Luton was famous for straw hat making - no longer!

This picture is supposed to have been taken in Luton, Bedfordshire, in the early part of 2009. Luton was once famous for straw hat making - hence 'Luton Hatters' - but no longer. The town is now better known for Islamic demonstrations and fundamentalism and a fondness for Sharia law.

I have not detected much in the way of fundamentalism or fondness for Sharia law in South East Cambridgeshire - yet - so by my reckoning the residents of Aldreth, Ashley-cum-Silverley, Balsham, Bartlow, Barway, Bottisham, Brinkley, Burrough Green, Burwell, Carlton, Castle Camps, Chettisham, Cheveley, Chippenham, Chittering, Dullingham, Ely, Fen Ditton, Fordham, Fulbourn, Great Wilbraham, Haddenham, Hildersham, Histon, Horningsea, Horseheath, Impington, Isleham, Kennett, Kirtling & Upend, Landbeach, Linton, Little Thetford, Little Wilbraham, Lode & Longmeadow, Milton, Over, Prickwillow, Queen Adelaide, Reach, Saxon Street, Shippea Hill, Shudy Camps, Six Mile Bottom, Snailwell, Soham, Stetchworth, Stow-cum-Quy, Stretham, Stuntney, Swaffham Bulbeck, Swaffham Prior, Teversham, Waterbeach, Wentworth, Westley Waterless, West Wickham, West Wratting, Weston Colville, Wicken, Wilburton, Willingham, Witchford and Woodditton may sleep safely in the beds.

However, in the context of flag-waving demonstrations, I plan to suggest at the next meeting of Swaffham Prior Parish Council that we get up a demonstration with the slogans of 'Save South East Cambridgeshire' or Save The Farmland from the National Trust' or some such.

I have, by the way, used the Luton picture on my youtube presentation which my readers might care to view at -
