I've been out most of the night enjoying some local hospitality so I missed the news, but apparently the BNP held a press conference outside the Houses of Parliament which was disrupted by a protest from a group calling itself "Unite Against Fascism" (obviously, they don't do irony).
What amazes me is that this group were apparently waving placards and chanting - which is fair enough as that is what protesters do - but I thought there was a law prohibiting protests within a certain radius of parliament?
As anyone knows, the Houses of Parliament is protected by a number of armed, uniformed police officers as well as a fair few of plain clothes milling about. It should not have been possible for this group to get anywhere near the Houses of Parliament with their placards - and on having done so they should have been arrested immediately.
The fact that they did get to protest where they did and that nobody tried to stop them tells me an awful lot about that protest - i.e. it must have been condoned by somebody in authority who feels they have the power to usurp the law.
That is more scary than any BNP press conference.
