The following letter was handed to Arriva/Cross Country staff yesterday:

 

Whilst our Services are very unlikely to be directly affected by the event, (G20)it is possible that they will be used by passengers intending to to make their way to demonstrate in London.

Therefore British Transport Police are asking staff to report any sightings that meet the following general description of activities.

Groups of travellers wearing noticeable themed clothing, for example same large logo or coloured shirts etc

Any noticeable groups who are believed to be traveling [sic] to London

Any groups carrying banners or posters

Any group bookings to London that day/s

 

 

Is it really the job of Arriva staff to report on ordinary people going about their lawful business (as far as I'm aware it's not yet illegal to travel to London and take part in a demonstration)? :shock::shock::shock:

There could be a few empty seats at Wembley tonight. :lol:

I understand the police and reporters outnumbered protestors, there was even a small pro capitalism demonstration.

 

And taking on board Eagle's post, there was even a footy chant...as reported on the following link.

PS Alas as with all such demos, it has its nutters intent on running amok.

The Police tactics were interesting; IE; boxing in the demonstrators into a confined area, in order to prevent vandalism elsewhere. :? Fine, if that was the real reason, and they were allowed to leave in ones and twos under escort to their homes; BUT to coral them for hours, without basic facilities, is asking for them to kick off, AND perhaps that's what the Met wanted them to do? :?:wink:

In court yesterday for actions outside the bank were a 17yr old girl drunk on Special Brew, a 21yr old Lithuanian and two eighteen year olds. The father of one of the latter decribed his son as "a little kid who thinks he's a man, intelligent but with no common sense"

 

The quality of todays' anarchists leaves a lot to be desired. :roll:
