The weariness of the long distance snapper

Energy, chaos and anger fuelled one fast march today. Starting suddenly from Trafalgar Square with a Whitehall sprint a few thousand annoyingly fit students reversed, ran through the park and headed off towards St James leaving a trail of puffing photographers and red faced cops.

Then they sped up, Vauxhall Bridge Road, back to Westminster, Piccadilly, Regent Street, Oxford Street, Holborn, Aldwych, a few futile attempts by police to block the way were simply ignored. Then St Pauls, Barbican and back to Trafalgar Square. Quite a workout.
The sense of betrayal over the LibDems broken promises is getting stronger, not diffusing. Perhaps the Christmas break will let the pressure drop but there's still a couple of weeks to go and I wouldn't bet on it.


  1. not getting any of this in norwich... which in itself is not surprising cos we're a law abiding lot here,
    what is odd is that norwich south has a lib dem mp (just) elected instead of charles clarke probably by the uea student vote.

    there again.....

  2. You be careful, David.

    It might be time to invest in some inline skates or some such.
