Furious parents occupy the lobby of venture capitalist firm.

14-03-2008 21:56

Its very well handing out leaflets in the rain...
On Wednesday parents from Pimlico School decided that petitioning and letter writing just was not getting them anywhere. For months they have been campaigning against the take over of their school by Venture Capitalist firm John Nash. Their views have been ignored by Westiminster council so they decided to occupy the offices of Mr Nash instead. The lone security guard made a pretty halfhearted attempt at trying to remove them and their banner from the building. An unbelievably smarmy executive from the firm by the name of David Johnson came out and tried to reason with the protesters with some of the weakest arguments in the history of debate. Having achieved nothing other than making a tit of himself on camera he scuttled back to hide in his office. At this point one of the neighbours who was unconnected to the firm or indeed the building tried to intervene by attacking a woman by the door and then my camera. Fortunately for him there was no damage thus negating the need to take retaliatory action on his front teeth. Then the cops showed up and were informed by the protesters that this was a simple case of trespass and therefore a civil matter. After consulting the regular occupants of the office the Police listened to the protesters concerns and then left them to it. Mr Nash must have wisely decided that getting parents from the school he is trying to acquire arrested was a PR disaster too far. So a successful occupation, no arrests and serious cause for concern for an office located on the ground floor of number 25 Buckingham Gate….oops.

Why is BBC abusing licence-payers' cash for Ken Livingstone propaganda?

14-03-2008 15:02

The bbc over-compensates by giving Ken Livingstone hours of spin as if to say that they, the bbc controllers, are 'sorry' that even a small fraction of ken Livingstone’s autocratic, dictatorial, egotist behaviour and his wrongdoing was even hinted at on any bbc slot, however briefly.
