This afternoon I went to Argyle Square to take part in the Free Tibet Rally. My photo isn’t very good and fails to convey that the small square was very full. I reckon that something in the order of 1,000 people were there and I was disappointed not to see it covered on BBC News 24 since I have got home. I did briefly turn over to Sky News to see them interviewing Joanna Lumley at the entrance to the garden.
The high point for me was an excellent speech by Labour Vauxhall MP, Kate Hoey, who excoriated Gordon Brown for getting involved in the torch relay and asked how dare the Chinese ambassador parade through London with the torch.
