London riot plans

Not too sure about the details, but I believe there was a sub- plot, with anarchists going to attempt to storm the embassy ?

Thank God that didn't happen........ the bloodshed with the armed soldiers inside, doesn't bear thinking about.
 
“Attention, Attention, this is a Police Warning, disperse now or Baton Tactics may be used. There will be no further warnings”.

“PSU draw Batons”.

“PSU, show of force”.

Batons to the high port. Round shields advance.

Long acrylic batons, not short little asp batons.

Still currently taught and practised with long and rounds shield mixed PSU.
I noticed a video clip earlier in this thread that portrayed a bunch of septic police officers on bikes using their transportation to push crowds back. Not a lot of good when a protester decides to knick your bell and you have both your hands full however a well oiled chain to the face might dissuade them.
 
Infrastructure? That's a bloody sofa. View attachment 388934
Hope they have done the manual handling NCALT course.

Oddly enough, I remember a night-time patrol competition where we had a burden to move a few km, with a stream crossing etc. The burden wasn't a concrete filled oil-drum, or anything similarly sensible. We had to move a three-piece suite, with cushions and footstool. Tricky with only six bods.

So much for being eco-warriors! Just look at the amount of single use consumables that take years/decades to breakdown.
 
I see that nauseating 16 swede Greta Thunberg is on TV pontificating about saving the planet again.

She’s on holiday on Switzerland...

I wonder if she walked there From Sweden to practice what she preaches?
 
The Grovesnor Square disorder was a serious wake up call for public order policing.[/B] I had a history teacher who had been Met, and spoke of officers arriving in black cabs due to the urgency for back up.


My bold but as usual the powers that be seemed to have learnt nothing as seen by police resorting to using dustbin lids as shields in the Lewisham riots in 1977, 14 YEARS LATER.

I don’t understand the point you are making.

"Boumer" was saying that the Grov. Sq. riots were a wake up call, if that was the case one would have thought that there would be specialised equipment available without having to resort to dustbin lids 14 YEARS LATER FFS.
