Just as nothing can shake my lifelong belief in democracy like a trip to the polling station, so pictures of goofballs like this make me understand why this wasn't passed unanamously.
The strange man apparently has no ear for irony.
There's a serious point, although maybe this irony-bypassing man doesn't make it in the best way. Parliament passed an Act last year which denies people the right to protest within a square kilometre of Parliament without obtaining prior written permission from the police. The Act was essentially concocted to get rid of one man. It does, however, mean that the ever-amusing Mark Thomas gets to organise <'mass lone demonstrations' to protest against it.
I would describe him as the "occasionally amusing but mostly tediously worthy Mark Thomas".
I saw him perform in Cardiff a couple of weeks ago and would say that, on the contrary, Thomas is notable for his non-preachy, blokey non-worthiness. He did go on for some time, though: including the interval, three and a half hours.
