With the American presidential race nearing its climax, and the Tory party conference bringing that particular political season to its end, the globe's leaders and would-be leaders have enjoyed significant laser focus from the world's media this week. Or rather, their spouses have. The saying might suggest that behind every successful man there's an equally successful woman, but in today's world it seems that behind every successful man, there's a woman whose dress sense/lipstick choice/career path (sadly often in that order) is to be analysed and debated across the political spectrum.

Arriving in zone one ahead of the union members, police outnumbered tourists on the streets, before the quiet gave way to the TUC-organised crowds, which numbered anywhere between 100,000 and 130,000 depending on whose calculations you want to believe. Thousands more congregated in Glasgow and Belfast. Support the march and the proposed strikes or not, the theme of Saturday's action - youth unemployment - is one that affects far too many to be ignored, and I'm not just talking about the million under 25s out of work.
