Mayday, mayday!


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.

I suppose you could make the case that Wills wouldn't be ascending to the throne if it wasn't for Joseph Stalin. We knew what he was like and he was our biggest ally until the Japs bombed Pearl Harbour. I think much of our ocverage of Stalin is high hypocracy. And no I don't think he is anything other than completely evil.

Stalinism is already being partially rehabilitated in Russia - school history books have been carefully written to minimise the effects of the famine, for example.

Did you have a crick in your neck, Vicki, or a dodgy tripod?

You should take more water with it!

dear God, he's back: wassup, Duff? Been celebrating May Day with the comrades down in Frome?

I'm glad to report that David has finally finished playing with himself following the news of the demise of Osama Bin Laden. A shame really, because now he's returned to pestering the rest of us
