Only in Britain ...

Watched the footage on this evening's on the news of the mob attack on the car convoy carrying the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

There can be few countries in the world where rioters could attack a car containing the next in line to the head of state, and the armed officers providing security manage to get their charge out of danger without opening fire. Whatever other questions are being asked and should be asked about policing on the day of the student fees demonstration, the restraint and discipline of the royalty protection officers involved in that incident does them enormous credit.

The rioters who first hi-jacked what was meant to be a peaceful demonstration, and then attacked Charles & Camilla's car probably think they were protesting against a repressive state. They owe the fact that they are still alive to the reality that they're wrong.
