This is like something from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The “fine lady” character from the “Ride A Cock Horse” rhyme is being prevented from riding her horse to Banbury Cross because police object.
A white horse had been specially trained to lead a protest march over plans to downgrade key services at the Oxfordshire town’s Horton Hospital.
Instead, the march on Friday evening is now likely to be taken over by a mock horse ridden by a man in a dress.
Except it’s real life. I think the line the spectators are looking for is “That’s not a horse. Those are coconuts”
