    Would a court find it reasonable to make a citizen's arrest to prevent criminal damage? Assuming smearing a tube train with superglue is criminal damage and no excessive force was used.

    This also might keep some of the attention hungry celebrities away.

    Amusing stuff.

    Even if you look at the anti-capitalist angle, this was on the publicly-owned Tube!

    The pile on and the end could have been pretty horrendous if calm heads hadn't prevailed.

    I have memories of the LIFFE building being invaded by swampies some years back. They received a reception of such magnitude that they retreated hastily before filing complaints to the Bill.

    I have noticed that thus far there is an awful lot of claiming to be sticking it to the man by blocking roads and then dancing/goading police. On twitter there was a video of a bloke dancing to a didgeridoo and the claim from ER he had stopped a 'baton charge' I have long suspected that the Police do far more to protect the protesters than infringe on them. This validates that. If there were no police there I reckon the 'rebellion' would have ended already.

    So there must be a few of us on here who were poll tax rioters back in the day? Not me I hasten to add, probably the pub being open interfered with my schedule, but I was certainly open to the idea, a bit.

    Have we all grown up, or was the poll tax riot ok because it was Thatcher?
