Thousands of anti-austerity protesters will march in London on Saturday to protest against public spending cuts enacted by a government fighting off accusations that it is run by an upper-class elite that ignores the plight of recession-hit voters.
The march comes at a time when Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative-led coalition is reeling from the resignation on Friday of a senior minister accused of calling police "plebs", a class-laden insult for working people.
The party faced a barrage of negative headlines on Saturday over the departure of Andrew Mitchell, the "Chief Whip" or party enforcer, four weeks after he swore at police guarding the gates to Cameron's Downing Street office.

By the same bunch of fools who are so totally enamored by their so-called Royalty who are in effect just elite welfare recipients whose only gateway to their unearned riches by way of the people is that of the lineage of a sperm cell.
Add to it that they are still pissed that we kicked their arsches to gain our independence when they were the world's superpower and then had to bail them out when Hitler came a callin'. One would think that after 230 some odd years later that maybe some of them may have gotten a clue. I suppose those who did are now naturalized American citizens.
Good interview in Barron’s today with Michael Hasenstab, portfolio manager of the Templeton Global Bond Fund, that gets into his opinions about the various ways EU and the US are dealing with their economic disasters. He holds up Iceland as a way forward - growth AND austerity. Take some pain today, while taking actions to ensure the economy can grow. Pretty interesting. Subscribers only from the Barron’s site so go to Google News and search Vindication for a Contrarian Vision for the free version.
What a laod of crap from start to finish.
Firstly, and I am NO royalist, the Royals actually contribute more to the UK than they take from the Civil List. And they run around in less expensive cars and transport than the US President. How much do you spend on AF1. Or the inauguration every four years?.
Secondly, how does 1776-1783 and Americans have anything with people protesting the British govt and their cuts. Honestly mate, dont flatter yourself. We dont think or care about you that much.
Lastly, your comment about bailing us out is the usual ignorant history I have sadly come to expect from some people here.
Yeah, I would not want too get in a pi$$ing contest comparing our president to your queen. His family probably takes more vacations (holidays for those of you in Rio London) in a year than the queen does in a lifetime. And his food budget probably compare to that of the entire British Isles.
And I think she pitches a baseball better,too.
Iceland stiffed the banksters - and only got away with it because they are too small and remote to do much about. If an EU country tries that, the banksters will demand - and get - military action against its government.
