Prosecutor Michael Mallon said Banks, a Tottenham Hotspur fan, was in central London to "protect statues", but admitted he did not know which statues.

Moron grin

I absolutely believe that and that he had no idea who PC Palmer was

the bigoted and the brain dead ,the chant of "we're racist and we like it" turned my stomach .Sadly Glasgow was filled with the same eegits yesterday although the "news" showed them standing around statues behaving themselves video from passersby show a very different scene of a huge police presence and running battles .This is not acceptable .

Wonder if any of these morons have heard of William Wilberforce either?
Right wing yobs in Newcastle allegedly there to protect the statue of Lord (Earl) Grey - he who’s Government brought in the 1832 Great Reform Act which abolished slavery. Probably one of the last monuments to attract any sort of vandalism?

Unfortunately the Police got the brunt of their disgusting behaviour whilst keeping them apart from the BLM protest.
Police officers, horses and dogs hurt.

Sadly, the thugs who arrived in Glasgow had no intention of understanding the deplorable situation of racism. From my understanding re an article in The Herald it was more to do with the ridiculous religious nonsense we still have to endure by a certain section of society. Same old same old!

That cretin had apparently had 16 pints of beer that day. Scum.

Excuses for a punch-up. They haven't got a brain between them.
