Comments on: Is police action against protesters disproportionate? http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/03/23/is-police-action-against-protesters-disproportionate/ Insights from the UK and beyond Tue, 15 Nov 2016 20:30:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Andy http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/2009/03/23/is-police-action-against-protesters-disproportionate/comment-page-1/#comment-8164 Tue, 24 Mar 2009 09:20:59 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/uknews/?p=2195#comment-8164 The picture says it all and we’ve seen it all before. The rent-a-mob rabble are Labour’s natural allies and the police will be given orders to go easy on them. It’s only decent people protesting about real issues who get their heads cracked.

When it’s a “right-on” issue that fits with government ideology, such as hurling abuse at British troops, that’s fine. When it’s not, such as protesting against the ban on fox hunting, expect to get your head cracked.
