Baltic Exchange and beyond

There are not many tweed jackets around here. Anti-cuts march in London.

with one comment


The exercise of my vanity continues. I guess every blog starter gets stumbled on the question of how to start thinking in blog format. Think blog! It’s an order. Did one go to the march today to support fellow anti-cutters? Hell, no! I only got out of the flat to get some material for the second blog post, so I can practice my writing skills. Well, it’s not entirely true, there was some yearn for solidarity and I knew that to be inside of ‘over 250000’ crowd is bound to be fun. It was quiet. Peaceful. Smiling police. People enjoying themselves. Slow walking, one way. Actually, It very much reminded me of the New Year’s Eve in St Petersburg, when Nevsky Prospect is open for pedestrians and half of the city gathers there… Oh yeah, only then everyone is rather intoxicated. And I can’t remember any policemen smiling.

Anyway, the procession was carefully directed into the appropriate streets and narrow lanes until every anti-cutter ended up in the Hyde Park. The whole event ended with a half an hour queue for a coffee listening to a load of waffle blasting from the temporary arena. Piece of cake.
