Hmmm, great way to encourage political debate isn't it.
Channel 4 news reported that the elderly gentleman attempted to re-enter the conference hall some time later and was apprehended under the prevention
of terrorism act! Says it all really doesn't it!!!
Lauren Booth (Cherie Blair's sister) was interviewed too and said that she was shadowed by a rather large security guard after she made an off the
cuff remark about how she was going to heckle a speech regarding the Iraq war.
Oh, but the Labour Party apologise for the incident. Yeah, they are sorry they got caught on camera more like. As the reporter said, if a similar
incident had occured at, say, a CCP conference, the story would have been twice round the world by now.
And did anyone else hear that the leader of the fuel protesters was arrested under the prevention of terrorism act.
Freedom of speech...don't make me laugh!!!
Edit : 'apprenehended ' isn't a real word!
