March 26 last year, up to 250,000 march to Hyde Park, and whilst Milliband is rambling on about how he understands what people are facing, a black bloc was smashing up the Ritz, banks and several shops only for the privileged few. The stories stayed in the press for days, the issues of the march highlighted and brought to the table to be discussed.
October 20th this year, tens of thousands march to Hyde Park, and whilst Milliband is rambling on how he understands what people are facing………those in power sat back, drank champagne and discussed the colour of Ed’s tie! There is a small piece about the march but tomorrow….well lets see.

The old age question of the brick and the ballot box.
