Today there was a small demonstration in the Market Square. Not against the council this time, but against nuclear weapons. Today, 64 years ago, the first atomic bomb was dropped over the Japanese town of Hiroshima, killing thousands. Another one was released a few days later over Nagasaki. It might not have been the best move to make, but at least it bought world war 2 to an end after six years.
Lets hope they never have to drop another.
Nearly 30 years ago OMD had a hit called Enola Gay, which was about the B29 that dropped the bomb. You can see it here
