I noticed page one of two in the link provided says "Financial Fools Day".
London is bracing itself for a week of protests ahead of Thursday's G20 summit.
Demonstrations – many of them expected to be violent – will take place throughout the capital, while world leaders meet to discuss the current financial crisis.
Protests begin on Wednesday with a huge anti-banker demonstration outside the Bank of England. The protest is set to begin at noon, but separate marches from four areas around London will start at 11:00 GMT.
In Grosvenor Square, anti-war demonstrators will protest outside the American embassy, while environmental activists will go to the Excel Centre a day ahead of delegates to campaign against climate change.
On Thursday, world leaders will arrive at the centre, while anarchists arrive at the east London area to try to 'knock on the doors' of the centre.
The Metropolitan police has drafted in some 3,000 officers to help police the separate demonstrations.
Ahead of G20 summit, council told to switch off illegal £15m CCTV network.
The 24-hour live footage from the cameras, which monitor roads around the West End, Belgravia, Trafalgar Square, Knightsbridge, Oxford Street and London's main bridges, is also accessible to police and the intelligence services.
A further 160 "permanent" CCTV cameras run by the authority are unaffected. However, security officials believe a shutdown of the mobile road cameras could hamper the G20 security operation, which will require police to secure the safe passage of dozens of motorcades carrying delegations VIP diplomats and leaders.
"Frankly, it couldn't have come at a worse time," a source said. "These are not just parking enforcement cameras, they're for public order and we've got the G20 world leaders coming. This is a complete disaster."
