Jussi October 23, 2019 at 8:21 am Nick Ferrari said this morning, lower figure for the recent two week period, higher is the total this year so far. Arthur the Cat October 23, 2019 at 8:27 am I doubt whether they’re counting, more a case of finger in the wind then double it. jgh October 23, 2019 at 1:56 pm “cost the police”? Well, if the police are paying for it and not the taxpayer, I don’t care. Jonathan Miller October 23, 2019 at 7:38 pm Simples. October cost £21M. Hence “protest”, singular.
