That's not a revolution
Firstly, this was in 2008, why are people only interested in it now?

Removing one political party and installing another within the same government framework isn't a revolution. We've had governments collapse in the past and that wasn't considered a revolution. Why in this case?

Nationalising the banks. Wow. That's unheard of. Except that we did it with Northern Rock, Lloyds, RBS, HBOS and I'm sure there were others.

Its viewing things through a particularly skewed filter to say there was a revolution over there. I was also there in 2008 and 2009 and at no point did anyone call it a revolution. You therefore have to ask what particular axe are the people writing that article grinding, and it looks like the same tired old anti-establishment tinfoil crap to me.
