Undaunted, Meltdown will continue the class war skirmishes at the enemies HQ a week today:

We will bring handcuffs to do things properly, or hand the MPs over to the police. And we will submit modest expense claims for the handcuffs!"
No doubt we need a root-and-branch remaking of how we govern our society, replacing the corrupt failings of ruling class representative democracy with the transparent openness of working class direct participatory democracy and political direct action – such as through...
