"A BreadFund is not an insurance company; it is a small group of self-employed people who pay money each month into a fund from which they receive financial support if they are unable to work through illness or injury"
No woman in a burqa (or a hijab or a burkini) has ever done me any harm. But I was sacked (without explanation) by a man in a suit. Men in suits missold me pensions and endowments, costing me thousands of pounds. A man in a suit led us on a disastrous and illegal war. Men in suits led the banks and crashed the world economy. Other men in suits then increased the misery to millions through austerity. If we are to start telling people what to wear, maybe we should ban suits.

To celebrate and amplify the http://hannahfestival.com ethos this year I'm hand-delivering copies to interesting, like-minded groups here in Liverpool. First up is Sam from http://homegrowncollective.co, a brewer making good beer that also looks at its impact and surroundings. Added bonus of lunch at the similarly ace http://homebaked.org.uk cooperative community bakery
Lunchtime meeting with @homegrown_collective over at @homebakedliverpool means a midday #InTheSaddle ridr
