The council has said that closing roads, turning traffic lights to red, signs and manpower all costs money and the school needs to pay


That old chestnut. Take it out of the council tax... from the money for maintenance you no longer do, but still charge people for.


"It's not about stifling protest - it's about trying to help people have a successful demonstration. We do that by offering a service and they have to pay for that service."


Unbelievable bullsh*t! Yet unsurprising. Let's have the real reason please. In fact, don't bother... it's about what you said it isn't: stifling protest.


I hope they don't pay.
