Don't like it? You voted for it.

And what's more, your unions are supporting it.

A poor repressed leftie in custody.

I've been rummaging around an amusing place called Socialist Unity, which is composed of wooly-hatted and wooly-brained people who like to protest about things, but don't want to get their hands dirty by actually doing anything. It's up to someone else to do the stuff. They just shout until it gets done.

At one of their shouting sessions in which they shouted about other people having money and not giving it to them, several shops were smashed and looted. Naturally, they didn't do it, it was 'pseudo-anarchists' (the socialist untiers are real anarchists, because they vote for and support this government. Don't ask me, it's their logic). Or maybe it was 'police provocateurs'. It can't have been any of their shouty friends because all they do is shout.

Anyway, the police rounded up a few of them and locked them away for a while. Outrage! Repression by authoritarians! Human rights! Toilets! Tea and sandwiches!.

Lois said: “I am angry and outraged at the Lords judgement, which found there was no ‘arbitrary deprivation of liberty’”. I and thousands of other peaceful anti-globalisation protesters were detained by police for nine hours, in a confined space, and without water, food or toilet facilities. To any reasonable person, this clearly amounted to a deprivation of liberty and the police action on May Day 2001 breaches European Convention on human rights”

No tea and sandwiches? Why, it was practically Auschwitz. Nine hours? Murderers get out in less time. The police would never detain an MP for nine hours... oh wait.

“The Lords have judged the police can take such draconian action, as they deem fit, against protesters. Since 2001, we have seen the police use similar detainment tactics against other peaceful demonstrators, including against environmental protests and recently against Gaza war demonstrators. These repressive police tactics are an attempt to intimidate protesters and the right to demonstrate."

Huh? No, no, no, Lefties. We are not a police state. You've told us so yourselves. Repeatedly. We're just paranoid, remember? Labour isn't out to repress us all. They aren't banning demonstrations. You just have to give the police notice, so they know where to find you when it's time to round you up.

“Our fight against poverty and exploitation continues, as does our campaign to have the basic democratic rights to protest.”

They are incensed that they can't protest. Whatever happened to free speech, eh? Whatever happened to the right to protest?

You did this, Lefties. You don't like it, do you? You voted for it and you support it with your union dues. You didn't think it would apply to you, you thought it was for the dangerous far-right groups like trainspotters and tourists. Now you're getting a taste of what your beloved socialism is all about, you don't like it at all. And still you can't see that it's your ideals, your policies that are at play here. This is socialism, Lefties. This is what it's like, this is what you wanted.

The lefties are furious. So they're taking their case to Europe, where they actually think they'll get their rights back.

I shouldn't laugh, but for some reason I find I just can't stop.

You bastard Leg-Iron. You weren't there man, you weren't there. I saw a lady who had to sit on the floor with only her yashmak for warmth and her lentil soup and soda bread for sustenance.

That's what gets me about civvies - you think you know what war is man, you think you know what pain is - you ain't seen shit. I was on point aiming for the high temple of capitalist indoctrination, McDonalds (Rodeo burger - £1.49) when the fuzz stormed us man with fists of fury and forms and stuff, and like questions man - you wouldn't understand, no-one understands.

Can we expect a large turn-out for a walk on November 5th?

If that's the demo I remember from the telly, it was the greatest bit of crowd control ever. Not because the police did such a great job, but because the weather was a tad chilly with touches of drizzle. It was the weather what did for them.

It's difficult rioting when you just want to get out of the damp and go home. Riots only work in the middle of summer when it's really hot and you've got sunburn on your neck and the alcohol goes straight into your brain.

In reply to Ex Liberal, nothing much will happen on 5/11 until they shift it to the middle of summer and this f***ing global cooling stops.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Love it, anyone got any numbers on the proportion of riot type behaviour between lefty groups and the right wing ?
I suspect that it is largly a leftist occupation so they are welcome to reap what they have sown.

Sadly I doubt if the wankers will ever realise the stupidity of their ideology.

I'd want prior warning for 9 hours without toilet facilities.

Failing that, Harriet Harman and a funnel.

Can't we organise them into a flying squad and send them somewhere really dangerous? And warn the Stasi they're on their way? And encourage them not to hold back with the baton rounds, water cannon etc?

Fucking useless the lot of them

They didn't detain the 3000 violent anti Israeli demonstrators in London the other weekend, did they? The 300 or so cops sensibly ran away when charged by the mob. This just proves that overwhelming odd and violence get things 'done'. Being meek and mild and just shouting gets you coralled into a street for 9 hours.
