    So all a wanna-be dictator needs is a few vilent infiltrators in order to get justification for brutal military crackdown on legitimate protest?

    Talk about trying to put words in my mouth!

    If police cannot maintain control of the streets - the only option left is soldiers on the ground - this is how to run a country 101.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Casual criminals jump on the protest bandwagon and turn these things into looting sprees. Short memories some people.

    Horrible scenes of an old lady protecting her shop being attacked by looters/protestors. This just strengthens the resolve of the establishment to use the stick rather than the carrot.

    Yes we are too busy arguing if the rioters and looters might be of colour or local not agreeing that they need to be stopped in a civilised country!

    Peaceful protesters welcome just in case the thickies get confused.
