I was at a seminar at the RICS in Westminster this morning. A comment from the organiser about the increased security (the building is opposite the Houses of Parliament) prompted me to wander down to the on-going protests to see how they were going, a few months on. Well, as you can see, the banners and stands are all still there. However, at midday on a Monday, there was a solitary protestor to look after all of this. There were more tourists poring over the banners than there were actual protestors. How quickly the flames of protest die.
