The EDL [English Defence League] staged a very small static protest opposite Parliament on the 27th October 2012, after they were banned from marching through Walthamstow. Totally outnumbered by the press and even more by the police, they managed to make some noise both before and after their visits to the pub. Drinking for England they were, and not a full set of teeth amongst them.

TUC anti-austerity march London October 2012. Matthew Chattle News Photography London

The TUC organised march through central London took place on Saturday 20th of October. Over 100,000 people attended. It was big and apart from the trouble on Oxford Street [which I missed, as I went over to Russell Square to look at the Bloomsbury Festival], there was little trouble.
As some commentators have been saying these events are impressive but are they changing anything? People make their point but to whom? It was very lively and at the same time very calm, very English in fact.

It is Trafalgar Day and the Sea Cadets were on parade in Trafalgar Square to honour Lord Nelson and his victory at the battle of Trafalgar, I wonder how many young Londoners even know who the statue is at the top of that column?

World Zombie Day in London saw hundreds of Zombies invade the Southbank. Great make-up [well I hope it was make-up] and everyone had a great time. All photographs on Alamy Live News then on Alamy stock after a few days

An alien Smurf invaded the Royal Parks Half Marathon today. It was seen joinging the runners at the start gate and seemed to join the race. Nell McAndrew and Ben Fogle started the race as London was bathed in lovely Autumn sunshine.
I hope the Smurf did well before they caught it and took it away for examination.
