It’s my first morning in Bristol, living on a canal barge near Bristol Bridge. I go out into the sun on my bike to find some bits and pieces, and within 5 minutes see my first pirate of the day, in Castle Park, in full regalia, with cutlass. Every time I’ve been here i see pirates – last time a horde of them on a walking tour. Bristol is happily obsessed with its piratical and disobedient past, yet not so convinced about a piratical and disobedient present.
