Passing Parliament square. Clusters of tourists sitting on the grass basking in the sun and taking pictures. Further north a sizeable crowd eager to catch a glimpse of ‘something’ in Downing St. Across the road (a police van in no-man’s land) two vigils are maintained against alleged oppression in Eritrea and a perceived failure in social care….somewhere else. A smart fence encloses the Cenotaph and a child wanders past Horseguards wearing a current Manchester United (home) shirt clutching a large cup of Pepsi. Protest and product placement in one fell swoop.
