Zombies for change

London really embraces Halloween. Walking down the street after dark you can find yourself chatting with anything from a witch to a werewolf, usually covered in enough fake blood to make a butcher squeamish. Last night I tracked down these creatures in Parliament Square outside Westminster, which they call "Zombie Parliament - Home of our Undead Democracy".

No... they are not there to meet up with relatives. They were there as part of the Vote for a Change campaign, which is calling for more accountable parliament with a referendum on the voting system.

You get all walks of life in London, and walks of the dead too! That's what makes London so brilliant!

What a brilliant idea. Hope they got loads of other publicity too but your picture will certainly be one of the best.
