I'm afraid Britain has become a laughing stock.
"Mostly drunk, the protestors sang "Engerland, Engerland, Engerland" beside the Cenotaph before doing Nazi salutes. Churchill and the soldiers of two world wars would have enjoyed the show." via @libe https://t.co/bfCZpiM3DX

An underrated causation of what happened in London today is that Wetherspoons has been closed for three months. Those who knock it forget that it's a very effective creche.

I’ve never seen a protest so hostile to press.
A black BBC photographer has just been accused of defacing the statue of Winston Churchill.
A demonstrator just grabbed my press badge and had a long, hard look at who I worked for, before nodding and walking off.

The graduating West Point cadets had return to campus to be quarantined for two weeks in their barracks, wearing masks and participating in zoom leadership calls, as they waited for Trump to use them as a prop as he struggled to deliver an uninspiring, politically infused speech. https://t.co/J1YMAETBUD

If you didn’t watch his West Point address today, it was a compilation of mush-mouthed clusterfuckery.
