No, they are on the publics side, if there is a report of someone carrying a weapon on the streets, the armed response will be called


when it comes to protests they tend to be the ones protecting the Government as is the way when you have large gatherings outside Government buildings also as if protests work any more.

As a side note when the coalition got in they said they were going to repeal a good few laws and legislations that they felt were unneeded and it seems nothing ever came of that so you could expect the same from Labour if they ever get in again.

Depending on where the protests are, and what the protests are about, and if there are two conflicting groups protesting at the same time, then yea they can be there to keep order if something kicks off, but you generally do not see any weapons on the streets unless there is a threat of weapons already there

I love the UK for that, yes we do get the odd shooting by some gun owner who loses the plot, or some gang fight, but in general, there is next to no gun crime here

Knifes yes

Well that wasn't the case with the Jarrow March which was a peaceful protest which when they reached downing street they were met with cannon emplacements despite them being unarmed and still nothing was done and i doubt anything has changed since then.

Seriously, a protest from 1936? That's hardly relevant now, I mean back then they used to shoot deserters and people who refused to join the Army.

As I said, "Depending on where they are protesting"

Of course they are going to be met with force if they protest on downing street, :/

it doesn't matter where it is peaceful protests should be done where they're most effective.

those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it it's because people put relevant by dates on events we end up seeing things happen time and time again.

I completely see your point, but when it gets to downing street, they can't take any chances, it could be peaceful as a ploy to get close to the PM

Imagine if they tried protesting at the White House, water would be the least of their worries ;)

Well if the PM(s) didn't over inflate their position then they wouldn't be at risk they're elected to "Run" then country not "Rule" it.

Agreed, but they do, and have always done, and no matter what they did, there would always be people who disagreed / wanted to harm them, so a heavy police hand is always going to be there

Gone are the days of a clip around the ear and sent home

I agree with mobile phone policy - to block it until you request otherwise. Except they block some odd sites too that don't need blocking.

So you're for against big government when it doesn't suit your agenda but when it's something you do agree with, you're all for it?

As Elizabeth Warren once said "Republicans say they don't believe in government. Sure they do. They believe in government to help themselves and their powerful friends. After all, Mitt Romney's the guy who said corporations are people."

Elizabeth Warren is an idiot. So is Mitt Romney. My point is the fact about porn. Porn should be done away with period. If you don't understand that, then maybe I should sign it to you:

I disagree, it shouldn't.

Free speech anyone?

You seem to be into protecting the constitution big time (which is good, but maybe I'm mistaken and you're not), why not protect that part, too?
