    It looked like an amazing event in London, hopefully we can have similar events throughout the UK. Also repeat them over and over again. I am gobsmacked and in total disbelief the news media of this country failed, in what I presumed is their job. That is record, commincate and visulise current news affairs to this country. An event like this should have been on all the news bulletins. I guess they need to be given a jolt, hopefully with more attending and more complaints they will get the idea
