God, you spend days photographing royalist idiots and when you finally get to go on your own march, the 1st May international workers' day march, you have to put up with idiots like this.
To be honest, it's the same every year. But the march through London was joined by more dubious groups than usual, it seems, this year. Every year I ask myself: can I, in all conscience, march alongside the Stalin Society? I'd like to egg their banner one year - but I think I'd get beaten up. It's probably worth it, isn't it?
There were some respectworthy people, on the march, honest! This group of restaurant and domestic workers organised by the Unite union were good: reassuring to see them tucking into some fast food!
There are some more pictures here.
Note to self: stop photographing everything at a funny angle.
