Today I am going to DSEi which is a defense exhibition in London.
That’s defense as in military not as in self.
Anyway, I’ve got mixed feelings about it, on the one had I’ll be excited to see all the technology and to see where my company fits in the grand scheme of things. On the other hand I’m slightly nervous because there will be people protesting the event.
I’ve checked the protesters plans and they are peaceful, which is good. Personally I don’t think they could be anything but really, if you’re protesting agains violence and war then any violence on your part completely destroys your point. Ironically I completely agree with the protesters, the arms trade seem to be a bad idea most of the time.
Anyway, I’m hoping that I’ll see nothing of it, seeing as their plans are to chain themselves to the carriges of the underground (inside of course). Given the terrorist bombings of not so long ago, I can’t really see the police allowing people to hang around on the tube chained up for ages.
Well we’ll see, I’ll let you know how it went when I get back.
