Protest Against The Government Without Government Approval? Get Arrested!

In an astoundingly totalitarian move, the Labour government has made it illegal to protest outside Parliament, Downing Street, The Treasury, The Home Office, The Foreign Office and The Ministry of Defence, unless you have prior approval from the police state.

You have no right to protest. The police can choose not to approve your request to protest against the government. They may also limit the amount of time you can protest to, say, 4 seconds if they so choose and ban you from carrying a banner.

Anyone leading a peaceful protest involving more than one person, without prior police state approval, can be jailed for up to 51 weeks.
