Sounds like John Key’s good news hasn’t filtered through to the UK yet.

The Guardian reports that “Thousands of anti-war protesters will mount a peaceful challenge to a ban on marches outside parliament today, unless there is a last-minute compromise with the police”.

The organisers at the Stop the War Coalition were originally told by police that the protest would not be allowed into Parliament Square because of 19th century rules intended to protect the passage of MPs and peers from the dangers of ‘radical mobs’.

We’ll post pictures as soon as they’re available.
