    BBC News - Protesters gather at Birmingham Bullring centre

    'Police said no crimes have been reported and the motive for the protest "remains unclear at this time". A BBC reporter at the scene said officers had separated the crowd into two groups.
    In a statement, West Midlands Police said officers "have no power to ban a static protest".
    "In fact the right to protest peacefully is a sign of a healthy democracy and we have a positive duty to facilitate that right." '

  2. They must want a new tv.
  3. Maybe some over- looked, shat- on minority are complaining about the lack of traditional fish n' chip shops.......

    **starts protesting in London**
  5. Panic was only temporary. Saw the post and rushed to the TV. Hundreds of Pakistanis attacking police and destroying property.
    '**** me,' I thought. 'Weather in Birmingham's not too bad. Keep going lads.'

    A mate of mine who "works" in London (he's an accountant - make your own mind up) has mentioned on FaceAche that there have been protests outside the French Embassy (presumably WRT the french satirical magazine's cartoons rather than the US video). Suffice to say that followers of the "Religion of Peace" (TM) may, or may not, have been involved.
  7. " fact we have a positive duty to facilitate that right"

    It is difficult to know where to start with that, it sounds odd, unless it is subterfuge to allow the Police to be on hand should any aggro start without sounding like they are spoling for a fight.
  8. Careful now mate, or they'll be setting a fat bloke on you.
  9. It's BIRMINGHAM. Literally nothing to see there. Sorry Brummies.
  10. Even if they trashed the place, who the **** could tell the difference in Birmingham?
  11. If a Scud was to land on Birmingham, it would cause millions of pounds worth of improvements!
  12. No point mate, we only have the chippys for the Northerners, us proper Londoners go for pie, mash and eels with liquor ^^
  13. Keith Vaz?
  14. Yeah nice one by your looks your a cockney fool. Same old jokes from the Man Utd/Liverpool supporting glory hunting southeners!!
