Manchester Crowd Joins Woman Singing

Published on May 25, 2017(Today)

That was quite a special moment at the end of the minute’s silence in St Ann’s Square : Video Cedits – Josh Halliday

Goosebumps! Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow, the amazing woman who started that impromptu : Video by Josh Halliday @JoshHalliday
Don’t Look Back In Anger singalong in St Ann’s Square
25 May 2017 · Manchester, England

It fell perfectly silent for a minute, apart from the whirring of the police helicopter above, then there was a shout of: “Rock on, Manchester,” followed by applause..

Then, out of the silence, a woman clutching a bouquet of flowers began singing the opening verse to Oasis’s Don’t Look Back in Anger

The crowd of hundreds quickly joined in – it was utterly spine-tingling, and I don’t use that word lightly.

I spoke to her afterwords. She is Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow, the daughter of legendary Manchester radio presenter and DJ Mike Shaft. Lydia, 32, said she had “really struggled” since the attack but that Manchester “will recover.

Asked why she chose that song, she said: “I love Manchester, and Oasis is part of my childhood. Don’t Look Back in Anger – that’s what this is about: we can’t be looking backwards to what happened, we have to look forwards to the future.

“We all joined together and we’re all going to get on with it because that’s what Manchester does.” She added: “It really touched my heart and gave me shivers to hear everyone joining in with me

Bill Nye does not save the world or the left

  OK, I am a Democrat and hell I am left wing and happy to admit it.  (Brave of me since I live in Texas.) 
I have no problem having people call me a leftist.
Bill Nye is a hero to the left and hated with rage and passion by the right. 

  I think Bill Nye is a honest person and is correct about science but I think he is a piss poor spokesperson for the left and our causes.  He comes across as prejudice and  heavy-handed.
  He comes across as authoritarian and harsh.
  He has a new TV show on Netflix.  The show is called “Bill Nye Saves the World.” I saw it on Netflix the other day. 
  I could only watch a little of the show. I could not stand it.  It was not funny.  It was not well done.  Bill Nye came across as a joke.  But he was not funny. 
  The important thing to me is that he does not make the left look good.
There is no one that is going to watch his show and change their position. 
He is not a credit or a help to the left.  The right can show him and repeat what he says and make us all look like a bunch of prejudice people promoting our agenda. 

  We should all run away from Bill Nye as fast as we can.

  Michael Moore does not help us.  He did at first but now he hurts are cause when he speaks.  I think many Democrats agree with me now.  I think Bill Nye is going to hurt our causes much worst than Michael Moore. 

Trump Administration’s “Extreme Vetting!”

  My God … I can not believe how stupid the Trump Administration people are … How are we going to last as a nation for four years of this?

“Foreigners who want to visit the U.S., even for a short trip, could be forced to disclose contacts on their mobile phones, social-media passwords and financial records, and to answer probing questions about their ideology, according to Trump administration officials conducting a review of vetting procedures.”
