The 1% Club Meet in Central London

Organisers of today’s demo put the number at 10,000, while the police say it’s more like 2,000. An attempt to expand the camp at St Paul’s down to Trafalgar Square was dispersed with short shrift. Back up the road there’s quite a gathering of speakers. Jet set multimillionaire Polly Toynbee, who owns properties in both London and Italy, addressed the crowd, while fellow 1%er and millionaire Billy Bragg provided the tunes…

But panic not, the former Viscount Stansgate, Anthony Neil Wedgwood Benn has taken a stroll down from his two million pound plus Holland Park mansion to give them a dose of reality…

UPDATE: Rage Against the Machine’s guitarist Tom Morello was spotted at the occupiers camp today. He’s worth $60m.
