All the energy expended on vilification by those
poor fools in parliament is really rather affirming.
We're getting accustomed to being presented with
a virtual politics that bears no resemblance to the
experience of anyone who was there, except perhaps
a clinically paranoid plod.

Press statement by RTS people, 2 May
"Arise, and dig and plow the Earth, and receive the fruits thereof... renew
the ancient Community of the enjoying of the fruits of the Earth" - the
trance visions of William Everard & Gerrard Winstanley, 1649
What happened with the police and the press is quite
simple. The collective intelligence of a hierarchical
organisation falls rather sharply as its size increases.
So it can do nothing but trundle the tracks of a
pre-ordained plan. Both the police and the press were
left, as so often happens, playing out the plan for a
disaster that wasn't in fact happening. They repressed
and they reported the lies that they'd
hyped in advance,
not what happened.
We wouldn't expect anyone who wasn't there to
take the word of this website that there was not, in
fact, a battle the size of Bosworth Field in London
on Monday. So listen to pinko Francis Wheen in
Small riot: no one dead. Compare the lack of outrage over two
McDo being trashed in Brittany last week - one by some
fuckwit bombers who killed a woman. Wonder what goes
through politicians' minds... see above.
