A tale of two summits

The London Metropolitan Police seem to have been planning for a G20 summit that could end like the ASEAN summit in Thailand, abandoned today after protestors stormed the conference venue, forcing the leaders to be evacuated by helicopter.

But that's in a country reeling from financial crisis and with an unpopular prime minister operating in a shadow of a popular predecessor.
