These were sent to me without captions, so I'm guessing they were taken at this week's Luton demo...............

This is why the country is getting well and truly pissed off with this sort of thing, If I did that here I'd be banged up in seconds.

These are not from Luton, they were from the the Pope and Cartoon things. In Luton the banners read "Baby Killers" "Butchers of Basra" "Terrorist for the government" and some had pictures of dead Iraqi children.

it is in 1 or 2 countries in Europe but not the UK.
Personally I believe such laws are a breach of the right of free speech.

I do love the irony of the "Freedom go to Hell" placard/protester.

Maybe he'd be happier being torutured, locked up in a cupboard than the being summarily executed... or just whisked away from his family one night, never to be seen again. You're not a martyr if no-one knows what happened.

Apology accepted, but I think a thank you is also due. As news spreaders, we should be thankful when people highlight our mistakes and inaccuracies etc, instead of using them in Machiavellian ways, or to later discredit us..
