Many world leaders are arriving for the actual G20 summit in London… But with France threatening to walk out unless tough financial regulation is agreed by everyone, do you agree with Sarkozy?
While most news media focussed on the scuffles between police and some protestors, yesterday’s diverse protests were more like a festival than a fight…
“Am woefully disappointed – biggest let down since rumours Bros were reforming….If this is Armageddon, maybe hell isn’t that bad after all.”
But what of the authorities’ response?
Police tactics of “kettling” protestors in London had tragic consequences when a man died. Protestors complain of police brutality during peaceful sit-down protests and a university professor is suspended for saying bankers may get lynched.
In a country that has gone to war to protect other’s freedom and democracy, does it make you look at Britain anew? Or is this just par for the course in troubled times?
“Those who think that through concessions they will gain respect and peace are wrong. It’s the other way around; it will lead to more wars.”
New Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman
Do you agree?
