Protesters are taking action against cuts to library services:-

At least 80 events will take place tomorrow, with a roster of notable authors coming out against the cuts, which now threaten more than 400 libraries across the UK

When did libraries become something that needed to be defended? Surely the value of access to free literature and knowledge is beyond dispute? Only an utter Philistine would consider cutting libraries…

…but then again, look who we have in power. In a few year’s time the population will be so dumbed down that the only reading material of any significance will be the Sun. It would be good for Rupert Murdoch and the Conservative Party, but terrible for everyone else.
