Best speech of 26 March TUC demo: Dave Nellist

Dave Nellist's speech 26 March

On the day's violence by young protesters looking at long term unemployment while the rich get obscenely richer, he said:
To the union leaders and the politicians, unless you seriously have a strategy to take on this government and its austerity programme, you are going to consign another generation in this century (1970s) down the blind alley of terrorism. Because that's the beginnings of that road.

The violence we saw on Saturday is born from desperation of the weak, not some bored whim. The violence that wrecks lives is coming from the state run in the interest of a shrinking number of super-wealthy. Why don't the media and politicans get as worked up about that?
