I was in London yesterday. I don't go there often, its over 200 miles away, and I avoid the place when possible - its an absolute nightmare.
Didn't see any protests though - could be because our van driver avoided the very city centre due to the £8 per day congestion charge.
Traffic was considerably worse than I've seen it in the past however - I know it gets bad, but it took us over an hour to move little more than half
a mile down Edgware Road, which is very near the City.
I'm wondering if the 'congestion charge' is there to help prevent people like me, passing through London (I was heading from Northern England to SE
London, our satnav took us straight through instead of round the M25), from seeing such things like protests?
I've seen them around Parliament before, but never anywhere else. Which is odd, as thats the bit of London we avoided.
