So instead of dealing with whoever burned the actual tower... You arrest 5 random people being tasteless? Priorities at all?

This news goes worldwide but the murder of 5 young men in just as many days hardly gets a mention

They should have stuck to tradition and just burned effigies of Catholics. Somehow nobody considers that to be a hate crime.

Guilty of "bad taste" on a night where the entire country was celebrating the hanging, drawing and quartering of Guy Fawkes and his three co-conspirators  – Thomas Wintour, Ambrose Rookwood, and Robert Keyes.
A night where it's actually a tradition to burn an effigy of Fawkes on the bonfire.
You couldn't make it up.

Really sick and gross humour...But arrested? Those who support this 'big State agenda' you will soon come to regret it, you really will! Try getting fiilled with the same level of outrage for the murder capital city of London.

How tf is this a crime

“Suspicion of causing a public offense” what does that even mean?

British policing is a joke

1 murder and 5 stabbings on the streets of London that night. A great way to waist police resorces.
Poor taste maybe but they should not have been charged.

Right so you get arrested for burning an effigy of a building but not for burning an effigy of a politician (Boris)???
