Hello everyone: I am Olly The Octopus
Super Super; the ultra-hip trend magazine recently asked 'Is protesting cool?'

OK so you might have heard of me before...how come?
Well, I got on national News at 10 back in November when I hijacked Boris Johnsons first mayoral assembly in Bromley, singing my song Londons New Mare to a mortified, booing audience of Boris fans before being bundled out by the police.
