Look at me!

Depressingly, a big turnout for the TUC rally yesterday has been undermined by the handful of self-obsessed morons who decided to smash a couple of windows. Of course, the march was overwhelmingly peaceful, but we all know what the headline is going to be in the right-wing press. And there is no real excuse, because this is not revolutionary action, but instead basically attention-seeking: protest becomes a kind of X-Factor, so-called 'anarchists' who have never read any political theory simply joining in the miserable cult of celebrity the country is sinking into.
