I have never seen so many Old Bill in one place at one time until this morning. I was about to nip into Pret for my morning coffee, when about 15 meat wagons came past, swiftly followed by about 30 coppers on foot. Plus there was the incessant sound of helicopters in the sky. In my hazy pre dawn state I wondered WTF was going on and then realised our beloved ex PM was giving his spin, sorry version of the "facts" leading up to the war in Iraq. I wonder how much this protection will cost the tax payer.
Beats last saturdays turnout out side Kings Cross in the evening when there were only 10 meat wagons in attendance to ensure Leeds fans boarded their trains peacefully after their game at Tottenham. Would have thought it was most unlikely 100's would have rampaged towards Euston causing havoc and mayhem after getting the result they did. Imagine what the overtime bill was the met submitted.
