Westminster not OK?

If demonstrations are to continue in the vicinity of Parliament, which is likely given the controversial complexion of current British politics, is there not a strong case for moving all but the ceremonial occasions - like the Queen’s opening of a new session - to some extremity of the city where the life of London will not be disrupted by protesters? At a whim, a few thousand demonstrators can now disorder the transport, entertainment or commercial arrangements of millions of Londoners and draw down the police resources of every Metropolitan district. This is getting beyond the patience of many of us. We do not want our city taken over by the disaffected, with the consequent charge to our rates for their policing and medical services. Which of our London boroughs will come up with a plan for rehousing parliament in an appropriate setting, with suitable areas for demonstrations, while allowing the citizenry to get on with its everyday life? Westminster does not have to rule,  OK?

is Barking a London borough? Seems an apt place.

Hampstead Heath, to remind the Hampstead champagne socialists what demonic forces the chattering classes and their left-liberal claptrap have unleashed on the rest of us.
