The wouldn't have needed to go to court as there is such an offence as Obstruction of the highway. As a leftie would you agree to the EDL or BNP occupying Albert Square? Have you actually ever been to a dictatorial state such as in the middle east or the communist countries. If you did then you would know what a police state is. Strange that lefties complain that it's a police state when the police ask them to move or stop breaking the law o are causing offence the large majority of the public yet when the EDL or BNP are in town demand that the police move them on and ban their marches. So why the double standards? Are you saying if you are left wing you can break every law in this capitalist country without any form of punishment but want those very smae laws you hate so much to be used again right wing groups to stop their freedom of expression? Please answer.
