    Ed Balls getting hassled by some bloke going on about "paedophile rings" on BBC new channel a moment ago.
    On the march with his wife (Yvette Cooper of course), kids & Harriet Harman apparently. Milliband not on the march.

    Please don't try and join the march from the front by coming down Northumberland Ave. It's full on the Embankment. Move down Strand.

    Very crowded at front. Head for Blackfriars.

    I think behind the "street furnishing" i.e. bomb barrier or next to the cabinet office building...

    ah right. Never heard of that website :oops:

    Looks good though, right in the thick of things

    Ah I see. Are they stopping everyone walk on that side of the concrete "street furnishing" then?

    Just saw Billy Bragg at the front (on BBC News 24).

    Just seen pics on News24. Looks fucking awesome, in the proper sense of the word.

    And they don't look like a bunch of anarchist trouble-makers to me.

    They're US.

    Police estimates always differ wildly to what protestors' estimates are :D

    Like to see the police start bashing all those OAPs, wheelchair users and kids :cool:

    Think the police are going to have to be a bit better behaved on this one

    They'll wait until later, when all the coaches have gone, and attack some stragglers.

    I'd give it 'til maybe 6.00pm(ish)!

    BBC reporter: "Some people have even brought their children." :rolleyes:

    The police never would have gone for the main march. Watch out what happens with the breakaway and feeder marches.

    Shocking. Did he mention some people are wheelchairs users as well and some are OAPs?

    (Which reminds me of a comment in the Daily Mail the other day after a DLA story. One of the comments was asking how people on DLA are managing to go to the protest as they're obviously not that disabled) :rolleyes::facepalm:

    Not a 'him', but some female reporter who it's clear by her comments views demonstrations through distorted lenses, probably supplied by police opticians.
