Seven women and three men have been arrested in South London on ‘conspiracy to cause public nuisance’.
It isn’t until you think about the sentence that you realise it is actually just made up by police so they can arrest you. And by the time you have thought about it, it is too late because you’ve been arrested. Actually very clever from them I must admit.
Now if the police were to ‘police’ this law then thousands of people stepping into the pub on the weekend will be guilty of conspiracy to cause public nuisance.
Climate change protesters sprayed the treasury with 1,800 litres of fake blood on Thursday.
This is one of the reasons why the police now are making up laws. And by wording them using fancy sentences, this makes people believe that they might be an actual law.
We asked one of the officers if he had just made up the law, he said, “Are you conspiring to cause a nuisance by way of querying the authority of an officer of the law? Because that’s a offence.”
We were duly arrested for posing this question. It wasn’t until afterwards that we realised he may have made up that law as well.
The arrests come before a planned Extinction Rebellion protest on the Lambeth and Westminster bridges calling for urgent action on climate change.
The police don’t want to deal with all the hassle of the protesters at once so thought it would be a good idea to arrest some beforehand. According to a police spokesperson protesters can be, “very annoying”.
Other laws that they have made up include ‘no drinking on the tube’, ‘arrest at least 5 people Thursday’, ‘speed limits’ and ‘paying taxes.’
After visiting the pub we were arrested again for singing, “I know a song that’ll get on your nerves, get on your nerves, get on your nerves, I know a song that’ll get on your nerves, get on your nerves, get on your nerves and it goes like this”.
