      Kill the bill... stop the steal... what next for mindless idiots. I'm willing to bet 99% of the protesters don't even know what is in the bill that passed in parliament.

      What's your opinion on the contents of the bill then?

      I don’t have one because I don’t know what is in it.


      Somewhat ironic you're calling the protestors ignorant then isn't it? Perhaps 99% of them know 99% more than you about it.

      I think you should read it. If you care about democratic protest at all then it will worry you.

      I’ll stand by what I said about 99% not knowing what’s in the bill thanks, I have no reason to read it, apart from 76 mp’s voting against it, it was voted by all parties. Why would a temporary bill that is thought necessary in a pandemic worry me?

      I try not to be offensive or rude here but wow, really? You're making sweeping statements about 99% of protestors, equating it to f**king Qanon, and you don't think you should even read a summary of the thing? How can you possibly pass comment on something knowing so little about it?

      It's not temporary, and it's nothing to do with the pandemic. Supposedly brought about by the extinction rebellion protests in London.

      Below is a summary I just looked up.

          Changing sentencing rules so that serious criminals spend more time in jail before they can be conditionally released

          Judges will be allowed to consider jailing child murderers for their entire lives

          Maximum sentences for low-level assaults against emergency service workers doubled to two years

          On terrorism, the bill creates powers to more closely monitor offenders released from prison

          Community sentences for less serious crime to address underlying problems in offenders' lives

          Changes to sexual offences law to tackle abusive adults in positions of trust, such as sports coaches and religious figures

          Change of powers to protest.

      Police chiefs will be able to put more conditions on static protests.

      They will be able to:

          Impose a start and finish time
          Set noise limits
          Apply these rules to a demonstration by just one person.

      Nothing really worries me as you presumed.

      Some of that is obviously fine, but if you read the bill itself you'll quickly realise that it gives the police powers to use at their own discretion (and we know how they're all so good at that) to decide themselves if a protest - which could just be a single person - should be deemed a 'public nuisance'.

      Not only that, but it'll become a crime for protests not to follow restrictions which they don't know about, even if they haven't been notified by a police officer.

      The ambiguity of the language and the possible interpretations thereof are what worries me.

      I can see I won't convince you, but I believe the protests are justified.

      A big hit on the skull, a litre of whisky, electric shock treatment, a lobotomy. All of them have been known to reduce worry.

      Wondered when you would go on the emotional rampage. Everyone including the police should be held to account for their actions. I’m only talking about the mindless idiots who turn up just to cause as much damage as they possibly can. Those people don’t care about anything as long as they get their excitement.


      Typical shithouse response along the lines of Toby Young, Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson!!

      Internet use in the UK


          92% of adults in the UK were recent internet users in 2020, up from 91% in 2019.

          Almost all adults aged 16 to 44 years in the UK were recent internet users (99%), compared with 54% of adults aged 75 years and over.

          While there has been little change in internet use for adults aged 16 to 44 years in recent years, the proportion of those aged 75 years and over who are recent internet users nearly doubled since 2013, from 29%, to 54% in 2020.

          6.3% of adults in the UK had never used the internet in 2020, down from 7.5% in 2019.

          The number of disabled adults who were recent internet users in 2020 reached almost 11 million, 81% of disabled adults; up from just over 10 million (78% of disabled adults) in 2019.

          London continued to be the UK region with the highest recent internet use (95%) in 2020, while Northern Ireland remained the lowest at 88%.

      Maybe they should of pushed Trevor Hicks harder back onto the Leppings Lane while telling him to "shut his prattle"

      Lets ask Ian Tomlinson's family who was a homeless person hit hard by Police who mistakenly had him down as a protestor in London a couple of years back and killed.

      "Bad people in every profession" the go to words for any weak defence of the police f**king up.

      That's an awful lot of bad people in The Met then!!

      Add to this what someone from the Met told Richard Okorogheye's mother when she first reported his disappearance: "if you can’t find your son, how do you expect police officers to find your son for you?" She had to formally identify her son today after he was found dead in Epping Forest.

      Don't like Starmer, but I'd end up chinning that landlord if he screamed like a bi*ch like that to me. What an utter gobs***e.

      Got this from Redcafe. I kinda liked the early years, he could have been a great manager for us. I stopped watching after they covered the Aberdeen years without mentioning the sound thrashing they recieved from us and thus birthing his hatred of Liverpool.
      Ultimately he was a bit of a child.
