Well.......... it\'s finally November the 5th and today .............. I actually get to see the Houses of Parliament get blown up ........... I was with the Occupy London Demonstrators more particularly the Anonymous UK arm of the famed hacking organization ......... the guys in the weird white face masks of the grinning Guy Fawkes ......... I got to admit it....... I am totally fascinated by this as the new symbol of global radicalism ........ so I was along to see what pictures I could make ............ I heard they were going on mass to the Houses of Parliament and maybe even to occupy it .... worth a look surely hey maybe they can pull it off.... I bet they could certainly jam its website :-)) .......... But they did not really have the numbers ......... a spokesperson for the group told me \"this was just a trailer for next years mass occupation movie\"........... \" yeah..... next year is gonna be massive\" ...... apparently :-)) ........ \"a full occupation of The House of Commons and The House of Lords\" next year...... thats what I hear :-)))))) ......... Anyway be that as it may........ I had fun hanging out with the good humored Occupy Crew........ and they did charge down through Trafalgar Sq as if they were goin for Parliament at one stage while I was there ......... but then they wheeled away............. I did not quite realize the significance of this charge ........ as they scrambled up the base of Nelsons Column .......... not until later....... when I finally got to see the movie \'V for Vendetta\' then I realized they were in fact re-enacting scenes from the end of the movie....... in fact thats how I got to see the Houses of Parliament destroyed........ it is all in the movie \'V for Vendetta\' ....... the whole place gets blown up ...... including Big Ben !! I know everyone has seen this movie already except me ....... its Amins fave movie he has been hassling me for ever to see it......... anyway today I finally got to see the movie........ and some live re-enactments by hundreds of people in white masks ........ good enough for you Amin ??????? :-))))))))......... hehehehehe.......... :-)))))))))))))

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
