|So how many turned out for the London demonstration against the war? The organisers claimed 100,000, the police said 15,000, and one bloke who was there reckoned about 50,000. Take your choice of figures.|
The numbers are not that important, anyway, because if 2,000,000 could not stop the war three years ago, then the much smaller numbers that turned out yesterday are not going to have any effect.
The good news is that the warmongers are reduced to pointing to these figures as proof of something or other. That is all they have left after three long years of war. Less people turned out yesterday than three years ago so, er, that's all folks.
