Science Secretary on policing of Palestine protests
Foreign nationals who violate Remembrance weekend with protests against Israel in central London should be deported immediately, Reform UK leader Richard Tice has demanded.
With plans for “a million person march” for Palestine next weekend, when the nation remembers those who gave their lives for this country in defence of freedom, the Government is coming under pressure to demand that the demonstrations are blocked and stopped.
Mr Tice has joined calls for the army to be deployed on the streets of London to protect the commemorations and deal with any protesters trying to demonstrate over the weekend.
It comes after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak issued a statement ordering the police to do “everything necessary to protect the sanctity of Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday”.
But Mr Tice warns that the Prime Minister has not gone far enough.

The Reform UK leader said: “Armistice Day and the Remembrance weekend is a deep enduring part of our British national heritage and culture and must be respected.
“Reform UK calls for the Armistice Day Free Palestine and related marches to be banned in the UK next weekend.
“This should be enforced by all means necessary.”
He added: “Anyone attempting to defy the ban is liable to be fined and any foreign nationals will have their visas permanently revoked on the basis they do not respect our British customs, values and way of life.
“After next weekend, a new law should be introduced in a timely manner disallowing any protest marches and events on Armistice Day and Remembrance weekend.”

The current plans involve a massive march on Saturday September 11 before the commemorations at the Cenotaph on Sunday September 12.
Already pro-Palestinian demonstrators have violated the cenotaph once, building a platform connected to the monument with anti-Israel and antisemitic slogans on banners draped over it on the first weekend of protests.
The demonstrations by thousands of hard left activists and Muslims who have been seen waving Jihadi flags and wearing symbols glorifying the mass slaughter by Hamas terrorists in Israel on October 7 have caused concerns that the police have lost control of the streets.
Met Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley admitted that the force is now overstretched trying to contain the demonstrations leaving parts of London exposed to crime.
But there have been questions over the failure of the Met to arrest people openly celebrating and supporting Hamas terrorism and chanting antisemitic slogans.
Meanwhile, police have now twice been seen clamping down on attempts to show the pictures of Israeli children kidnapped by Hamas.
