STWC up to its old tricks
Trotskyite front organisation the Stop the War Coalition has come up with a new stunt, calling on its gulls to "Bring children's shoes to the national demonstration on Saturday 5 August. We will leave them at The Cenotaph, on Tony Blair's doorstep".
I have not been able to establish what is the tariff fine for littering in Westminster, and would appreciate an update if anyone knows. I imagine it would be at least £50. Meanwhile, stand by for a possible repeat outbreak of life imitating art and someone setting fire to the wreaths on the Cenotaph. I think that was first featured in a Tom Stoppard play, but I may well be wrong.
The useful idiots along for the ride might take note that there are no condemnations of Hizbollah anywhere on the STWC site, and the SWP "are happy to join the Arab masses in expressing our solidarity with the fighters of Hizbollah".
Compare and contrast how the BBC's site
and the Sky News website
report on the march. Particularly the headlines.
