Well It Started Peacefully Enough

boe-protest-008The April 1st demonstration outside the Bank of England in Threadneedle Street, seems to have made all the main news bulletins today.

It started off peacefully enough, but shortly after I left, it seemed to have degenerated a little bit. There was nowhere near the 100,000 plus that the organisers had promised, in fact when I arrived at about 0930hrs, there must have been about 150+ Press Photographers, ENG teams etc. Even when the first tranch of protesters arrived, they were still out numbered by the media.

By the time the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse arrived I guess there may have been something like 10,000 protesters.
