The 1% club. It is has having a hard time.

Having been unwittingly on a number of demonstrations (G20 and Student Riots) it is pretty clear they are a waste of time. Even in Greece where the starving people (and tax inspectors) routinely smash a few things and complain vociferously, nothing is being done to respect the wishes of the people.

Wall Street is also a party place at the moment and Paternoster Square, the home of the LSE and Goldman Sachs is to be London's location for a bash the bankers demo. And it is being held on a Saturday when the "bankers" will be lording it up in their multi-million pound pads in the country.

Why bother? The regulators appear to be doing a better job at breaking the banks than a few protesters.
