Best place to plot a revolution
any McDonald's location

Planning a revolution can be a very time consuming ordeal. First you need to figure out what it is you're revolting against, then you need to plan out how you're going to execute your coup. Revolutionaries need a place to meet: somewhere seedy and dark where they can stew up their dastardly plans without interruption. Where better to plot than any one of the many McDonald's restaurants throughout London? McDonald's restaurants are the best places to plan a revolution for a number of reasons. First, they're cheap. Revolutionaries need to watch their budget - especially student revolutionaries. You can start planning early in the morning with a simple Egg McMuffin, have a Big Mac for lunch and still have enough change to treat yourself to a small cone for dessert in the evening. McDonald's will also help inspire your revolution. Nobody is ever going to suspect that people eating Happy Meals are also devising some nasty plans. Also, when you need to put a face to "The Man" you're revolting against, there's none better than Ronald McDonald, and his plans of world domination. Where better to plan a socialist revolution than the one place that represents capitalism at its most cruel. Vive la revolution! Various locations across London
