Welcome to the Police State:
Scotland Yard will consider asking the Home Secretary to ban further student marches should the levels of violence which have marred the recent protests continue, Britain's most senior police officer said yesterday.
Labour were bad on civil liberties. And in the wrong hands their legislation is being abused.
Goodbye to freedom of association and the right to protest then.
Except the truth is people will protest if they want to, whether the police like it or not — and nothing will stop them. Police states always fail in the end. But do we really have top test this hypothesis in the UK?
