I am very very tired. Work was hellish.

I may be moving to the South London office soon. So I might be looking for a place around Clapham or even Brixton this summer.

Becky and I went down to central London have a look at the protests tonight.

We saw plenty of verbal abuse of the police, some amazingly heavy-handed police 'containment' (people being surrounded by about 3 times the number of riot police and only being allowed to leave the area upon giving their names - whether they were protesters or tourists or whatever), some random pathetic mindless violence (a few windows smashed, bins ripped up, and a small fire), and good old-fashioned police brutality to protesters (pushing them over, knocking them off bikes with a well-aimed baton blow to the stomach, trying to get their horses to walk over them) and to their own horses (one poor beast was foaming at the mouth and baring its teeth as some animal rights protesters begged it be allowed a drink).

Oh, and a riot policeman in a police line charged into Becky, which I thought was rather rude.

Tiiiiiiiired. Early night.
