I don’t know why the police had to turn up in riot gear. This was nothing like the Brexit or BLM protests, there were families there, general Joe public, left, right, black, white, old and young. I didn’t see a hoard of thugs in any of the footage that I’ve seen. Granted, there will be some idiots in amongst them.
Another video was of a very well spoken 59 year old man that had been punched in the face by a police officer. The guy was with two females that I suspect were his wife and daughter.

 

Why did one of the protestors feel the need to wear a cricket helmet to the protest?Maybe there was a really heavy shower of hail stones forecast.

And at that time you'll see officers getting sprayed with a liquid.

Who knows what that liquid is.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m pro police and law and order. Like in every other business or institution you’ll get good and bad. I’ve never had a run in with the law and have friends in the police.
People that act in the manner in the link deserve to be locked up, but it’s way worse than the incident with the woman protester IMO.

I agree with that outlook regarding the police.

I've not seen the full clip of the woman, just when the officers are getting assaulted beside her when she's waving the selfie stick. Then when she is resisting the officers that are taking it away from her.

I don’t know who rattled your cage.

My mistake. I thought helmets complete with visor and neck protector, body armour, etc was classed as riot gear?
I never mentioned anything about vaccinations, or am I missing something. The protest I believe was more about the restrictions/lockdown madness versus the fatalities which in turn are taking liberties and freedoms away.

“Prouble” maker??? We’re you pissed when you wrote your reply?

 

On the video you posted that I saw, the police were largely allowing their faces to be seen, wearing enhanced PPE such as caps (albeit protective ones) rather than helmets and without the shields, shin protectors and other stuff that they actually wear in a riot situation but to address your comment, given the provocation and obvious concern on the faces of the police officers that things were threatening to get nasty, then they would probably have been justified to get the full kit on.

So since when is wearing protective equipment classed as a provocation?  (i'm guessing that is what you alluded to when you questioned the use of what you term riot gear")

Apologies for the typo, i'm guessing you are whiter than white

So, to summarise, at this moment they aren't, due to restrictions on tourism, not entirely much they can do about that.

It's not just London/Windsor that get tourists, Scotland does pretty well out of it in case you hadn't noticed. 

As far as I know they AREN'T still traveling around the world? 

I strongly disagree that these tours/visits could achieve the same via a Zoom meeting. :lol:

 

The likes of Edinburgh Castle and many ruined buildings related to Scottish sovereigns brought thousands to the capital pre covid without a royal in site. I'm pretty sure tourists would still flock to see the pageantry and the buildings without the substantially elusive royals residing within the fabric of the palaces and castles.

I believe their merit is overstated and, given their inherent flaws, are more bother than their worth. IF they're worth much at all.

Whiter than white, are you meaning in terms of contact with the law? If so, please see previous post

Today's student update, the "mental health" card being played.

It's the "go to" with people looking to make an issue when there is no issue.

Imagine all the people that had to shield, they must be superhuman to come through that. 

PS I must add some of the food being supplied by the universities shows that people running the university don't have a fecking clue.

The BBC jumping with joy that the world death number has surpassed 1 million.

Fortunately a doctor they have on right now is, rightly, pointing out the effects of lockdown restrictions are much worse.

Of course, 1 million deaths worldwide is a lot, but it still represents only 2.5% of the estimated 40 million people who have died worldwide in 2020.

Covid is just another thing people can die of, sooner we get used to it the better. It's still a long way behind other killers like heart disease, cancer and suicide.

Overall I agree but the main difference with the 3 other killers is they are not transferred from one person to another.

Covid should be much easier to eradicate, as other countries seem to have managed.

With massive restrictions on large portions of the worlds population from a virus that came from a few cases towards the end of 2019. 

Also I believe more people have died related to Covid19 this year (1 million and counting) than average suicide year on year (around 800,000).

What's with the chip on your shoulder over students?

And now you're attacking mental health as not a real problem?

You need to go and lie down I think.

Students are the headline news item right now, haven't you noticed?

Where did I say mental health isn't a real problem?

This is a common tactic from you, you change the direction of a sentence to divert from the point of the post.

Back to counting toilet rolls for you.

You're having a nightmare.

You try to be smart, and fail, when I point out the obvious from somebody else's post? 

Dear oh dear. 

PS Medical experts have made enough blunders throughout this mess, best to leave them alone, they're crying in their darkened rooms right now.

Oh dear, silly SNP MP makes a blunder. 

It's ok, the Bravehearts on here will just keep quiet, it'll go away. :lol:

AN SNP MP has admitted breaking lockdown rules by travelling back and forth between Scotland and London by train while positive for coronavirus.

The Rutherglen MP, who previously called for Dominic Cummings to resign over his Barnard Castle trip, has issued an apology for her actions on social media.

They get funding elsewhere now , not just forced from us . You need to move away a little from the telliesvision and get good at finding out things on your own instead of blindly following the narrative

But surely you are blindly following a narrative also then ? I tend to take a dialectical approach to truth.

Stupidity of the highest order.

She should resign, just like Cummings should have.

Maybe she should have lied and made up a totally unbelievable story that only complete halfwits would believe, to try and weasel out of it.
