OK, we guess there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with marching against the BNP. Was just that the Love Music Hate Racism march we found ourselves on yesterday (accidentally as it goes) all just felt a bit pointless.
The trot dominated affair had all the usual suspects and the typical air of self importance and whilst the motive was righteous it was very much a case of preaching to the converted. You have to wonder if the same energy had been put into fighting for real working class issues likes housing and low pay then the BNP might not have the position they now occupy at City Hall.
Still we drank some beer and took some photos, the trucks on sound systems were lively enough and then we went and checked out the tent city in Parliament Square, erected to protest against the deportation of people to Iraq.
Someone misjudged the turn out …
Holding hands for Jesus
The trots again incorrectly call the BNP nazis. The correct term is cunts.
