Take to the streets and do what? You'll have to fight through the millions heading for Primark first. Any street protest here is going to be about as effective as Cocker baring his arse at Michael Jackson. I feel for the people in Scotland (and to a lesser extent Wales) who got fucked over by everyone else but the real enemy are the rump of the 15m citizens who could have voted but didn't bother to vote and the many millions who never pick up a book or seriously question anything at all. How could anything approaching 15m people live in this world and in this time and not feel OBLIGED to register their views at the ballot box. Doesn't matter how you are educated or what your economic opportunities are, you're as stupid and as ill informed as you want to be. Forget the cuts, in the long term it is aliteracy that is the biggest ally of the bully state. How many people vote for X Factor contestants? 8m? 10m? Orwell's "Books v Cigarettes" remains one of my favourite pieces of writing. 64 years on and it could have been written yesterday. Doesn't look like 1990 any more, Toto. Back then there were still people in the workforce with a first hand memory of the country pre the welfare state and the clean air act.
