How long can the lib/cons let London be held hostage by law breaking punks? I am a fan of the royal family (except Charles and the pit bull), but what happened to them cannot be allowed to happen again.  Prptests and demonstrations should be restricted to designated areas like parks, but not allowed to disrupt the general public.  As we experienced during the G20 in Toronto all protests are taken over by those out to cause shit or just have fun.

Dan, not offensive at all. Sounds frightening.

Richard, I remember the chairman of Boots saying that a History degree was the best general qualification for management. I also remember a friend who did Ancient Archaeology who beat all his fellow accountancy students to a job as an accountant! The accountant told him that he didn't want people who had studied accountancy, he wanted people who had been trained to think. The main thing university did for me was expose me to brilliant minds, discipline my thought processes and teach me how to communicate efficiently. Skills that are transferable to any walk of life. In my case it gave me the tools to manage big projects, that wasn't what I had in mind when I started!

Herb, unfortunately if you have a situation whener people feel that have to protest you will always get the infiltrators who go just for the violence. Terrible I know but it's one of the prices we pay for the right to protest and have free speech. It's as difficult for the police as the peaceful protesters.

 But I bet the majority of the people on the staff were Accountants. You can only get away with that approach when you do have the correct experts also in place.
It is called Teamwork !!!

Herb
Looks like the Police and Goverment have said enough is enough. I do believe that the next time round. No one will be allowed to cover their face with a mask, or they will be arrested. Peaceful protest will be allowed but it will be controlled. I heard a student leader complain about kettling what else was available to the Police ?? Did the students think that the Demonstration should have been allowed to continue and wreck the Parlimentary Buildings. School children should be at school, if you take your child out for a holiday you are liable to procecution. If you let them riot that's OK !!!!
Labour have to carry some of the blame for this. Ed Milliband has said he will join the protest,  mmmm not a very good lead.
No one seems to see we are broke we have no money. I heard one Liberal say " we should go into the next election with a committment to abolish fees" I am still ROFL
The Liberals should be honest if your a closet Tory come out, if your Labour do the same. But you can't be everything to all men, Coalition Goverment looks doomed, and so does AV at least with first past the post you know who to blame.
I watched a student leader complain about Police Brutality the clip went on to show the Police Line being charged by protesters with metal railings, funny thing thing this brutality, it seems it is only a one way street.
If the students keep this up looks like a lot of Thirds will be in the offing, one student I know told me he is to busy with his essays to become involved.

Frank with the G20 this past summer, a fortune was spent on security, a wall was erected around the meeting areas and large numbers of police on hand.  The black clad trouble makers (who travel the world to oritest) ran rampant on the first day.  Police cars were burnt, shop windows broken, and coffee shops trashed, some 900 were finally arrested when the police finally took over on the second day.  Now the media are trashing the police for illegal activities.

This brings to mind the chap who got $319,000 awarded by the court, this week, because Bombardier refused to train him as a pilot.         OH THE REASON WHY...BECAUSE HE IS ON THE TERROR LIST.  Bombardier should obviously have trained him with the hope of selling a replacement plane after he crashed!

We are living in a mad world! Herb.

I agree with Stanley re the infiltrators.. i would go further and say some govts would have paid for infiltrators to turn a peaceful demo into criminal activity as it would have discredited a powerful voice against them...not our govt eh?Wink

We've had anarchists stirring things up for centuries but now it's got much easier for them with mobile phones, mobile internet and email to the extent that it's almost counter-productive to try to organise a peaceful protest on the streets. I suspect there was someone who saw the royal limo and spread the word widely so that others could track it. They would soon find out where it was headed and mobilise thair foot soldiers to gather in a convenient spot to ambush it.

Seems to me that the security personnel who are paid to look after the heirs to the throne were severely lacking on this occasion. The limo they were travelling in was not suitable transport for starters. It was a vintage car that was not bullet/bomb proof had limited manouverability and was being driven with the rear windows open!!!

The choice of route was stupid to say the least. Looking at the map that they showed on the news last night showed numerous other routes that they could have taken in a far more suitably equipped vehicle. Under the circumstances with a mass protest on the streets, darkened windows on a modern fully security enabled limo on a clandestine route with ingognito passengers would not have been out of keeping.

The report said that the personal body guards of the prince were "within seconds of drawing their weapons". Properly organised using up to date vehicles and intelligence should have ensured that they were never put in that situation in the first place. Granted there were factions on the street that almost certainly had nothing to do with the legitemate demonstration but the security forces should be able to deal with issues such as that as a matter of course.

Our press is so free that it controls the politicians.


Every silver lining has a cloud.

It did strike me that if they'd been in a closed van nobody would have bothered them....

I Wonder .....!

There have been some quotes on this post that have been at best uninformed...."law breaking punks " springs to mind , and a statement or two  about numbers of people bent on violence .......At distance and with only press reports to go on , none of us is in a position to know.

The fact of the matter is that an election manifesto statement has been reversed....and a great many people are VERY ANGRY INDEED.

What did our elected representatives expect . ?...I'm guessing that this is just the beginning .

It might be time to remember that without  the support of the likes of Vince Cable, the heirs of Margaret Thatcher would not be in Downing Street  today at all .......And he has NOT covered himself in Glory. (he will  have to answer for his actions at the next General Election , which could come sooner than we think !)....

As for Charles'  PROGRESS to  the London Palladium ...... Orchestrated ambush  and attack ?...I don't think so !...

An opportunity to show those who are out of touch with reality , what anger there is among people who feel betrayed  , more like....

It WAS the West End  (not a large place by any means ) ...and there WAS  an enormous protest going on within a mile ..."Asking for it " is my view..
