James Goddard has been arrested for public order offences.  We have the right of assembly and protest in this country, but when it crosses over into criminal behaviour, the law can be invoked.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Were his mates at the Grenfell Tower burning effigy?

Arrested for "public order offences". A bit vague isn't it? I would love to know what in reality he did that was illegal. Will be interesting to find out.

 

I'm not condoning his bullying and ignorant behaviour but how silly is it of TV companies to interview people in such an open environment? An invitation to anyone with a grievance, or wanting a few seconds of 'fame' to shout or protest in the vacinity.

A video of his arrest @andath

A friend of his repeatedly refers to the police as Gestapo and says the whole country is behind him.

@andath Public order offences can be quite vague sounding but there will be more behind the reason for arrest. If it’s for the chanting outside of parliament it seems a bit ridiculous - surely if an offence was committed then he should have been arrested at the time?

 

I don’t know how much of the chanting you saw (there were a couple of videos) but at one point amember of the very very small group shouted “What do we want?” to which no one could think of anything and that’s when “Soubry is a Nazi” started. It’s hardly crime of the century and a little bit sad and rather pathetic really. 

 

He has done other things that have begged the question to be asked, “why was he not arrested” but if this is what he was arrested for...? You re right, will be mildly interesting to see what the details are, if only to see if his arrest is purely because an MP of the current government complained.
