Women beaters -- a sign of civilisation...

I thought this was 'nice' to see the other day...
MET chief Sir Paul Stephenson this afternoon bowed to huge pressure and ordered a full-scale review of riot policing at the G20 protests.

It followed new images showing a sergeant striking a woman across the face with the back of his hand before hitting her legs with a baton.

The review of how large crowds are policed will be conducted by the Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Dennis O'Connor.

You just know you live in a civilised society when you see heavily armed men beating up women.

I think this places us just above Afghanistan in the civilisation league. Which of course is great news...

Gordon Brown and New Labour must be so proud -- they've built quite a country...

Note that a 'full-scale review' follows. Translation: a 'total information blackout' to allow everyone concerned to prepare their stories and consult lawyers and spin doctors.

Have you heard that two tourists had their photos deleted by the police this morning in the Grauniad

Shocking

The police state is here.
