It appears a desperate move on the part of the British government. Control must be had!!

And in other news, seems that Malaysian police are seeing things the same way:

UK violence 'justifies protest ban'

A top Malaysian police official said Britain's riots vindicate the south-east Asian nation's efforts to curb street protests because they can turn into "nightmares".

Can you change the title off your thread. It is not the whole of Britain which is under this protest ban. It only refers to protests in England.

And only in London. Seems they where trying to dodge the EDL bumping into two other protest groups.
Even though a heavy police presence will most likley cause violence and uproar as they useualy do every time they turn up to a "peaceful protest".

This just shows the Tory attitude to the UK, "Save London, feck every other city"

This is the exact headline in the original news article (see Comprehensive 'Breaking Alternative News' Forum Posting Guidelines (Updated 4-15-11) ). I won't be surprised if / when it applies to all of Britain, will you?

No it wont, What happens in England does not effect the other countries.. She could issue an Order but the Administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland do not have to implement that specific Order.

So. Britain HAS NOT placed a blanket ban on street protests.

However, in order to stop a bunch of racist thugs holding a march in part of London, a temporary ban has been placed in 5 boroughs.

Not Britain. Not England. Not even London!

When do the Royals reassert their dominion over their subjects and convert everyone to Islam?

Multiculturalism; code word for "submit"
Coexist; code word for "submit"
Outreach, Dialog, Mutual Respect, Bridge Building; all of them code words for "submit"

Britain is submitting to Islam before our eyes. Soon it will look more like Lebanon and Albania than a proper civilized nation.

Who will be the new Islamic Spiritual Leader of this new muslim land?

If someone wants to protest they will regardless of any ban.

It just means they can't march, but they can still statically protest.

They are scared! They know that we know now!

From now on I guess we will see many more nasty little control tactics being imposed upon our FREEDOM.

They do all this stuff to us then when we react they do even more stuff to us! Simple as that.

The Controllers are just cowards. They have no honour atall. They shoot you in the back. Never a fair fight.

Just cowards!!!

In light of recent events it was to be expected in London. We shall see how that goes..
I'm sure if the pensioners have cause to air their grievance again, I doubt they'll be stopped at the end of the end of the day. They just don't want the likes of the idiots we saw in the Students Protest & looting incidents using some ones good cause for their own jollies and turning it into a # storm.

That's great! It's about time. The police are there to protect the people. Screw the rights of the gheto/welfare collectors! The most work they did in their lives was to loot and burn their own neighborhoods. People that feed off of society shouldn't have the same rights as the people providing everything for them! Like it or not thats it!

And this is ok? Who gets to decide which protests are "good" and which are "bad"?

Don't get hung up on the title. Did you read the very first sentence in the OP?

Can I ask why the dates from the 2nd September till 30th are there marches or demonstrations planned for all of that period?

Next will be a curfew, then demonstrations will be banned totally. If it were Scotland there would be a deliberate marched demonstration against the banning of marched demonstrations...its who we are.

I agree, everyone has the right to protest and no one should be able to tell them they can't or stop them. Full stop

The protestors in the OP are going ahead with theirs in London too. It seems that it IS happening in Scotland.

Scottish Defence League to hold static protest in Edinburgh after march banned

Anti-racism groups are mobilising a major counter-protest after the right-wing Scottish Defence League vowed to go ahead with a demonstration in Scotland's capital despite it being banned by the city council.

Councillors threw out the group's application last week, claiming they were worried about risking disorder and violent confrontations, despite police saying they had "no objections" to the march.
