Olympic lockdown taster.

They can't have it both ways. Yesterdays strike was either a major disruption to the decent hard working general public (and ipso facto a shooting offence) or it was a damp squib; one or the other. Of one thing there can be no argument, yesterdays London march ranked as one of the more boring political events of the year. As for having a linear rally along the Embankment - words fail me. The choices were three in number. Storm through the stage and giant screen to Westminster, stay and listen to various union bosses urging us to fight the good fight (but not here, not now) or fuck off to the pub. Yeah! Me too. We did have the opportunity to inspect the new police control barriers. Blimey! I have seen the future and it looks hard to get over. Olympic lockdown? Can't wait.

"Damp squib" my arse!
Maude's now talking flexibility. Where did that come from?

F+cking hell! Those barriers are huge! They could close off whole areas of a city/estate with those buggers.
It won't be kettling anymore, it's be sardining or canning. And the little windows for the tazers, gas, rubber bullets? Jeeezus...
