Well, I'm off to London for that demo...

... anyone who's going, I'll be there if you can work out who I am; I can usually be seen heading for the nearest pub after the interesting speakers are done. Which probably means after John McDonnell, looking at the list (unless I decide it's worth listening to Galloway for blogging purposes).

And if you're not going, well then you're a lazy tosser, but have a look at it on the telly anyway.

Hey Volty,

Pick me up a souvenir while your there, would you? A nice coffee mug will do. Thanks. :D

Come on Alan, even John McDonnell's speech was pretty crap.

Amusing labourite turn on the platform - one SWPer told me that even if they "refused to participate in the party of war [i.e. Labour]", he still "hoped" that McDonnell would win the leadership!

Lifting a finger for his campaign might help...

I live locally to Brighton... usually go to Pride, but I would have gone to the demo in London... I'm in Maroc at the moment so could not make it. I hope both had a good turn out.

I shall bung down some thoughts about it this evening - more by way of where I think it gets us, rather than a simple report. In the meantime there are some pictures of it on Lenny Lenin's site. He might talk a load of cobblers, but he is quite handy with a camera!

One of his commenters also seems to really dislike the Socialist Party - expressing some resentment that they even turned up... good old "non sectarianism" at its best there...

I think davidB is probably right. Not an easy issue.
