Didn't know where to post this thread, but here goes.
As you've most likely seen, our future king, Prince Charles and Camilla were being driven to a charity event at the London Palladium the other night in the official Rolls Royce, with outriders and armed protection, at the same time as a 30,000 student demo was taking place. They were surrounded by a huge group of rioters who attacked them, throwing paint all over the car, rocking it, smashing the bullet proof windows, prodding them with sticks etc etc.
Through all this the Royal Protection Sqad never drew their weapons or even got out of their vehicles. After the event they were driven home in an ordinary police riot van.
What would have happened on your side of the pond?
Makes you seriously wonder how safe we are against terrorist doesn't it.
