The 44-year-old victim found himself surrounded by a group of protesters outside St James’s Park London Underground station at 6pm on May 27.
He was approached by the rowdy group as he made his way to a nearby bus stop.
Police said the protesters encircled the man, preventing him from returning to the tube station or getting to the bus stop.
Officers had to help the man move safely away from the group and he was escorted to a police vehicle, which a number of people attempted to prevent him from leaving.
The man was driven a short distance away from the group.Christ! Why are we paying these numpties again?
If there were enough officers to escort him, there were enough to make some arrests!
No doubt the usual excuse – ‘we didn’t want to inflame the situation’ – will be trotted out…
