The best photos from the Occupy May Day protests in the USA

THE Occupy Movement grasped May Day and made a noise. In Oakland, California, Seattle, Washington, Miami, Florida, and New York, New York, protestors against greed, the rich, poverty, the right, war, unfairness, police and whatever else took their fancy made their voices hear. You might not agree with the protestors, but you should agree with their right to protest. The best photos of the day are here:

In Pictures: Nick Clegg, Gordon Brown And Griffin Executed At May Day Rally In Trafalgar Square

TO Trafalgar Square, then, for the Trades Union May Day rally. Nice weather for chaps – and chaps in chaps. It was a nice sunny day in London. The kind of nice sunny day when a man is minded to pull on a leather-look hood and execute Gordon Brown. And then hang Nick Clegg in front of the Houses of Parliament. And because it’s a nice day and the Left are anti-violence and war and stuff, why not kill Nick Griffin, of the BNP? No-one could think of good enough reason not to. So he was killed. Good day out. Bring the kids…

PS – No-one killed David Cameron – is he the union’s hero?
