Class warfare and spring cleaning

Only in Britain would a group of anarchists think cleaning up a war memorial is a revolutionary, sticking it to the man and radical idea.

Weeds, litter and leaves were cleared from an "unkempt" war memorial by a political group at the weekend.

Walthamstow Anarchist Group (WAG) collected five bags of refuse from the area around the memorial at the Territorial Army barracks in Lea Bridge Road on Saturday.

The group carried banners saying "Politicians lie, we die" and "Troops out of Iraq", as part of a protest against politicians sending the working classes off to war.
Do you think they had a nice cup of tea after a day of class war?

PS Get this quote...

A spokeswoman for Walthamstow Anarchist Group said: "The state of this memorial is symbolic of how politicians happily spend millions on sending young working class people to kill or be killed but they do not care about lives that are lost in the wars they start."...
Well if you care so much I'm sure you'll start cleaning the war memorial on a monthly basis then. What? This was just a publicity stunt? You surprise me.
