Pagans, Beltane and London

A splendid bunch of pagans, witches, warriors and true British eccentrics laughed and danced their way through London sunshine in celebration of spring, life, friendship and a love of sensual joy.

EDL "Patriot" march, London

A few hundred confused and stroppy islamophobes knocked back a lot of beers in the sunshine before making a noisy attempt at a march through Westminster. The atmosphere became a bit testy at the end and they could be heard complaining over the price of ice cream.
Disappointing really, they'd promised thousands.

World Press Freedom Day

Today, Monday May 3, 2010 is World Press Freedom Day
UNESCO have called for a minutes silence in newsrooms round the world to remember the journalists who have paid with their lives for our right to know. In 2009 UNESCO condemned the deaths of 77 journalists, most of whom were reporting local stories, not war.
UNESCO calls on media workers to denounce the murder of journalists and to demand an end to impunity for their killers.

Time for a change

After all the intoxicating passion of a Trade Union march from Clerkenwell to hear the necessary and exciting speeches from our selfless, dedicated Trade Union leaders the more forward thinking revolutionaries got drunk on Special Brew and headed off to Parliament Square for a spot of executing.
Cameron and Clegg anticipated the new parliament by being tidily hanged by the People's Executioner. Nazi Nick Griffin was torn to pieces by the celebratory crowd and then we all settled down to enjoy Gordon Brown's beheading.
Heavy rain washed away the blood and confetti and so we all went home for a nice mug of cocoa.
