Estimated 50,000 march in London against ConDems’s austerity

There were an estimated 50,000 people who made the march today, starting from Portland Place, The BBC headquarters, but nothing was known whether the BBC News would deign to report upon the demonstration against the ConDem Cuts on our services. Perhaps they preferred to concentrate on the what hats women were wearing at the Royal Ascot races?

I do not know the numbers. I did spend 45 minutes standing in one place as the people marched.

BBC Breaking ‪#‎NEWS‬ and ‪#‎press‬ ignore massive ‪#‎demonstration‬ by @pplsassembly against ‪#‎austerity‬ in ‪#‎London‬ ‪#‎SHARE‬

If you were in the centre of London today you might have noticed 50,000 people taking part in a massive march against 10 Downing Street’s austerity policies.

If you did notice, you’re doing better than most of the UK press who seem to have entirely missed it.

It seems the BBC News are capable of tracking down a single Scot at the World Cup – Brazil 2014 who cheered a goal against England but fail to notice 50,000 demonstrating on their doorstep.

Still the Conservatives believe & peddle the lie there’s “left-wing bias by the BBC”:

Starting out with SELPA (South East London People’s Assembly)

To get a taste of the whole day:
