CRAP ARREST OF THE WEEK
For taking part in democracy
A ‘Save Titnore’s Trees’ candidate in the Worthing election was violently arrested for ‘disorderly behaviour’ when she tried to complain to police about her guests being thrown out of the official count. While suited guests were not even checked for ID the scruffier Titnore Protest Camp dwellers were jumped on and told their passes weren’t valid. The Trees got 11% of the vote leaving the BNP wallowing in last place.
