Walked down the Strand this evening expecting to see rioters, well, rioting I guess... you know, generally doing their stuff but was frankly disappointed! I wasn't going to join in, was just looking forward to a baton charge or maybe like a water canon nailing some poor bloke to a wall... No such luck. There was evidence of the mounted police everywhere though. My friend and I had to go to the IMAX cinema for our dose of excitement instead. "Ghost of the Abyss" was quite good - a version of Titanic without Leo and Kate. A third of the length, no up-chuck-reflex-inducing scenes and an extra dimension - so all together much better on the movie!
