FIT team and the new ‘baby blue’ Police Liasion cops were much in evidence on the Mayday march in London. We’ve also had reports of a PCSO in a FIT role – first time we’ve come across that!
Some reports have suggested that the FIT were in evidence partly because the cops seem fixated on jumping on anything they take to be the flags of ‘proscribed’ groups, such as that of the Kurdish PKK. They never seem to tire of harassing Kurdish demonstrators.
But it was also brought to our attention that there was a ‘U’ serial (TSG) marching with Occupy/UKUncut at all times. And that the friendly ‘police liason’ were hanging around too, ‘liaising’ between protesters and the TSG, passing on what they would have picked up about the protesters ‘intentions’.
The police also had at least one PCSO sticking to the stewards and hanging out with them throughout, presumably to ‘liaise’ between stewards and cops.
Pics show the lovely baby blue Police Liason; FIT regular Glyn Williams with photographer Gavin Paul (Gavin Paul once threw a Fitwatcher to the ground because they dared to take photos of him, but he seems happy enough using brute force to get pics of others); and weasel-faced photographer Neal Williams here seen leering rather disturbingly at the attractive young woman just out of shot.
