Well, yeah. That is true but there is now an objective element to whether force is reasonable so they don't get to be thugs in uniforms if they fancy it.


as i say it isn't the majority.. i can't see a solution tbh.


Think that's one of the reasons for the use of body cams - it helps root out the bad apples.

Might have mentioned before that I read "Kill The Black One First" which is the autobiography of Michael Fuller who was the UK's first black Chief Constable. It's an inspiring story but mad what he had to overcome.

He's being portrayed as a victim because he may have suffered a mild dead leg at worst whilst resisting arrest.

I don't see that many condemning him for being there in the first place though.


Yes - that's strange isn't it?



I just heard that he wasn't part of the protest, he just went out to buy a lava lamp!

Yes, because Boris needs the backup, without the jeering from the numpties the head numpty looks even more incompetent.

but i feel those body cams they can talk there way out of certain things... i dunno
as i said i understand the stress police are under... i mean a bloody lockdown implemented by our government and this lot decide to protest, can you imagine.

yes the minority of police will use unreasonable force as seen on this occasion i do feel the fella was going for the oscar as the crowd & photographs turned up. :ooer:

no i don't recall you mentioning that... i will certainly look it up.

Must say it's not the same with just a handful of MP's there.

I wonder how many MPs will actually turn up for sittings?

I guess it's going to show who is really loyal to Boris on the Conservative side at least.

But it does show how incompetent he is, and how he blatantly lies. Shame it can't stay like it is for the foreseeable.

Sorry but as his No.1 fan I have to disagree with you that he lies and is incompetent.

Actually how is a full sitting supposed to work?

It's an awful example to set if MPs are packed onto the benches like sardines. Hardly a Covid-19 safe workplace is it?
