More heavy handed Policing

The Metropolitan Police seem to be very proud of the fact that they are arresting loads of people outside the Olympic Stadium as this recent tweet indicates:
We are currently arresting a large number of people as a result of the cycle ride.

It will be interesting to see how the mainstream press will report on this.

Wow, anonymous troll has to trawl back 28 years to have a dig. Must be a record!

What did you do in the miners' strike "scargill"? If you were active in the local miners' support group, I'd know you.

I policed Point of Ayr pit for 6 months and then 6 months covering the old Bromfield section of Wrecsam whilst others went on mutual aid to Orgreave and other such places. Sorry to disappoint you!
