GMWRAG has been busy/otherwise engaged/
pigging out on Easter eggs but now we’re back and you can expect lots of activity over the next few days leading up to our meeting next week in Bolton.
So, first of all a bit of housekeeping. Whilst the live stream of Lucy Cadd has long since been removed an edited version of the live stream of Kester Dean taking about the option of pursuing damages for EA 10 breaches in the county court remains available on YouTube. You can watch the full 30 minutes at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=299mr1DlgQ8.
Please note that we haven’t forgotten there’s a GMWRAG meeting next week and we’ll publishing an agenda either at the end of this week or the start of the next. Minutes of the Salford meeting remain available in the usual place.
Following on from our very recent posts reminding people of our live streams, at https://gmwrag.wordpress.com/2018/03/28/final-chance-for-gmwrag-members-live-streams-from-the-march-meeting-of-the-greater-manchester-strategic-casework-group-are-still-available/ we’ve decided to make this remarkably simple for those of you who don’t know your YouTube from your Periscope; a submarine from an app; a tablet from a stone;
arse from elbow!
Before we take down the broadcast of Lucy Cadd from Leigh Day talking current public law concerns and the Carmichael judgement click on the link below and you’ll be taken straight to the video in question. Just click play. Well, it’s also good to remember to turn the volume up too!
You do know that the little triangular thing means “Play” don’t you?
Please allow us to apologise in advance for the relatively poor quality of the recording. It appears to be as a direct consequence of our failing on this occasion to tick the box marked “HD”. Lesson learned.
GMWRAG has been in forgetful mode once again.
Those of you who attended the latest meeting of the Greater Manchester Strategic Casework Group at Garden Court North last week will be well aware that GMWRAG live-streamed two elements of the event via Periscope. For those of you ill-equipped for the middle of the 21st century this means we “broadcast”. Worse still we did it from an iPad!
This was done at relatively short notice so the live event largely passed the world of t’internet by at the time. Subsequently the videos of both speakers have been seen respectively by 114 and 69 viewers, which compares very favourably with the final viewing figure of 128 for our live stream of Matt Ahluwalia of the Public Law Project from the Salford GMWRAG meeting. The difference between the two events being that we completely forgot to do any publicity about our latest live streams subsequent to the event itself. So, here it is…
Above you can see a screen shot from our live stream of Lucy Cadd from Leigh Day who kindly agreed to give us a complete update on the public law priorities of Leigh Day. Lucy speaks for approximately 30 minutes with a couple of contributions from the foot and sonorous voice off screen of Tom Royston. The live stream will be available via Periscope until Good Friday when it will be taken down as agreed with Lucy. You can follow Lucy on Twitter via @Lucycadd.
Below you can see Kester Dean of @KesterRights, which is also his Twitter handle (or account name for you oldies/techilliterates), also in action (fairly literally) at the same meeting. Kester speaks for approximately 25 minutes on the use of the Equality Act 2010 against the DWP in the county court.
Kester has kindly agreed that the stream can remain available via Periscope and it will also be uploaded in due course to the GMWRAG YouTube account so it will be easily accessible for those of you incapable of finding Periscope but perfectly okay with cat videos. As soon as the YouTube upload has gone live we will of course post on here to let you know.
All of this broadly translates to the fact that if you want to see and hear Lucy you need to do so ASAP as the stream will be gone by the end of this week bar a 30 second clip we will use for publicity purposes. If you want to see and hear Kester then you have unlimited time to do so. All we ask between now and the end of Good Friday is 30 minutes of your time before we remove the video of Lucy. Please note that, unlike the live stream at the Salford GMWRAG meeting, we currently have no intention of transcribing the contents of either broadcast because we had multiple minute takers at the SCG meeting and are fairly confident we can capture the main points between us.
Full details if the meeting can be found at https://gmwrag.wordpress.com/2018/03/14/next-meeting-of-the-greater-manchester-strategic-casework-group/ but we just wanted to let members know that we’re planning to live stream Lucy Cadd from Leigh Day during the morning meeting.
If you’re not in the GM area or unable to attend the meeting please keep an eye on the @GMWRAGtweets Twitter account tomorrow for details of the precise time we’ll be going live. As per our first broadcast we’ll be doing this via Periscope and you’ll need either an account with them or to log in using Twitter, Google or
Cambridge Analytica Facebook. At this stage we have no indication as to whether we’ll be able to keep a permanent record of the stream via YouTube so please don’t miss the stream and assume you’ll be able to watch it later. It may not happen.
Periscope offers the facility to ask questions during the stream so we’ll happily put these to Lucy if time allows.
if you know of anyone with an interest in the live stream please let them know, RT, etc. We’ll see you there.
