Camilla was hit by rioter through car window as protesters attack royals
London Evening Standard ^ | 12/10/10 | Ross Lydall and Justin Davenport

Posted on 12/10/2010 6:27:47 AM PST by Former Fetus

The Duchess of Cornwall was physically attacked through an open car window as thugs rampaged through London, the Standard can reveal today.

A rioter managed to push a stick through an open window of the limousine and jab her in the ribs. Camilla's terrifying ordeal came as a baying mob surrounded her and husband Prince Charles when they rode through central London in the vintage Rolls-Royce last night.

A police source said one of the car's rear windows was opened by mistake as tuition fee protesters moved in. The attack is the biggest royal security breach in decades and raises new questions about the protection of the couple.

The Standard can now reveal the breach was even more serious than first appeared, with thugs managing to reach deep into the car's interior.

Armed officers were seconds from drawing their weapons but the police driver managed to accelerate away from trouble. Police sources have revealed that the Duchess was “very scared” when the yob leaned into the car.

Jabbed in the ribs? It's too funny! They ought to learn from Zero about security.

I'm afraid riots like this one will only become more and more common, as the European governments become unable to support the level of entitlements their citizens have got used to. Tough luck! Learn to pay your tuition by scholarships and hard work!

Perhaps these “students,” should be housed at the zoo rather than a university. Many appear to be 40+ anarchists and other unsavory characters.

What is funny is the entitlement zombies are attacking the tax-leeching royal family... that is kind of ironic.

Wow. Jabbed with a stick while inside the vehicle? That means if the perp had been armed (with a real weapon ...even a sharpened stick rathet than a blunt one) he could have potentially killed her. I do not know the background details here, but I thought the royals had better protection than appears to be the case here. Particularly since Charles was there.

Seem to remember an incident where someone was jabbed with an umbrella as he walked down the street and then went on to die from ricin poisoning a few days later.

Okay, they “mistakenly” drive into the midst of a fargin riot, then a window is “accidentally” rolled down? Oh c’mon, they don’t really expect people to believe this incident wasn’t a total setup? Charles & Camilla better get an all-new security team because their current one is working for the other side.

Isn't it sad that a civilized country would raise such a pack of worthless parasitic fools who believe they are entitled to schooling. It's quite apparent what they've been learning isn't it? Seems to me there is revolution in the air around the globe, all the hopes and dreams of those who long for one world rule are coalescing.

Can't wait until this comes here because our population is only, oh I dunno, 100 times more violent. At least our underclass, I should clarify.

And notice how the article says that armed officers were still seconds away from even pulling out their firearms? Amazing that you can assault the Royals and get away with it over there.

A rioter managed to push a stick 10' pole through an open window of the limousine and jab her in the ribs.

My question is "what were they thinking?" Did someone direction them to drive there or did chuck think he was so beloved he'd be greeted with open arms?

They should not have been there at all. Perhaps his mother gave them directions home?

In all societies and at all times, there is exists an element which is inimical to order and stability.

These disaffected misfits invariably ‘find’ one another. Their inclination for pointless discord, social instability, hostility, violence and opposition to all/any authority is perpetuated from one generation to another. Nothing and no one calls this mentality what it is…..anarchy.

What is worse, in recent times and especially in the US, this element is praised as a commendable expression of ‘independent spirit’, and appropriate resistance to the establishment. The MSM is NOT careful enough to make a distinction between this gratuitous, destructive and inane perpetuation of class hatred and the reasoned and logical ‘opposition’ which IS natural and necessary to any wholesomely functioning society.

Instead of neutralizing and slowly absorbing this element into society and to the establishment system, this rabble has been glamorized, encouraged and elevated to the status of socially/politically ‘sage’ ‘young Turks’ we CANNOT/MUST NOT ignore.

The MSM agonizes over every whimper and whim of this rabble and panders to all and sundry who defend them.

Really!!??

How about this?

Humanity has for millennia been striving to distance itself from ideas, individuals and groups just like this. In fact, I think you can calculate the success of ANY society by a measure of just how little of this element remains and how far the society as a whole is removed FROM it.

Why does the MSM and Hollywood persist in glamorizing people and groups who want to disregard and abandon millennia of civilization and socialization to drag us back to a state of mind we voluntarily rejected when the first human looked around and KNEW we he was NOT an animal?

Rabble is RABBLE, and a MOB is a MOB…. We CANNOT afford to indulge them!!!

Ohhhhhhhh...they were tuition fee protestors were they?

Funny how the English have different words than we do. Over here they are known as long-haired, sassy-mouthed, drug-crazed, flea-infested, freeloaders.

I'd bet most of those phones are expensive smartphones with full data plans and I wouldn't doubt they have high speed internet and satellite TV at home, either.

I just read in El Pais that the tuition hike the students are protesting about includes a "sweetener" in that it does not have to be paid until the student graduates, gets a job, and has an income of at least 25,000 euros ($33,000). If you can read Spanish, it is HERE

These students have way too much time on their hands, IMHO

Tough luck! Learn to pay your tuition by scholarships and hard work!

The early struggles of H.G. Wells in trying to keep body and soul together and qualify for teaching should be read by them. Victorian London. an exciting but harsh and cruel place for those without funds. Wells almost suffered malnutrition while going to classes. I guess they do not read and digest much, those "students".

I am not myself a supporter of the pampered and over privileged. This includes the Royals. I do offer that, even with the arrogance and attitude of many of the famous, including American icons this. They do have rights the same as anyone else. That is to say, if going about any normal activities as anyone else and not "on stage", no one has any right to do such things.
