    Amazing how far and how quick an event so small travels! Guess it must be because of all the media play it got here from the get go.

    Seeing as the poster you quoted was claiming the person in question was a bloke when it was actually a girl...
    Just goes to show you can tell fuck all from a photo.
    Reign it in :)

    A warning in the Independent that the polis could use last night as an excuse to preemptively arrest potential protesters before Thatcher's state funeral:

    From Billy Bragg, Canada, on the death of Margaret Thatcher:

    This is not a time for celebration. The death of Margaret Thatcher is nothing more than a salient reminder of how Britain got into the mess that we are in today. Of why ordinary working people are no longer able to earn enough from one job to su
    pport a family; of why there is a shortage of decent affordable housing; of why domestic growth is driven by credit, not by real incomes; of why tax-payers are forced to top up wages; of why a spiteful government seeks to penalise the poor for having an extra bedroom; of why Rupert Murdoch became so powerful; of why cynicism and greed became the hallmarks of our society.

    Raising a glass to the death of an infirm old lady changes none of this. The only real antidote to cynicism is activism. Don't celebrate - organise!

    I've been told that all police leave in London has been cancelled for the funeral next Wednesday.

    was whoever told you a) honest, b) in a position to know, and c) have they been right about similar things in the past?

    I was told in good faith through someone I worked very closely with in the past and still see from time to time, so while there's always a chance the information could be wrong, I don't have any reason to doubt it at this stage.

    Clearly I'm not going to say too much about where this has come from, but the person who told me is certainly in a position to know.

    They mentioned it on telly last night. Newsnight I think.

    Vice magazine article was unsurprisingly sneering and patronising. Serves as a good reminder of what utter pricks they are.

    The phrase reported widely last night was "no further police leave will be granted", which is a bit different - but you can see how someone who was imprecise, either constitutionally or through annoyance at having failed to book time off for the kid's birthday, would conflate the two.

    Some more beauts, could read these idiots all day

    people forget she stood up to argentina who tried to take our land from us

    "Love it! Agree completely with that description of those morons. The photos of this lot celebrating last night in Brixton say it all. Bunch of dirty, ugly, sad, no hopers in life. Probably mostly Urban75′ers from the look of them..

    Have to say urban has a much more intelligent and erudite quality of posters

    I've read that and really don't understand their justification for singling out of Barnados amongst a high street of mobile phone shops and corporate chains. On the whole they do amazing work. They have taken the view that their primary concern has to be the welfare of those already in detention and I'd be pretty surprised if they chose to abandon those currently in the hands of G4S in order to make a point against the principle of their detention.

    It is not as if Barnados is not prepared to speak out against the PDA. Their chief executive:

    Definitely not worthy of smashing up shop fronts (and looting if that occurred) and any message they claim to have been trying to make is lost in the occasion. Stupid little twats.

    It's a shame that the remarkably gentle TSG weren't interviewed. They could explain that 99.9% of the partygoers were peaceful and law-abiding. As with any street party a handful of opportunist miscreants will use the crowd as cover. But tbh the Thatcher death party was no different to a royal wedding street party. Try explaining that to the Daily Mail. :rolleyes:

    I thought the TSG psychology was quite clever - officers in shirt sleeves, lots of small females in the front line, not a shield or baton in sight. They couldn't have been less provocative. They allowed a couple of dozen people to block a major arterial road, holding up all the buses for over an hour. They could have cleared the road quite easily but they let everyone have their fun, and there was lots of friendly chatting between officers and partygoers, big smiles everywhere you looked. It was all very carefully managed by a superintendent. Couldn't have been more different from the G20 with that brute Delroy Smellie. Anyone know whether this is a new policy? agricola?

    Hi khristian, only uninformed or biaised people rejoiced, most people who hated her were workshy, lazy individuals who tried to hold our country to ransom through strike action. Basically communists, they are entitled to their opinion, but it shows the sort of people they are by doing this on somebody’s death……..a pictuer paints a thousand words. I am poor also by the way but don’t blame thatcher, i blame the breweries ha ha

    :D :D :D

    Whoever rearranged the Ritzy lettering is a genius and deserves an OBE. Shame we can't put him forward because that would result in adding him to the Police list of "people to be arrested just in case."
