This morning I had one of those most enlightening conversations
which I tend to have with members of the Met Police Diplomatic
The conversation took place while I was picketing outside of the Japanese Embassy.
We talked about the long term effects of nukiller power.
All very much of a scary set of issues.
I also got to chat with him about the Plebgate issue,
and both agreed that the whole thing is very much blown up out of all proportion.
One point I did make to him on this issue: –
As an anarchist my sympathies are very much with the police.
I’ve always found members of the Met Police Diplomatic
Protection group to be very polite to me,
and why should they be any different while on duty at Downing Street?
Yet here is the bottom line: –
Plebgate revolves around the conduct of a tory politician,
who’s ever going to believe the word of any former Conservative chief whip?
I of course think that there is nothing wrong with being called a pleb, or one of the people, but elitist politicians do have a tendency to forget the people whom they are supposed to be
Enough said for now – – – – .
