Apocalypse in Central London?
Lovely sunny day in London for April 1, Financial Fools Day. Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are leading, as I type, carnival parades from four cardinal points to the Bank of England, in the City of London. They are Red (War), Green (Climate Chaos), Silver (Money Crimes), and Black (Land-grabbers). On Facebook it has also appeared an invitation to flash-mobbing the City Exchange with tents and sleeping bags for an Eco-camp, but the “secret” was leaked by this BBC news article a couple of days ago. Would the Police have read the article, too? And, if so, how are they going to react? There is a lot of suspense and excitement for the G20 summit, and a lot of money (far too much) has been spent on security and parties for untouchable world leaders: would they allow a day of inversion, legitimate dissent, and genuine fun in the heart of the financial district? Do they celebrate April Fool’s Day?
