Read about the biggest Equal Pay demonstration since the 1970s; a new beer from Balmain, called Balmain Original; the story of GoGet Car Share; and Charles “Chicka” Dixon’s union activism …

On a purely personal note, my brother, who turns 75 in October, has just bought himself a laptop and an internet connection! I think this is great, but fear that there may be comments here in future… 😉
