    The Toff Bulingdon Club idiot Boris Johnson has won his court case against peace campaigners on the parliament green. Inteviewed by C4, the upper class twit has said that the victory was an important step in reclaiming what is "ours", and making it ready for the royal wedding.

    Putting outdated and decrepit institutions before freedom and rights.

    Disgusting Tory.

    Boris is awesome. But seriously I don't really care that much about some random hippie. The Royal Wedding is much better, for a start we get a day off.

    I have lost a lot of respect for Boris because of this. What happened to the peoples right to protest? I find this totally unacceptable. Sure, Royal wedding special occasion (I'm not against it nor am I for the wedding) however, peoples right to protest is part of the foundations of a democracy. I also do not believe that Boris's dilemma should have been directly to a court where the majority of the electorates do not have control.

    Put your political agenda aside, and stop trying to score cheap political brownie points.
    The Royal Wedding, which could be the most important cultural event of this century for Great Britain is more important than some hippy campaigners.

    Everyone has the right to protest.

    No-one has to right to squat on public land indefinitely. By being there he is actually restricting other people's ability to protest.

    He's made his point; it's time to move on.

    Nothing.

    But there's a line between a temporary organised demonstration and a permanent camp or installment. Seeing as we aren't even in Iraq any more and haven't been for two years, and seeing that he was basically abusing the right to protest in one of the most high profile spaces in the UK, I have no sympathy for the man. You have a right to protest, not to squat on public property.

    The only reason why permanent camps like the one at Faslane are tolerated is because they're out of the way.

    It's not a protest if you just squat on public property indefinitely.

    This seems sensible more than anything - the headline's (very) exaggerated.

    I was so happy about the wedding because I would get a day off but then work sent out an email saying, in a very convoluted way, that we wont be having a day off.

    It was something along the lines of:

    "Although we are required to give you the day off as it is a bank holiday you will have to either work one of the other bank holidays or decrease your holiday allowance by one day"

    but the wording was much worse, and could been simplified to:

    "its the same as any other day" (ie you use a holiday up if you want a holiday!)

    Sadly the law doesn't mention bank holidays, just 28 days minimum (what I get) >_<

    I agree with Boris. It's a bunch of delusional hippies who haven't got jobs and are no doubt living off the state. But of course they don't want a job because they don't wish to be a 'slave' to the establishment. I class these people in the same league as EDL fascists. OK, their message isn't one of hatred but it's basically the same in the sense that it is just the ramblings of nutcases. Not so much offensive, just extremely annoying.

    There's no 'right' to set up camp on public land and absolutely ruin it for everyone else. You might as well call pitching a tent in the middle of a public road 'a protest'.

    How the police even allowed the man to set up a tent there in the first place is beyond me. I'd have assumed someone who tried to camp out in a public square would be removed within the hour.
