Despite the sealing of the bridges, there never really was any real danger that Parliament was going to be stormed, and most of the street level “bobbies” knew that. I spent a while chatting with these chaps who were enjoying the day. Although we did not try to get to Parliament, the fact that the government had to seal itself off behind police lines from the public to whom it answers, made a significant statement about the state of British democracy in that moment.
