was due to set off from Linnet row, right outside our shop, the following day and Kim wasn’t happy.
Unusually for me, I overslept that morning and flew to work in a fluster. But when I arrived at Linnet Row it took me a good five minutes to work my way through the crowd of protestors.
‘Morning Jenny! Cup of tea to set you up for the day?’ It was Beryl with her Teacups apron askew as usual, selling takeaway teas, coffees and snacks on the pavement.
‘You can’t march on an empty stomach! Get your drinks and snacks here!’ she cried, like a barrow boy and she looked as though she was doing a roaring trade. A noisy crowd was gathering ahead of the start time and there was a real sense of excitement in the air. Politics bad for business? I don’t think so.
