Do we live in a dictatorship?
November 28, 2010
At the same time the number of protests against cuts around the country by an increasing number of groups has risen dramatically including continuing protests against the tax evasion of £6 billion by Vodaphone and tax evasion by Chancellor Osborne of £1.6 million (latest, and rising HMRC estimate).
Yesterday myself and other disabled people attempted to join students, school children, and others ‘ School’s out children take to the streets’ (Guardian November 25th) at a protest in London, however we were refused permission to join this by the police who had kettled thousands of protestors in Whitehall. We watched school children as young as 14 or 15 being kettled, illegally searched and arrested.
Surely any government whose ministers can only sneak in back doors, who refuse to allow disabled people to legitimately protest and who feel the need to kettle children have lost any legitimacy to govern I’d therefore like to suggest that the Cameron and Clegg clones pack their bags and leave before they bring my country into a state of anarchy.
