More irony

In the Queen’s speech today, a new “great repeal bill” was announced, designed, amongst other things, to restore the right to protest.

Meanwhile, in today’s news, anti-war protester Brian Haw was one of two people arrested by police, as they cleared the area in preparation for the Queen’s speech.. The other protester was Barbara Tucker, who was arrested when she pointed out to the police that they didn’t have cause to arrest Brian.

    As Marriott Edgar put it:

    And it’s through that there Magna Charter,
    As were made by the Barons of old,
    That in England today we can do what we like,
    Just so long as we do what we’re told.
