Chinese “thugs” identified

Chinese Paramilitary Police allowed to operate in London.

At least we now know who they are, where they came from, and palpably what they do!

We still don’t know what was in those bumbags!

Neither do we know who exactly authorised the presence of these men. described by Olympian Lord Coe as “thugs”, onto our streets. Indeed the sight of them organising security measures around Gordon Brown when the flame arrived in Downing Street was rather disturbing to say the least. If I felt humiliated watching the pictures on television, I shudder to think what senior Metropolitan Police commanders felt, or indeed what thoughts were going through the mind of the Prime Minister.

Coe has advised other countries to;

“get rid of those guys”.

Konnie Huq, the Blue Peter girl said:

“They were very robotic, full-on . . . They were barking orders like ‘run’ and ‘stop’ and I was like, ‘Who are these people?’.”

Shadow Home Secretary David Davis is also asking who authorised their presence after it was revealed thattThe security men entered Britain on visitors’ visas but the Home Office would not reveal whether they had disclosed on the application form for whom they worked.

One interesting point to note after the nightmare of the event, is that London still has a sufficient number of athletic policemen of it’s own, able to keep going at a decent pace over a thirty-one mile route, these must be an elite group of specially trained athletes, perhaps members of the Met’s rugby and football teams. Let’s face it with 75% of police time spent behind desks completing ludicrous amounts of paperwork after nicking little Johnny for scrawling graffiti on a garage door, the average beat Bobby wouldn’t be up to it, unless he joined the rugger team!

Wonder what the Police Inspector thinks?

Update

The Telegraph reckon they came from the Peoples Armed Police in China, the paramilitary unit responsible for crushing dissent in Tibet. I’m not sure I can assimilate this, Gordon Brown’s government allowing the killers of fredom in Tibet, the freedom to organise events in London!

I feel nauseated.

  1. Hi Curly,
    Thanks for posting the link to your site from mine.
    I think in a few hours you’re going to see the people in San Francisco erupt in a major protest against these thugs.
    We don’t want them here, either.

    But as long as our governments reward bad behavior for financial gains, then this type of thing will happen.

    China never should have been awarded the games.

    Cheers from Nashville,TN.

    PS–It’s 5:14 am in Nashville, which makes it 3:14 am in San Francisco. In about 5 hours, turn on your telly and follow what happens, today.
