WARNING TO PROTESTERS

January 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

Cameron’s government invites us to share in celebrating their good news that the economy’s on the up and unemployment figures have fallen to just 7.1%. This in the wake of Osborne’s pre-election sweetener of an increase in the minimum wage. What rejoicing there must be at party headquarters! Yet only yesterday Chief Constables across England and Wales announced their plea for authorisation to deploy water cannon as a way of controlling street protests against “ongoing and potential future austerity measures”. How can this be, when things are going so swimmingly?

Meanwhile Boris Johnson has launched a consultation on introducing water cannon so that they can be ready for use this summer on the streets of London. It is no surprise that Boris is very much in favour. Londoners have until February 28 to contribute their views, if they should feel it’s worthwhile.

Water cannon have until now been used only in Northern Ireland. Theresa May is the one to decide whether that changes. Will she? What do you think?
