In case anyone were in any doubt of the regressive nature of current British policy, one of the more arresting images from today's protests in London. What better image of the desperate striving for an idealised past than the spectacle of some twenty policemen, riot shields strapped to their belts, all stationed to protect a clock which runs backwards? The backwards march of post-history must be protected from the dreams of rioting futurists!
