London police use new barrier to stop protesters.

The "Iron Curtian", anyone?

These are probably stainless. I like 'em. Every municipality should get some for the hippie rallies.

I like it....god knows that if LAPD or NYPD tried something like this they would be deemed "unconstitutional" and would be told to take them down.

After looking at some of the images in the article, I wonder how durable it really is. How well would it hold up to a group of turdbags pushing against it.

Too bad they had to spend the money on the barricades !

Should just let the coppers take care of business and give the coppers a pay raise.

Maybe they should set it up and use it as a corral for hippies.

From the pics, there are at least a couple of 5 ton trucks bracing it.

ETA: I stand corrected. They are trailer based.It does look like a crowd could shove the whole thing out of the way.
