Review

"Is Orlando going?" one posh person asked another. These were mass-middle-class protests of an astonishing size. The lack of apparent utility or causation to make war, seems to offend bourgeois morality. Where's the profit? they say. As a hardened anarchist I disliked this pleasant meander through London in the freezing weather, there was no violence or chaos in the air, the normal thrill of large crowds is in their danger,this mob wouldn't have littered let alone ripped up cobblestones and burned London. Still one must appreciate the effort of the many, and note that it is very unusual in the history of our nation of shopkeepers. We can only hope it augurs a change in the chracter of the chattering classes> perhaps something is going on.
