Listening to events unforld in Tahrir Square reminds me once again the topography of protest. Land use lawyers are only to aware how spatial the right to free speech is in practice, location is so often central to the message.
It makes me sigh inwardly to think again of the imminent eviction of Brian Haw from Parliament Square in London, who has been protesting there and survived various legal battles since 2001.
The Prime Minister David Cameron is apparently insistent that he will have to be moved by April after a decade of protest. Why? For the Royal Wedding, obviously. He mustn't spoil Kate and Will's big day. Sigh.
