        I bet many of the Mummies and Daddies of these demonstrators will be buying their dear little student kiddies, cars and a holiday to help them through the difficult times after all that hard work during the winter term.
        They are like many students and professional demo yobs, loud, selfish, stupid, self centred and in it for the violence to enliven up their boring little lives.

    A tiny glimpse into the difference between President Obama and our Prime Minister is available on the News – watch them return together to Number 10 – the President, all “hail fellow well met” goes up and greets the PC on the door and shakes his hand. Then the PM approaches and follows suit with some words to the smiling copper who then sticks out his hand, only for the PM to turn his back and walk on. A small vignette, but exactly why everyone thinks he is a c**t.

        they kept 1200 people captive for four hours at least. that’s 60 times what is legal. Reports indicate more than one person had to fake illness to be allowed out – with their frequent rushes in the face of no provocation the Police deserve nothing less the denouncement for their passive aggressive detainment and limitations of the size of the protest. It was a shameful charade made to quell dissent through sinister sheep herding tactics, and nothing about protecting property or people. So it ncost 20 million. put it on my expenses. you may as well just ban protest and have done with it. faggot.

Best not get too enraged though dears, apoplexy could well strike again and is so tragic in one so young.

      Non-government news sources have a somewhat different take on events:

      “The protester was understood to have been close to the police cordon at the Bank of England when he stopped breathing just before 7.30pm.

      Another protester raised the alarm and police crossed over to help him, but were targeted by missiles and forced to move him to a clear area in front of the Royal Exchange where they gave him CPR.”

        Shock, horror. Is someone trying to say that the protesters, those brave and selfless representatives of the principled elements of society and guardians of the weak, may have somehow *gasp* impeded the rescue of one of their own because they didn’t want to stop fighting the good fight?????

    Need you be reminded what happens other EU countries when protesters are killed either directly or indirectly by police.

    Yes, I’m crying a river for the man who has died in London on the street during one of the protests.

    Lawful force vs Lawful Protest. Discuss.

    Most people in the UK are not in the UK Police Or Army and don’t work for the UK state (though 1 in 5 do apparently). So my money is on the “most people in the UK” winning this one. They cannot all be killed for protesting.

      Quite right, Andy. If the two are linked and police action was the cause solidarity marches will be the result.

      Moscow, Paris, Athens….

      And all those on here who sound off like they are too high and mighty to back the real cause of today by mocking those who turned up…Up yours! You devious little Hunts will be on the scrap heap when the majority of the good take a hold.

      Ponder on that.

    1. Protesters Rock. They’re bothered to haul ass, spread messages, have fun and keep cool in the face of Police provocation and the enormity of their task. Anarchists of both left and right persuasions seemed to stay calm focused and on the main message: This thing we call money, is fucked, has fucked us too long and has to go. Money is a myth, an imagination of debt, no store of value, breaking down as a medium of exchange and making us ever more dependent and enslaved upon each other in devilish contracts, rather than the free trade of goods and services we have a government colluding with the worst aspects of free enterprise and spitting on the best whilst wringing it’s hands and promising to do more.

    Protesters stand up to that and say no. Fuck you. This is ours and you are wrong, in spirit – mind and being. Money can make you high in this world, it can let you travel, make and break laws, murder, buy and exploit people – but for all that – it doesn’t make you free… and it definitely doesn’t buy happiness. These people all knew that, and all wanted to do something about it, and tried to send a message to the leaders – that we are not dumb to their designs anymore. They rocked.

    2. Protests suck. Protests are dead. If it’s to be a media carnival – let it be our media carnival. The police have it fine tuned now, and they have managed to turn what was a fun, intellligent and peaceful show of dissent into a supposed carnage where: only a couple of windows were broken, one policeman and one protestor got badly bonked on the head – and a FUCKLOAD of people got the message: protest is dead. Why, because as I saw as I went to protest, but being fashionably late I couldn’t. Freedom of movement was dead. The protestors were made prisioners in their own protest event, and if you weren’t in the ‘main party’ of head boppin – you weren’t coming in sunshine. Oh no.

    Protests have become moribund and self deprecating. You can’t do anything but stand around and shout, maybe strum a guitar, show a banner, chalk up the pavement, or get rugby tackled – assaulted for using spray snow on the pavement to write “Love the police” and furthermore get questioned as to your political motives for doing so. Erm? What? Duh – it’s to say the majority of protesters like and respect the police and are grateful for their public service. They don’t like the enforcement of corrupt, venal and murderous laws against natural rights – to pen in those who are just desperately crying out for social change and being spun into monsters in the media or better still ignored… then you see… protest is dead. Protest events are the new order of things. And it’s a sad order, but from that at least I believe new and better innovations of pushing a better agenda for the real commonwealth of us all can come. Protests we never going to be the solution – they were just ventings of frustration often, but now frustration cannot be vented, even with the smashing of every bank on Earth it couldn’t – and a lot of people felt that today – and good change will come from that sadness and anger. So – Protest events? Let’s continue to try and make them better and, erm, get there earlier or schedule later? Like the day before? Or even after? ;)

    3. The Media Lie. I mean really really lie. The only ones rioting were not at all necessarily ‘mindless thugs’, or ‘hooligans’. They might not have even been anarchists who smashed the place up – but who cares? It wasn’t anarchists who alone wanted the banks smashed. It was socialists, capitalists, democrats and unaligned people generally unafraid to “think different” and come together to shout for a better deal. They smashed the bank because the bank had smashed their lives, their chance of freedom and self determination, they smashed it because there is no credit anymore – no goodness in the city and this society of men, simply bullshit and lies, politics of the imaginary, around the economics of reality. They smashed the Royal Bank of Scotland. They couldn’t smash – The Bank of England. They tried – and they failed. The old lady – the miser – the thief: Laverna who courts the worst of thieves, whores, and traitors to the common people – those whose only produce is money and the control of it’s flows and effects. That wasn’t reported. The fact these people were on the streets not to hate, not to beat police or smash property – they were there for you, for children both dying and unborn, they were there for themselves and the faint hope that we can be free and if we come together to solve the problems there’s no one who can keep us down.

    The Media Lied. They knew the intent and the message the protest carried, but engineered with police and the literal corallment, and then censorship of any protesters even being visable – but they got their footage, they got their three second clip of the iron pole going in. They got middle England tutting before sleeping, lamenting the young and their lack of love for Queen and Country. (O.K. maybe not the Queen) They couldn’t show the real messages being displayed on the streets, the lack of fear and awareness out there that there is something deeply evil nd wrong in the methods of our money madness… and that following the rabbit down the hole of debt, is just going to kill us all. But you didn’t hear that on the news – if you did – you might have said ‘blimey’ and had an original thought.

    And Mediafags don’t like that. You don’t get paid for that. Social media, underground media, alternative media… doesn’t matter shit. The literal airwaves are owned, the tubes are tied, and they definitely are checking your emails. But still, whilst they can operate, plot and collude against us all – and under Chatham house rules of silence and complicity assume their global brotherhood above our own – then we know they are wrong.

    G20 is leaders meeting to discuss world problems. Here today we now know: The fact they can, wish to, or do meet to discuss world problems, like they are at the G20 is the precise wellspring of the problem. Think Local, Act Global. Not Think Global, Act Local.

    There is a war on now. There is a revolution. There is hope of real change beyond obananaramaisms and snotty brown catchphrases. The fight is on in your own intellect, soul, and waking dreams. The weapon is your life. The ammunition is your spirit and strength of character.

    Don’t spend it all spouting and suffering. What ARE YOU doing? Hoons. These figures are fakes and the whole thing was a media farce. Grow up. You got trolled by the beeb. Guido got trolled by the refrigerator. You can admit you’re all wrong, can’t you?

    The BBC really are reprehensible gobshites are they not? Regarding the dead protester (regardless of your opinion on the protests) when the news broke last night he had collapsed and, while he was being treated, police officers were subjected to a barage of bottles. On their website this has now morphed into the dead man having bottles thrown at him THEN collapsing. Fucktards.
