Conspiracy theory anyone?

I leave you to read this one for yourself.

Yesterday at least a million people took to London’s streets to mount the UK’s biggest ever anti-war protest. And yesterday, webcams along the marchers’ route were down "for operational reasons."

Operational reasons, old lags will recall, is British policespeak for ‘I’m not going to tell you,’ while one milion is policespeak for two million.


Knight, Vaughan and Anderson do it again. England look like they might actually be able to play one day cricket. Trescothick is still suffering from his run of poor form though 🙁

Britain’s biggest ever protest

One million people went to London to tell Tony and George what they thought of possible war against Iraq. Stunning. A million people. That’s one in 60 of the entire population (or 1.6%). Surely New Labour – until now so slavish to public opinion, focus groups and opinion polls – are going to have to take a serious look at their actions. If you take the 2001 election that provided Labour with its landslide only 26,000,000 people voted. Are they in danger of repoliticising the population against them? How many marchers didn’t vote last election? How many marchers voted Labour?

It’s not in our name Tony, and you may just learn the hard way.
