Defend Churchill!

Even if he doesn't have a statue in Bristol

Who'd be a cop at the moment. Yesterday the BBC were criticising them for not arresting anti-lockdown protestors. Today they'll be criticising for attacking these protestors.

Well I've just told the rozzers off on social media for saying the protest poses a serious threat of Covid-19 transmission. That was their rationale for stopping it.

That's them told.

Both are equally non-risky for Covid-19 transmission, AD. However, the anti-lockdown protesters deserve a good thrashing for being selfish bastards (not for protesting, but for being idiots).

WEAR BLACK, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.

PHONE IN ITS FARADAY POUCH.

Who knows if a good way of warding off the virus is setting fire to a police van? Worth looking into.

#4 But they do, all these protests, pose a threat to the spread of Covid. People seem to think righteousness makes them immune.

One of the infuriating things during the lockdown is how partisan people have been about protests.

So, in here. Chucking statues in rivers, Reclaim the Streets and these ACAB protests are fine. But anti lockdown protests, they are bad and naughty spreaders of Covid.

All protests at the moment are selfish and risk spreading covid,regardless of whether they you agree or disagree with their politics.

Evidence, please

tasselhoff - 21 Mar 2021 22:02:19 (#11 of 452)

I can wait

Police attacked as 'Kill the Bill' demo turns violent

Hmmm.

tasselhoff - 21 Mar 2021 22:06:55 (#13 of 452)

That's what I thought at first. But it's about the draconian anti-protest bill, not the old bill.

Strange scenes in #Bristol. Police dog appears to be turning on his own officer and now some guy is giving the dog a slice of pizza

Tass groups of people mixing without social distancing or masks increases the spread of Covid. That's why it's not allowed.

If you are questioning this and asking for evidence then you are questioning the whole global lockdown.

AdonisBlue - 21 Mar 2021 22:10:19 (#16 of 452)

#13 Is that why I just watched a guy on the BBC news trying to burn a van full of coppers alive? I guess they were the ones trying to push through the anti protest bill.

TableTopJoe - 21 Mar 2021 22:12:48 (#17 of 452)

Don't harsh AB's buzz.

bossab2 - 21 Mar 2021 22:15:31 (#18 of 452)

There have been anti lockdown protests recently in various EU countries.

Nope. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/09

Confined spaces, poor ventilation, chatter. It's an overdispersed virus where the vast majority of transmission occurs in superspreading events with these characteristics.

This is not new.

What do they think this will achieve? Seems unlikely to win friends and influence people.
