top 5 popular campaigns

With the slightly misguided campaign to put another song from the same major label as the X Factor winner at Xmarse number 1, I look back over my personal top 5 quixotic missions of collective spirit.

1. the BANANA (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything)- style campaign waged by the CND

2. the successful campaign to elect a man in a gorilla costume as mayor of Hartlepool.

3. the Get George Lamb Off 6music campaign, one close to my heart.

4. the widespread US Christian censorship campaign to ban the His Dark Materials triliogy by Philip Pullman CBE from public libraries, schools etc. It's just quite funny.

5. the Cornish liberation campaign. A wonderfully short-sighted attempt to secede from the UK.
