Just to confirm @Embattle - that "like" regarding Tories criminalising peaceful protest - that's not, you know, "you like these new laws" is it?

Well lets keep this to a single post because we've had this debate not that long ago but just to be clear, a lot of people won't consider it peaceful protest and thus because the nature of the protest has changed so does the law need changing. Yes I realise you believe it is so lets not waste our time trying to change each others views on the issue with you posting loads of replies and me getting a sore finger from clicking the disagree or assorted other ratings.

I figured as much tbh. Peaceful protest is, by definition, Nonviolent Resistance - so your very definition of peaceful protest is fucked up m8.

These laws are designed to neuter the already largely ineffective means of protest we have remaining to us.

The only effective means of protest is money, which we don't have anyway, so nothing changed because we still get bugger all

How is money a protest? Witholding it?

I'm pretty sure Mandela et al weren't rich. Or the Suffragettes.

Either way it's by the by. The science was done a long time ago - only violent action regularly gets results - so I'm hoping these protest groups start ratchetting up the pressure - if we're going to burn our planet up, lets at least be interesting about it, show that some people get it.

Absolutely there were rich women pushing the movement (IIRC it was started by a man) - but there were tens of thousands of working class women in the movement.

And they were violent. They used explosives.

And good on them.

Lovely little animals, more people need to put gaps in their fences, so they can travel about, they wouldn't need to put so many slug pellets down then!

Slug pellets banned in this country now. I think councils need to modify their Local Plans so that all new and existing developments are not allowed to have stupid 6-foot fences on their boundaries. Hedgerows should be mandated. I mean, which would you rather try and climb over, a hedge, or a fence?

Modern developments require hedgehog holes in some cases, personally we would love hedgehogs in our garden if it wasn't for our retarded two terriers.

Same for me. My dog is not going to be put off by those spikes.

Violence for the win!


the attorney general argued that signs of violence - such as a hoax bomb attack targeting Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney in March - justified the UK overriding the deal to keep the peace
If you want change, then get your bombs out (said the suffragettes and Mandela).

Worth putting the savings in crypto yet? Will it come back up? Has it got further to drop? More than any other subject I find finding unbiased articles hard to come across.

There needs to be some sanction of the DUP's continuous bullshit. I'm amazed that no-one thought to time box the NI powersharing agreement so that if one side tries to hold everything to ransom they can be sidelined (in other words "join in or fuck off").

That's amazing. I wonder what the three bright spots are.

Paolo Ardoino tweeted: "[A] reminder that Tether is honouring [Tether] redemptions at $1 - 300 million redeemed in [the] last 24 hours, without a sweat drop."
Lawmakers and officials in a number of countries have called for stablecoins to be regulated.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen cited the TerraUSD collapse, in a Senate committee meeting on Tuesday, to ask again for robust regulation.
"It simply illustrates that this is a rapidly growing product and that there are risks to financial stability and we need a framework that's appropriate," she said.
A UK Treasury report last month also laid out plans to regulate stablecoins, which it predicted would become a ""widespread means of payment".
Personally @Raven, I'm thinking of buying some. Always buy in a fire sale :)
