On Sunday I spent an interesting and entertaining three hours with Mike Porter, above, a stalwart supporter and former BBC sound engineer, along with Dave S and Sally J, promoting ICMI18 outside the venue where it will be held, St Andrew’s stadium, the home of Birmingham City FC. The occasion was the major local derby with Aston Villa, the police were out in force to prevent any violence breaking out between the rival teams’ fans. The final score of 0:0 was celebrated by the Blues’ fans, given Villa had been expected to win. We were delighted with the warm reception we received from both teams’ fans, and we had plenty of productive exchanges. We handed out well over 1,000 leaflets.
