That’ll Learn ‘em

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

I see two grandmothers have been arrested under new powers introduced with the Serious & Organised Crime & Police Act after they were found protesting against the USA’s military base at Menwith Hill in North Yorkshire.

An article on the BBC News website made mention of their senior citizen status and the fact that they were veterans of the Greenham Common protests 25 years ago. So was I, I wonder of we met!

I wonder of they were the ones who walked round Greenham Common with used tampons hanging from their clothes so police officers wouldn’t go near, or if they were the ones who squatted down in front of our riot van for a piss whenever we wanted to move. Probably not, but it brough back some nice memories of my early career.
