MP rages at ‘un-British’ cops as they bundle old lady in police van from lockdown protest

27 Mar 2021

A TORY MP blasted "disgraceful and un-British" police officers after they arrested an elderly woman and bundled her into a van while protesting outside Parliament.

Sir Charles Walker told the cops their actions were "an outrage" as he walked towards Portcullis House on Tuesday afternoon.

It is believed the 72-year-old woman was participating either in an anti-lockdown protest or an anti-vaccine demonstration.

The former chair of the 1922 Committee spoke in the Commons about the what he saw.

Sir Charles said: "I have just witnessed an elderly lady peacefully protesting with a handful of other people be arrested and carried spread-eagle to a police van just outside the precinct of the House of Commons.

"This is a disgrace. This is un-British. It is unconstitutional and this Government, our Prime Minister needs to end these injustices now.

"Madam Deputy Speaker, will you bring the Prime Minister and/or the Home Secretary here today to sort this out?

"She was an old lady robbed of her dignity for having the courage to protest about having her fundamental rights and those of my constituents and others removed."

A video online shows Sir Charles speaking to police as they put the woman in the back of their van.

The MP for Broxbourne can be heard saying: "You must have mothers? What an outrage! What a disgrace! This is an absolute disgrace."
