  • bit much for one man on the roof, more exposure than the fiddler dude i reckon. he down now really need to keep stuff closed!?!? cut benefits and destroy lives but block roads unneeding to be blocked

    GENIUS

  • So why didn’t the police arrive at the scene so quick when the man was alive back in November near the multi story?! You lot take the piss, you really do.

  • I’m sure the police have closed the roads for a good reason.
    The first comment here is idiotic. Benefits are being cut across the country because we can no longer support lazy people with no conscience and their growing families.

      • I never said all people on benefits are lazy, most have a genuine reason for needing the financial support.
        However, there are many who don’t deserve it and are just selfish, lazy slobs.
        People like them make ME sick.

  • only ppl that get £500+ a week on benefits will notice any change. most workers would be glad to earn that much its stupid when ppl get paid more for not working

  • This is what I do not understand:

    “He was detained by police on the roof”

    “A Police helicopter has been called in to take aerial photos of the damage caused to the roof”

    So that is around £6000 of tax payers money wasted on taking a few fancy photos… And they wonder why their jobs are being cut!

  • Getting a bit of track guys but some valid points . I’m sure the police wouldn’t make so many roads closed for no reason the guy could have been armed for one , lets give them a fair crack of the whip before we tear into them with no evidence !!!
