Masks Slip as "Patriots" Assault Police

11/11/2023

Hundreds of far right thugs, nearly exclusively heterosexual, white and male, amassed in London on Armistice Day, 11th November, where they fought with the police, according to a report on the Sky News Channel.  The disgraced homophobic religious talking head, Calvin Robinson, late of the right wing talk channel "GB News", was spotted amongst the mob, said Sky reporters.  It was somewhat ironic that the far right had said that they were rallying to counter the left wing Pro-Palestinian and Pro-Peace March taking place elsewhere in London.  However, it was the right that ended up fighting with police and shouting slogans such as "lets have them!".  In the wake of the trouble, London mayor Sadiq Khan wrote on X: "The scenes of disorder we witnessed by the far-right at the Cenotaph are a direct result of the home secretary's words.  Scottish First Minister Humza Yousaf said: "The far-right has been emboldened by the home secretary. She has spent her week fanning the flames of division. They are now attacking the police on Armistice Day."  He concluded "The home secretary's position is untenable. She must resign."
