Ruined my sister's 70th birthday treat with my family all going to see West Side Story. Half them failed to get there in time. My brother was four hours late getting to SE1. All roads from Essex into centre were blocked off backing up to North Circular. So, were there really so many thousands of protesters that London had to stop moving for the day?
Closing any one of the Thames crossing points will always cause chaos. It's hard for me to understand why a protest march route requiring the closure of Tower Bridge was permitted. We were driving out of town to visit friends in Essex, and it was a huge pain... made all the worse by the knowledge that we had a mob of racist buffoons to thank for it.
