Wall Street domino effect hitting Britain

As the Arab Spring gradually reaches Britain, its domino effect will inevitably prevail in a Europe grappling with protests over government incompetence and deteriorating economies, a political analyst tells Press TV.

Reports say that ‘Occupy London’, a group inspired by the American uprising and mostly comprised of activists, will pitch tents in London’s financial district starting Oct. 15 in a symbolic move to protest the social inequalities, iniquities and injustice rife in the country.
