Coming out of Bank Tube today, next to the Bank of England and Royal Exchange ...
I was greeted with this sight:
Police everywhere ... what was going on?
Was Fred Goodwin about to make an appearance?
Was Lord Myners on his way?
Had they heard that a banker was in town?
No ... it turned out to be a demonstration against Huntingdon Life Sciences ...
Last time I saw this lot, they were outside Deutsche Bank's offices.
Ah well, bankers aren't that bad if they're only being shouted at for helping science kill cats and dogs I guess.
