DURHAM MINERS’ GALA FOR LONDON IF KEN LIVINGSTONE WINS NEXT TIME Ken Livingstone gave the keynote speech at last Saturday’s Durham Miners’ Gala and was very impressed with the event. He said that if he won the next London Mayoral election he would bring the Gala procession to London and have the banners and bands marching along Oxford Street. This would make a very impressive sight! There were 46 – 48 bands in the procession. I wonder what bands people think to this idea - is it possible to transplant the Miners' Gala?
