Workers Occupy in London

Inspired by the occupations in places like Wall Street, last night I finally picked up a copy of Occupy! A Short History of Workers' Occupations by Dave Sherry - an excellent little history of one of the most militant tactics of class struggle yet seen -only to read that, this morning - well:

Perhaps the slogan for November 30 shouldn't be 'All Out...and Stay Out' - but 'All Out..and sit in'? It would certainly enable people to keep warm...
