Freedom of Speech: Hypocrisy wins over democracy in UK? (video)

The UK government is being criticized for its disregard for freedom of speech after protesters were forcibly removed from outside the Houses of Parliament in London.

As dozens of bailiffs and police swooped to clear out the campaigners, London's mayor said the demonstrators were making a mess, and were stopping the public from enjoying Parliament Square.
