Over a Million Demonstrators In London Today!

#1
The Headline we will not see!


Over a million people today descended upon London today to support Prince William, 2nd in line to the British Throne, on the occasion of his pledging his troth to the now Princess Katherine, in a splendid Christian ceremony.

The Metropolitan Police said that the Demonstration was expected to have such a turnout, and officers had been well prepared; leave had been cancelled, and all preparations made for possible incidents.

They said there were very few reports of any public order incidents, and the crowd were well behaved in passing this strong message of support to The Royal Family.

Simply that if, at the end of this year, "Demonstrations" in London were counted, it would be unlikely to include today.

Today is as valid a "demonstration" as any which has taken place this year!


If one extremist had performed one action, or if some criminal had dropped a fire exinguisher from a roof with a cause, the message of their cause would have made it to the front page tomorrow, regardless of the 999,999 others who did not, with their stated reasons in front of a huge audience.

Whilst I suspect you were looking for some hidden "go" at the police, as seems fashionable, if anything the contrary!

I guess the reason for the post is to question what the media mean by "balanced reporting", and my view is that true balance is rare.

It will also NOT be news that the Met handled a million excited people, told them how to get to where they could go etc etc.solved their problems of separated children, and controlled the surge to The Palace with expertise.

Did the Police try 'kettleing' today?

Also the presence of large numbers of Her Majesties' Armed Forces complete with bayonets can really keep the 'demonstrators' minds in the 'peacful setting'.

Pissed, sober or off his head on crack, Tom's got a point. Next time some lefty twat appears on the BBC to remind us that 200,000 public sector employees marched in London to protest about cuts to, err, public sector employment, I trust that Paxman will throw in something along the lines of "That's nearly 20% of the number that turned up for a wedding they weren't even invited to." (Except Paxo would get the grammar right 'cos he's been to Oxford).

Anybody know how many queued through the night to say goodbye to the Queen Mother when she was Lying in State?

HM the Queen says. She's a Duchess at the moment.
But one day, she will be Queen and her mother might go back to work as BA cabin crew ......

"This is Captain Jones welcoming you aboard the 0745 flight to Frankfurt. First Officer Smith will be assisting me on the flight deck while passengers will be served drinks and duty free by, err, The Queen Mother."
