Watch out in Westminster, or on the news, for a group of bikers on a sight seeing day out in London.

They will be passing the Houses of Parliament around 13:00 or shortly after. So far there is around 2,000 bikes and growing.
It might just happen that they have flags and banners in support of Dennis Hutchings, 'Soldier F', being prosecuted for the killing of one of the riotious mob on Bloody Sunday.

If he was IRA and had shot a British Soldier he would have total immunity through the Good Friday agreement. If new evidence came to light and he was prosecuted for murder he would only face a maximum of 2 years in prison.

Because he was a British Solder (Para's) he could be facing life imprisoment for defending the right of the Norther Irish to remain part of the UK.

Where is the fairness in this, there isn't any at all. Surely he should be protected by the Human Rights Act because he is being discriminated against for being a veteran British Soldier and facing different treatment to that of IRA murderers.

DOH! Yes it is of course, this Friday. 

I don't know what I was thinking of, maybe RBLR1000 which is June! What an idiot!
Thanks for pointing out my error.

Good luck to all that will be supporting the ride out today. Im in Afghanistan and really wish I was able to be part of the ride. Reading the news reports from a number of diffrent media there is reports thay 7000 riders will be meeting up. That is outstanding and I feel so proud to have served. I will be watching with interest to see what showes up on the UK's main TV news broadcasts, such as on the BBC, ITV,Ch 4 and Sky news! 

Good luck everyone

Hi Anto - That expected number of bikes of 7,000 did not happen, the metropolitan police estimate that there were 22,000 (TWENTY TWO THOUSAND) bikes turned up, fantastic turnout.

This is going to be followed up with further rides of the same nature but taking in all of those under threat of prosecution and calling on the government to change the law giving the IRA immunity and not giving the British military the same treatment, must be against Human Rights law I would think.

Also, I have been told that there are talks going on in the background regarding this although I am not privy to any details. We'll see, could turn out to be Bullsh*t.

The BBC is being hit by hundreds, probably going to be thousands by the end of it, with letters of complaint about their total lack of coverage of the event. They did, however, see fit to cover a much smaller demonstration of schoolchildren against environmental pollution!

Take care out there, our daughter did two tours of Afghanistan (RAF Tactical Police Squadron) and also in and out of Syria for months but his mother and I knew nothing of that of course ðŸ˜‰

Cheers

Dave
