"Exclusion zone" protest

Yep that is Lauren Booth (sister of Cherie Blair and Tony Blair's sis-in-law) with Brian Haw, the anti-war protestor who has kept a vigil outside Parliament over the past five years. Notice that guy with that nice shirt. (picture source: IndyMedia)

Tony Blair once (actually many many times) said that the great thing about this country is the people are allowed to protest (unlike the dead Iraqis). Now that right to protest outside the heart of the government has been taken away with the implementation of the 'exclusion zone'.

Sad isn't it?

More here. And here.

You would think in this climate of fear, the lawmakers would be requiring the police to assist in the current terror investigations. Instead they have them rounding up peace protestors.
