Yesterday 400,000 to 500,000 marchers converged on London from up t’north to protest against cuts by this Conservative government. Teachers, nurses, midwives, NHS, council and other public sector workers were joined by students and pensioners to bring the centre of the capital to a standstill.
The largely peaceful protest was marred by a few scuffles in Oxford St, but these sort of scuffles have often very little to do be the aims of the protest. In my opinion this will do little to change the mind of the incumbent government and I think it will need a lot more than a few scuffles to change the mind of David Cameron as it did with the last power freak Tory prime minister that this country had. No not Tony Blair the other one.
I think the local elections in England and the Scottish General Elections in May could show us the way things are going to go. Perhaps if the Lib Dems get a bloody nose we might see a bit of change in the house.
Phil I would imagine Cleggy is desperate to hang on. If he loses his grip on the second top job there can be no way he will keep the Lib Leadership. The stab in the back muppet squad would be queing up for it. SB
