On a lighter note this appearance by Tony Benn on the beeb is fucking hilarious:
Run officer ruuun!
Oops too late.
And so the delicate negotiations begin...
...while the delighted security guard relishes his moment of fame.
More plods arrive.
The assembled Police begin that awkward eviction process...
...mindful of the importance of that 'softly softly' approach.
Until every last critic of BBC racism...
...has left the buidling.
They continue outside. No arrests.
So upon arrival the protesters were told that the Director General was unavailable for comment so they decided to sit down and wait for him. At this point several bewildered cops burst in and proceeded to throw the press out and have one of those awkward conversations with the regular residents of the building about what to do next?
One particularly comic moment occurred when a BBC camera crew showed up and entered the building having shown their BBC passes to the Police to get in. They were then promptly thrown out by their own security despite the obvious editorial control which the beeb would have over whatever they shot. Or were they just worried that it might end up on You Tube?
