    Why are far right thugs attacking the police in Central London?

    There's no football to go to.

    It costs a lot of money to go to football, well PL and EFL. They must saved some money at least.

    Wasn't Johnson implying yesterday that people should come out and protect the statues.

    Yes, but why attack the police when you are peacefully protecting national heritage.

    The BLM protesters had their demo yesterday instead.

    Don’t worry, only 10 more minutes to go until curfew. I’m sure everyone will go home peaceably then.

    So even less reason for thuggery against the police if there is no counter demo that they are maintaing a thin blue line to keep the sides apart.

    Yes. Shaking hands with the bobbies before they make their way home. Good job the pubs are shut. Apparently some tourists were caught up in the trouble. Tourists? Where have they come from?

    5.00pm. The 'different phase' starts now. Containment and arrest.
    The protests are on going. Scuffles in Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square. Seems like some attacking the police are football hooligans.

    Oh so the answer to the OP's question is "Boris Johnson told them to". Simples

    Johnson needs to be more careful what he says.

    Indeed. BLM have reversed decades of improved race relations in just one week.

    Much as with the BLM protests... some idiots will get into violent altercations... and this will become the focus.

    Follow someone like Mahyar Tousi who's been tweeting from both sides and you get a different perspective ... veterans groups peacefully protested, others peacefully protested... but the focus will be on the violent minority who only came to have a fight.

    Meanwhile there are BLM protesters out who are also causing problems for the police.

    Not only are the police institutionally racist, they are also agents of the multicultural liberal elite.

    BLM are probably right. They should be disbanded.
