Our man on the street was, as ever, on hand to capture the highlights. Suitably disguised in Class War t-shirt and dreadlocks, and accompanied by the obligatory dog on a string, he first mixed with unwashed masses roaming the streets in packs looking for a bit of argy-bargy with the Old Bill, which is exactly what they got:
