The 4.45pm Link

Personally I think there is a legitimate distinction between the right to protest outside parliament and the right to camp outside parliament, and to that extent Boris is right. But here is an alternative view from The Curmudgeon:

  1. Agreed. Those who started partying in Parliament square, not in the House of Commons on subsidised booze, have really messed it up for brian Haw.

    Where is he now, what ha-ppened to his protest, has he gone back up north?

  2. The last I heard, Brian was “safe, and back in the tent” after his arrest some weeks ago (thanks, you know who you are!).

    According to the Guardian article linked from The Curmudgeon, Boris’ court order does not affect Brian Haw.

  3. I was just going to say, “This is what happens when you join the libs just before they join the cons”

    But then I thought it would be bellow the belt.

    So I wont.

    Instead I will say, if camping outside upsets the Zionist bastards in parliament, if it upsets their warmongering and whoring to America, than I give my full support to the peace camp and call it free expression and what people I have never heard of or will ever care about died for.

  4. Viva the camp, down with Liberal Demonocrats!

  5. Disturbance in the force.

    Tony Blair awarded $100,000 Liberty Medal for “relentless pursuit” of peace in Northern Ireland and the Middle East

    “I guess Tony Blair won this for his success in helping to liberate souls from the earthly existence.”

    “For the politicians and pop stars and church leaders and polite people who believed Blair and British treasurer Gordon Brown when they declared their “great moral crusade” against poverty, Iraq was an embarrassment. The killing of more than 100,000 Iraqis (by US gunfire and bombs) ?” a figure reported in a comprehensive peer-reviewed study in British Lancet medical journal ?” was airbrushed from mainstream debate.”

  6. These people have to keep reinforcing each other’s legitimacy or the whole house of cards would come tumbling down. That’s all it means. Nothing more, nothing less.

    QED. Or as they say in Belfast “Pro Tanto Quid”.

  7. Thanks Polo – I am feeling better already.

  8. Now we have spam bots and cookie chasers on here as well, not just the Larry family, whatever next.

    Thanks Clark for letting us know, I have a lot of sympathy for Brian, I think we should propose him to get a Nobel peace prize. Thing is he would probably reject it, because he would not want to be seen in the same company as Kissinger et al.

  9. A week’s stay of execution. Plod will return.
