    G20 Protests in London - security in office tightened!

    well, i personally think that the security in place in central london today is extreme, never seen anything like it! mind you, saying that, 1999 protests i was still in primary school !!

    everywhere seems to be ready, but what will actually happen?

    in our office, we have kept our revolving doors locked, entrance by key fob only! all ground floor blinds closed, everyone in dressed down. door grilles on fire exits closed (but with keys in the locks). its just crazy imo!

    shops round here are boarded up, banks are closed. roads are quieter, and the tube was much quieter than usual!

    we will just have to wait and see how the day unfolds, at the moment it is relatively quiet!

    the office across the road from us has been listed as a target, except its been empty for a couple of weeks now, will be interesting to see what happens, and hope they don't turn on us if they find no one there!

    will try and update throughout the day!

    I was at the G8 summit in Gleneagles a few years back, we spent 3 days inside the fences living in a camper van because it was too much hassle to get through security every day. It was probably the safest I'll ever be, never seen so many armed police in my life.
    No longer an astra owner

    Now a Vectra owner

    There were already rumours and posts on some websites I use that there were groups of people that were nothing to do with the demo that were going allong to cause trouble.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Think so from what I heard on the news. Policeman got smashed over the head with a pole?

    Police should be armed for things like this, and just shoot them IMO. Peaceful protesting is one thing, but smashing up buildings and attacking people, WTF

    So buildings are getting smashed up, and the police are trying to control the animals doing it. A policeman gets smashed over the head with a pole doing his job and the guy should be given a medal?

    Think you need a reality check TBH mate.
