Brian Haw dies.
Whatever you may have thought about Brain Haw, and it has to be admitted that the guy was not everyone's cup of tea, he was a committed and determined campaigner who just would not give up and go home. The death of Haw will give the green light for the clear out and clean up of Parliament Square in preparation for the Olympics. Make no mistake about it, between now and 2012 we are going to see a major sterilization of London that will have no regard for anything or anyone that stands in the way of the image of the brand. Parliament Square has needed a pedestrian crossing for years but how sad that that may be the sum legacy of a brave and principled activist.
