Well the good thing is, I just saw a picture of five police officers protecting a statue so I assume somewhere there are five statues protecting women.

Every day this country gets a little worse, and every day there's a little less we can do about it.

What is the punishment if you attack one of those people who pretend to be a statue?

If we all chipped in we could build a statue of Jedward and anyone who defaced it would go to jail

Theresa May will be absolutely fucking fuming when she finds out Theresa May voted to pass the bill Theresa May stood up in the Commons and called a pile of shit 24 hours ago.

Of course, the implications of it being illegal to be annoying could reach further than the government intended.
If this bill does get past the lords I urge everyone to make it hell for the MPs who voted for it. Every time you see Boris Johnson giving a speech in public, disrupting a work place call the fucking police.
