On Saturday I went on the TUC’s march for a Future that Works (stupid name, not at all catchy) and I’ve uploaded a few photographs.

None of them are very good because I did the short march for the crocked, which started from St James Street, and it took a long time for people to start forming up, and by the time they’d started and formed up I’d lost interest in taking photos.

Turnout was about 150,000 or so. Not as many as on the march in March, which was disappointing. But then I don’t think the big unions pushed it as much as they could have done. Our union really rammed it down our throats, which probably explains why there were so many of us compared with our size and so few of some of the bigger ones.

In other news

I’m carefully taking blood sugar readings every day at least once a day and so far I’ve come up with the following things that are reliably not good for me to eat:

Mashed potato
Cornflakes

This does make some kind of logical sense given what they’re made from. But why those two, when syrup filled flapjacks are (comparatively) fine. Must be the oats, I suppose.
