Waiting with Ollie

One day a man gets up from his desk and goes to a hardware store. He buys paint, some sticks of wood and makes himself a sign. He takes it to parliament and holds it all day.

Next day, he and the sign return. And the next, and the next.

He’s been at it, without a single break, for two months now. When the storms come he climbs into a kind of shroud, clinging to the sign like Odysseus at the mast.

This is the story of Ollie Langridge.
