Chaos in Clapham is Down to Weak Leadership and Activist Martyrs

leave a comment »

All the weeping and wailing about these lawbreakers who were recklessly endangering the health of the people of Clapham is outrageous. I don’t give a damn what gender or colour they were and it’s clear to me that at least some of those arrested were ‘activists’ who went there with the intention of martyrdom and getting some big newspaper headlines. They’ve succeeded and the pathetic response of our political leaders is just more of the same weakness and incompetence that is becoming the norm.

As for the sycophantic, hypocritical media, the Twitterati and the dozy ‘wokesters’, they are beneath contempt and it’s time people got some backbone. None of this does anything at all to deal with street violence or the pandemic.

Having said that, the inconsistency of policing and allowing some events such as football celebrations to go ahead with minimal policing is a huge problem. The police should have co-operated with the group that wanted to organise a socially-distanced, phased attendance vigil.  That is the responsibility of senior officers. As for the ‘poor bloody infantry’, who had to deal with the mob, inflamed by agitators and activists, as usual they get undeserved blame.
