Kingsnorth Eco-Warriors Cost - £5.9million

Courtesy of the BBC (aka the Brussels Broadcasting Company) we now learn the cost of the police operation at Kingsnorth Power Station cost £5.9million. Details obtained by the BBC under a Freedom of Information request can be read here.

According to one of the police officers present at Kingsnorth:

In the end, the ‘Battle of Kingsnorth’ was more like an endless, one-sided game of British Bulldog between the Sixth Form (the police) and the Infants (them). Both sides privately admitted to feeling a little silly. The protesters simply waited until we had gone and invaded the power station anyway.

So that was taxpayers money well spent, was it not?
