I was one of the Senior Stewards and had a very positive and uplifting experience, with a wonderful atmosphere and excellent and very friendly interaction with the marchers. It was as much fun as the Notting Hill Carnival, just a lot louder and with better music. Couldn't hear the damn radios much.

A Sky News journalist called it the 'perfect peaceful demonstration'. Wow. Never thought I'd ever compliment one of Murdoch's companies. I was, however, dissappointed in some of the BBC News story headlines, particularly these two:
- Anti-cuts march: Anger amid the Carnival
- No, the 'Anger' not 'amid', it was totally separate from the TUC Carnival.
- London demo clean-up costs will be 'tens of thousands'
- Hmmm. Compared to the £ millions/billions of tax unpaid by the 'victim' corporations?
And I understand that Police are being 'criticised for failing to protect shops and businesses'. Sounds like Sir Philip Green, Boots and Vodafone complaining, then. Well, how much protection do you seek from a Police Force that you don't fund?
On a personal note, It probably wasn't a great idea that after an exhausting day, I got up this morning early again to do a long reconnaisance ride for the Tweed Run on April 9th. See you there if you're going.
