just as we were coming to the final corner at the end of Birdcage walk, some marshals overtook us, and stopped a guy in front, demanding to examine his bib. I wasn't going to turn and look but I assume he was one of these erm 'recyclers.'
the english / tories are the pantomime villains now but once you play that card it always goes the same way. it will be eastern european, muslims, whatever before long. UKIP are doing the same thing, its just that the SNP have a hard left audience so they take that as a starting point. They brand themselves by mixing nationalism with socialism.
