You want a date with a revolutionary? Then enter our competition. Just don’t tell Michael Gove . . .


UnionNews has teamed up with Bookmarks to give away five Big Red 2012 diaries.

The colourful week-to-view diary, measuring 15cm by 10cm, is packed with colour photographs of contemporary demonstrations and illustrations of historical ones, together with reading recommendations and a fascinating ‘On this day in history’ line on most days. It also has a useful activists directory at the back.

On the expectation there will be more than five correct answers, please complete the following sentence as a tiebreaker: “I think Michael Gove is an alien because . . .” Send your answers to

* You can see an online version of the diary here and you can order one for yourself here avoiding the agonising wait to see if you’ve won our competition.
