They'll be marching past my office!

Is this an opportunity for some fun?

Just had a quick look. There's a fair few genuine seeming students about. The problems really began last time when the 'professional' protestors began to get involved. That and the fact that Police lost the plot slightly and allowed the mob to dominate the ground resulting in Whitehall getting smashed up.

I'm on a different job (Sarkosy Watch) today but we'll probably keep an eye out later when the real scutters have dragged themselves out of their pits.

I love this little story in one of the posted articles:

Anderson was expelled from school at 15, "without a single GCSE to my name", along with a friend. After a stint at a referral centre, Anderson managed to get his life on track through apprenticeships and college courses, and went on to study history at university.
Completely ignoring what they were expelled for, almost implying that it was arbitrary, but good on him for getting himself back on track after ****ing up as a kid.

His friend was not so lucky.

"Shortly after leaving the referral centre he began to involve himself with crime; street robbery, drug dealing, and even weapons.
NOT SO LUCKY!
Funny how these things just happen.

"The last time I saw him he was in a psychiatric hospital after being diagnosed with schizophrenia. To this day I wish he had been given the opportunities that many take for granted.
The schizophrenia is probably the result of drug use.
Oh and he had the same opportunities as you, he just didn't do anything about it.

"I often ask question how we ended up on such different paths," he adds.
I have an answer mate, and it doesn't involve the government but personal responsibility.

We picked up an ASP last year -it was in a holdall that came flying out of a looted Police van. My security bloke had it on him until our shift was up -when, unfortunately we handed it over to the nearest senior officer.

Marbles might shatter and cause cuts.

Ball bearings are far more in line with Health and Safety Best Practice.
I'd favour an air rifle loaded with a blue tack/swan vesta match head combo.

Chaps - I see a business opportunity opening here. Re-open St Angelo, bucket flights provided by a reputable carrier, maybe Ryanair, short bus ride to Ennisklillen in time for G8 summit, dropped off at an RV just a few Kms from Lough Erne resort. They can then stroll through the pissing rain and bogs, negotiate (unsucessfully) blackthorn hedges and arrive with clothes in tatters requiring medical attention for lacerations.

I reckon Gubmint funding might be available as some nitwit politician might be convinced that this "opportunity" would demonstrate our commitment to the democratic right to peaceful protest.

Of course, we'd need some pretty robust marshalls ..........

Worth passing out a few fliers today?

Try a short length of copper pipe and balls of putty, use it like a pea shooter. if you are above second floor level, you can get a decent range, and as there is no sound from it, people don't know where the putty came from. PS it stings like hell.

I saw an MG42 on a tripod modified to fire paintballs at an alarming rate on Youtube once, maybe that with some of those pepperballs would be good for an afternoons Tarquin hunting from the office window?

Well as its a lousy day in the smoke the weather is doing half the work for the Met's TSG.

Suppose its yet another thing on top of covering the Israeli Embassy & other duties.
