Sixteen Arrested as Thousands of Leftists Celebrate Lady Thatcher’s Death in Trafalgar Square (Video)
Sixteen protesters were arrested as thousands of leftists drummed, danced, sang and rioted in Trafalgar Square last night.
They were celebrating former prime minister Margaret Thatcher’s death.
Classy as always – sixteen leftists were arrested.
Press TV reported:
British Police have confirmed that a total of 16 people were arrested in London’s Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and nearby streets during protests over former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s legacy.
Metropolitan Police officers made the arrests in the early hours of Sunday after hundreds of Thatcher’s opponents staged a demonstration in the British capital on April 13.
Most of those arrested are said to have remained in the police custody at a central London police station.
Retired miner Dave Douglas from Newcastle, part of the delegation from the miners’ union, described former British premier as a “terrible woman”.
“In the north of England, in Scotland, Wales and the Midlands, people are celebrating the fact she’s gone because we don’t support what she did to our community, our industry and our unions,” he said.
Hundreds of anti-cuts activists also held protests outside the homes of some British officials on Saturday against the government’s bedroom tax and benefits cap.
The former British Prime Minister died on April 8 at the age of 87 after suffering from a series of strokes.
The protesters chanted, “Maggie, Maggie, Maggie… The bitch is dead.”
