Anti-Austerity March Had Vip Area

Recommended Posts

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3134232/Turncoat-Anti-austerity-protestors-turn-former-darling-Russell-Brand-telling-F-Miliband.html

This is the moment an angry mob of left-wing protesters turned on self-styled revolutionary Russell Brand as he joined them on an anti-austerity march.

The millionaire comedian had to be held back in the VIP area on Parliament Square as a group screamed 'f*** off back to Miliband' - a reference to his backing of Labour at the general election.

The group also called him a 'turncoat' for telling fans to vote for Mr Miliband's party while demanding an anti-capitalist revolution in Britain.

Brand and Church are gunning for a safe seat. Its a fairly common practice for washed up celebs whose careers have hit a dead end to suddenly 'discover' they have a political side when expenses and lobbying bungs are available.

Mark my words, within 10 years Brand will be referred to as the 'right honourable'

Some pigs are more equal than other pigs.

And have a VIP wristband that entitles them to 1/2 bottle of wine + all the sausage rolls they can stuff in their faces.

Quite professional looking banners for a 'peoples' protest.

Russell Brand said it was his fault the Tories won the election.

He also said he may have 'broken the country' by telling people not to vote.

I think he over estimates his own importance. But then again, he always did.

Its funny because turnout was actually up on the last election.

Burnham thinks the 'mansion tax' drove everyone away.

No, it would be hard to vote labour because of Islam apologism and facilitating of Islamic rape gangs, their almost fascist views on free speech and the complete inability to control immigration. Nothing to do with the damn mansion tax.

I have heard that unelected multi millionaire Charlotte Church was thundering from the pulpit, sorry, podium, that we should stop being told what to do by unelected multi millionaires...

In keeping with the contrarian spirit of HPC OT, I'd like to try and make a case that counters the anti-Brand/ Church tone of this thread.

Like to but can't.

It comes down to your attitude to money. The socialist once presented with millions will try and spend it like money is going out of fashion, a capitalist will invest it and attempt growth by restricting drawings to facilitate it, hence he is inflicting self imposed austerity. One reason capitalists like austerity, because most have lived on baked beans at some time in an effort to launch their business etc.

Hence lottery winners and those brought up with socialist values quickly run out........

To be fair she was very young when she started earning serious money and I seem to remember she had a mother who saw her as a meal-ticket.

And hence why Tories like Toby Young capitalise on their success, and show outstanding financial accumen:

Basically, the financially stupid can be found on both sides of the political divide looking for handouts.

Ah you quoted me before I edited to socialist from working class. Wouldn't want to denigrate 95% of the population.

I guess some started young though. Parents are a big influence.

And the anti austerity marches are an unholy alliance of those that really didn't stand a chance and got a bad deal and those that were dealt all the aces, got sizeable public sector pensions, should be laughing all the way to the bank, but sadly the bankers they got more so they are envious and revolting.

Probably to be found in the VIP area with Billy Bragg, knocking back those free sausage rolls...

+1 I am a Tory but my socialist mates couldn't have put it better, In fact Ed the Trot Millipede did something which the tories have failed to do reignite the successful blue collar working class vote as a real Tory constituency. The majority of Tories or proper socialists (i.e not Islington lizards who have never worked in their lives) couldn't give a flying f**** about the mansion tax

this anti-austerity movement is starting to offer a few people a few opportunities to earn a few bob

just like Icke and Jones starting out maybe

Brand - with his book for instance - is an extreme example because he is lumped up already

but people like the artist taxi driver - who already raised £10k to make a film and is now having a go for another £15k to make another film

I used to love demos when I was younger.

Always started at the front and stopped off at the first pub on the way for a pint. Rejoined after a swift drink and then off to the next boozer. Never made it to Trafalgar Square or whatever final rally point once. Used to enjoy the fear and loathing that all the Trot and Marxist groups had for each other.They spent more time arguing and fighting with each other than the establishment. Over the years I collected a fair selection of far out left wing magazines including the weird and wacky 'Anti Imperialist News' which somehow had failed to notice that the British Empire had expired a couple of decades previously. I always wondered if Tony Blair read it because he is the only other one I know who thought Britain still had imperial ambitions.

I love all the claims of 250,000 people there on Saturday.

I got off at Bank around 12 just to have a look before wandering off to the Tate, and there weren't many people there, even with just an hour to go before they started marching.

Good point. As Mrs T put it, 'socialism is all very well until you run out of someone else's money.'

That said, and I'm putting my soft-hearted hat on here, I think the austere capitalists you mention have often gone without voluntarily, in expectation of future gains. They probably often had a choice to go with or without, which not everybody else does. Somebody (Orwell I think) wrote that it's easier for educated, intellectual people to undergo physical hardship and deprivation, because they have an inner mental life to fall back on; but for those without that it's all too tempting to blow money on instant satisfaction.

I can imagine that for somebody none-too-bright raised on the teat of state socialism, the thought of having to watch the pennies and make your own way in life must be pretty horrifying.

London demos are a great place for a Northern poor lad to shag posh southern girls.
