The demo was featured on Granada Reports which is a good result but a slightly disappointing turnout. I would estimate that there were just less than 100 people participating - we could have done with a couple of thousand. Nonetheless it was all good stuff and well worth going. We need to build on these demos and keep up the pressure on the Coalition, which is feeling distinctly uncomfortable at the moment.

George Osborne isn't Working
I went to the UKuncut demo in Knutsford today. It was the usual clever UKuncut approach, mocking Osborne based on the famous Labour isn't Working poster created for the Tories by Saatchi & Saatchi in the 1979 general Election. The poster was credited with helping the Tories win. The demo took place at George's constituency office in Knutsford. Unfortunately George wasn't in. I guess he was probably dining with Bob Diamond the chief of Barclay's bank who must be celebrating their record profits and 1% corporation tax.
