    if thats the case why did we criticize other governments for using tear gas??
    CS gas has been deployed against civilians 5 times in the UK. It's use is incredibly rare and only is extreme circumstances, not against peaceful (or even violent) protesters.

    This is not the case in many other countries.

    Yes, just as police here may legally carry firearms and baton rounds, but don't fire either on peaceful, or even non-peaceful protesters, and are only used when there is threat to life. Same as the water cannon, legal but not used. This is not the case in many other countries.

    There's some protesters like proper looking elderly gentlemen who want to protest the corruptness of the government then there's a bunch of morons dancing around a stereo while playing dubstep-reggae music. David Cameron is most likely going to put on some noise cancelling headphones, write out an apology to the actual protesters then go back to doing something actually useful.

    It's just a bunch of wannabe anarchist hipsters playing s:banana::banana::banana:ty reggae-dubstep music complaining about something that quite frankly effects very few people. Now if they were protesting about the recent junior doctor developments then I would be understanding about

    This is the reason why this country is so messed up - The British stiff upper lip. I actually respect people who get out there expressing how they feel rather than these useless people sitting on their arses hating on forums.

    Brits need to get out of the stiff upper lip (put up or shut up) mentality. These people have every right to protest.

    I'm really not that fussed about the whole thing to be honest. It isn't news that rich people do everything they can to avoid tax.

    Again, is this the "put up or shut up" mentality? I can't stand people who preach "this is just how things are so you shouldn't bother trying to make a change".
