I can understand how things can get out of hand or a few agitators can get the violence going but there is little doubt these people intentionally kicked it off with the police. I know a few of them got the shit kicked out of them and our right wing friends have made sure those pictures were posted on PR but so many of them attacking police officers I don't get it. i wonder just how many of them will be identified.

You do realise by the amount of Rangers tops on display you are seriously barking up the wrong tree.
I'm led to believe that is how they've been described. I don't know what Rangers has to do with it.

Rangers = staunch unionists. Which doesn't really comply with the insinuations Message has been making.

So many attacking 1/4 of the police officer that last weeks scum attacked.

Terrible people , but not so many to worry.

You've been saying all day there was 1/4 of the violence due to 6 police officers being injured compared to 24 with the BLM protest. That is absurd extrapolation and in any event it seems you got the number wrong
The head of the body representing rank-and-file police officers in England and Wales called for tougher restrictions on demonstrations after 23 officers were injured and more than 100 people were arrested during clashes in London on Saturday.

Rangers tend to ally more with English nationalism . They're anti Scottish nationalism.

Yes, overnight. You seem to struggle with the idea of updates. Or you’re being a dishonest tiny throbber.

I believe you Bimbo. However I don't believe you honestly believed such small numbers could indicate how violent each day was. Especially with the accuracy you repeated several times over the day. Either way you look at it you were making shit up.

There was an interesting article in a local paper about Baden-Powell, whose grave is in a small town called Nyerti north of Nairobi and something of a mecca for boy scouts. Locals here don't see what all the fuss is about, and will continue to “only speak of the rich values that Mr Powell taught us through the scouting movement”.

So he’s pissing on Parliament? Give the man a medal!
Yeah as much as the group he was part of is complete scum I have some sympathy for him as I sense he had no idea there was a memorial there and suspect if he had know he wouldn't have pissed there.
Indeed. He handed himself in. I reckon he’s mortified. :((
14 days jail.
A 28-year-old football fan has been jailed after admitting urinating next to the memorial dedicated to PC Keith Palmer, who was stabbed to death in the 2017 Westminster terror attack.

Andrew Banks, of Manor Road in Stansted, Essex, was handed a 14-day immediate jail term after pleading guilty to outraging public decency during a far-right protest in central London on Saturday.

The PA news agency reports that Banks said he had been on an all-night drinking session in the capital and decided to join fellow football supporters travelling to London to “protect the statues”, but admitted he did not know which statues.

He also said he had no idea about the memorial to PC Palmer, and handed himself into police when he was confronted by his father, who saw images of the incident online.

Jailing Banks at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday morning, Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot said:

I accept you were drunk and did not know where you were urinating. Your explanation is you had 16 pints to drink, you hadn’t been to bed, and a group of football supporters were coming up to protect the monuments.

The irony is rather than protecting the monuments, you almost urinated on one. That was more by luck than judgment. You showed no respect at the time for a man killed while protecting the Houses of Parliament.

I expect Boris will see to the inclusion of moments of pride in British history presently airbrushed from our Migrants' test.

This only covers abolition and the Emancipation Act 1833 but modestly omits Britain's pre-eminent role in the slave trade. It further omits the pride we still took decades after abolition by erecting statuary to philanthropic 'traders.

Such as Colston who had so generously shared a portion of his profits earned on the backs of slaves in charitable works back in Britain in his hometown.

They will if someone gives him up. Hopefully they will find a clear shot of his face. I'm sure there will be a gallery of offenders available soon.

Yep, so would I. Jail time for a poorly judged piss is very harsh, regardless of circumstances.

That prick and his mates in the park on the other hand were off the charts and will hopefully be identified.

16 pints is serious going. Thats over 9 litres, his bladder must be f**ked.
