Weighing in from Copenhagen Ms. May described yesterdays demonstrations as a ..."support march"........"a positive and joyful event....." and further declared that, "the mood was very celebratory". May also claimed that Danish police had estimated the size of the demonstration/celebration at 100,000 people.
Well that all sounds ducky except I had read this piece from the BBC prior to viewing the Question Period clip.
Climate change groups have criticised Danish police for using heavy-handed tactics after they detained 968 people at a rally near the Copenhagen summit.
Mel Evans from Climate Justice Action told the BBC protesters were held for hours in freezing conditions without medical attention, water or toilets.
Well that doesn't sound positive or joyful. What about the celebrations?
The protest was mainly peaceful, but some protesters threw bricks and smashed windows in the city centre, while others set off fireworks.
Large numbers of mainly young people were later detained. TV pictures showed the police putting the demonstrators in seated lines on the street with their hands tied behind their backs. They were later removed on buses.
Ms Evans said the actions of the police were appalling.
"People were very scared and they were held for about four hours on the ground. They weren't able to have any medical attention, any water, and weren't allowed to have any toilet facilities," she told BBC Five Live.
"People were there in freezing conditions urinating on themselves and being held in lines like, essentially like animals."
Not really my kind of celebration but I guess in a crowd of 100,000 a thousand bad apples could happen. Danish police did say it was 100,000 people....right Liz?
Police said about 30,000 people took part in Saturday's demonstration in the Danish capital, although organisers put the number at 100,000.
So Jane and Liz initially downplay the number of arrests citing 40-50 when the actual number was around a thousand. Liz then typifies the event as a 100,000 strong love in, when it appears to have been anything but, in both size and spirit.
Is it any wonder that I'm a tad cynical when Lizzie dodges a legitimate question on the financial costs of a Copenhagen treaty by referring to a potential 9 meter seal level rises in Canada.
Liz yer full of shit.
