Obviously the BBC interviewer/presenter had his script written by the Metropolitan Police - he refuses completely to engage with Jody.

Good man Jodie, a great performance. I wonder does the news-model presenting the programme consider himself a journalist. "Were you rolling towards the police"?

Pathetic

It is. He makes the case - shocking incident. Interviewer so cleary primed to rubbish him and exonerate police (but fails).

Put this story of violence on a disabled man with the story about the 12 year old boy in Witney threatened with arrest by special police for organising a protest to save his youth club, and the policing of legitimate dissent in the uk is turning an even more sinister corner

Yep! There appears to be a lot of people who believe in the "appalling vista (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham_Six#Charges_against_police_and_prison_o fficers)" concept when it comes to the operation of the State. The news-model was just terrible though, like it was an impossibility that the police could commit a brutal act.

17 year old girls hit on the ground with batons. The were kettled, phoned the Met to ask how they could get out and were told to go to the front, to the police lines, where they were beaten up by the police.

"We were right at the front. There was a huge crowd behind us so we were pushed forward. There was nothing we could do about it.
"They [the police] saw us coming towards them, these teenage girls who wanted to go home.
"They didn't show any mercy whatsoever. They threw around my friends who were just 17 year old slim girls. They were beating my friends with batons.
"They didn't show any sympathy in their voice and I didn't see anything in their eyes.
"It was awful. I've never experienced anything like it."


In the low wage economy planned for Britain, a large, educated middle class is not a requirement.

Saw that interview... full marks to the lad in the wheelchair. Oh, it just makes me so angry. Tories... urrgghh. They're making FF look like the Radical Communist Party. 9000 vs E2000; I rest my case.

And all the %$*$*%$*^ meedja over there could do is blether on about Charles and Camilla

Oh, it's still so much nicer to be a citizen than a subject!!! Even if we are in meltdown....
