No, not this bit.
A group of around 20 men in traditional Islamic dress held up banners and placards that read: "Anglian Soldiers Butchers of Basra", "Anglian Soldiers Criminals, Murderers Terrorists" and "Baby killers".
As the battalion, which is nicknamed The Poachers, reached Luton Town Hall the small group shouted and yelled "Terrorists" and "Anglian Soliders Go to Hell."
Shouting a thte soldiers who have been risking their lives on behalf of the body politic is not what I mean by the best of British.
However, this is.
The protestors then had to be protected by police as angry supporters of the soldiers turned on them shouting: "Scum" and "No surrender to the Taliban."……Two lines of police officers protected the anti-war protestors from a large number of locals,
We are still a free country and we do still enjoy (however much some would like to take it away from us) the right of free speech. And the duty of the police is to protect the rights of the citizenry.
People shouting at soldiers have the same rights to such protection as I do if I were shouting "God Save the Queen".
That\’s the thing about civil liberties you see. They have to be extended to all, even to those you or I find appalling, disreputable or even disgusting. The whole point of them is that no one is beyond the Pale.
