Many of you will be aware that a demonstration against the new Conservative government, here in the UK, took place in London yesterday.
Despite being an impromptu affair, organised extremely quickly after the outcome of the election became known on Friday morning, the protest attracted around 2,000 people at its height – along with the attention of the police.
According to eyewitnesses on Twitter, the cops kicked off and there were violent scenes at Downing Street – almost on the new Prime Minister’s doorstep.
Some commentators have been moved to ask, if this is the sort of scene we are seeing in the very first days of the new administration, what will our country be like after five years of it?
That is a very good question.
The large number of images arriving via Twitter prompted This Writer’s imagination to kick in and envision a video commemoration of this day – with musical accompaniment from Dodgie Jammers. This is the band that is unlucky enough to have Yr Obdt Srvt as keyboard player. Our song, This Is Not Democracy, seemed almost to have been written for the occasion, despite having been written five years ago.
