BBC News - Stuart Rodger sentenced for shouting at David Cameron
When I read this headline, I had an immediate instinct to check whether it was a parody. But it's not. What the fuck?

'A man who shouted "no public sector cuts" at David Cameron during a speech in Glasgow has been ordered to carry out 100 hours of community service.'

New, horribly restrictive byelaws for Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square Garden
No tents/sleeping bags is an arguable one. No public speaking? That I disagree with.

"Any objection to the confirmation of the Byelaws may be made by letter addressed to Carl Schnackenberg, Department for Culture, Media and Sport, 2-4 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5DH, or by email to: Carl.Schnackenberg@Culture.gsi.gov.uk. "
