today is may day, hurrah, and what a fabulously warm sunny day it is for a demo. in london it all kicked off in clerkenwell green, handy for a sandwich and a pint in the crown. in the early stages the three largest groups (in order of numbers present) were as follows:
1 - police (riot shields left in the van)
2 - photographers
3 - demonstrators
You might ask who the demonstrators were and what the demonstration was actually about. Let’s look and see what the banners said:
well maybe the MoD is correct that marxism is making a comeback.
Only it’s imported. the indigenous population was largely absent.
1 - 2 - 3 - 4, what do we want?
a class war!
Meanwhile the police had fixed temporary CCTV camera to the roof of Pinsent Mason’s solicitors office to capture the entire crowd, and individual police photographers worked their way through the crowd taking stills of all potential trouble-makers.
