At the bottom:

"It happens that the Lord Mayor's Show, in which the Corporation flaunts its ancient wealth and power, takes place on 12 November. If ever there were a pageant that cries out for peaceful protest and dissent, here it is."

"Wouldn't it be a shame if some protestors showed up and peacefully spoiled their pretty parade?"
