Attack on Royalty

Yes, yes Charles and Camilla's car ended up worse for wear, but let's be honest any limousine would have had the same happen to it regardless of its occupants. What's worse is the response to this, I'll ignore "attack on democracy" for the same reason as "contempt of..." as well as the fact they represent a hereditary system that's hardly democratic.

What is appalling is this thinly veiled threat from the Metropolitan Police Commissioner

"The officers who were protecting the Royal Highnesses showed very real restraint. Some of those officers were armed,"
Gosh how restrained, perhaps they should get commendations; and while they're picking up their awards for not shooting unarmed civilians they can be asked what the hell they were doing allowing this car to drive through the middle of a riot?
