He's done bloody well to get celebrities Craig Charles, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Tony Martin and Bill English (New Zealand's finance minister) on board. I don't think any of them even live in Abingdon.

I see they're not so opposed to modernisation as to turn down the coming of Primark.

"OK, we need to go BIG for this campaign"
"We'll get the press involved!"
"And they'll take a photo of a whole gang of us!"
"And we'll be holding up a sign!"
"And it'll say 'High Street Bridge Chaos!'"
"Right! Let's do this! Get me four sheets of A4!"
"YE- Er, what?"
"Four sheets of A4, for the protest sign!"
"Crikey, steady on now, let's not go mad here. That's a bit extravagant. We're not Saatchi and Saatchi, you know"
"Oh. Well, I suppose we could fit 'High Street' onto one sheet, then we'd only need three"
"Yes. That sounds much more reasonable."
"Great. Three sheets it is"
"Righto. Now, which of us should be in charge of posting Network Rail the turds?"

I reckon this photographer knows about your blog. The picture is WAY too good, what with the nutcases, the signs, the folded arms, the moustache, the miserable looks and the pink shirt. A classic of the genre if you ask me.
