PHOTO: Palestinian flags and police helmets dumped on the Cenotaph

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Palestinian flags and police helmets dumped on the Cenotaph.

The furore over pro-Palestinian demonstrations in Westminster on Saturday is still raging, with the Met releasing a clearer picture of one of the two women they are tracing over symbols taped to their jackets.

Tories are also demanding to know why the protests were allowed to take place by the 'hallowed ground' of the Cenotaph. 

Pictures showed the stage for speakers including Jeremy Corbyn was installed in front of the memorial to Britain's war dead.

The Met told MailOnline that Westminster Council is responsible for permitting or blocking protests on roads. But the council said it had not given approval.    The monument, erected on Remembrance Day in 1920, commemorates the “glorious dead” who sacrificed their lives fighting in both World Wars.

Former Ukip MEP Patrick O’Flynn said: “It's been obvious since the BLM summer of 2020 that our most cherished national monuments are not safe under the leftist London mayoral regime.

“Tories with a big Commons majority have done nothing about this re switching powers on this stuff back to national level. Very poor show.”

Nile Gardiner, an ex-aide to Margaret Thatcher, added: “The Cenotaph is the UK's most sacred war memorial, remembering all who died defending the British people and the British Empire in two world wars.

Hamas used paragliders as part of its attack on Israel on October 7.

Mr Sunak said the Met is reviewing footage of the protest that took place in Whitehall at the weekend.

'Hamas is a proscribed terrorist organisation, it's very clear under the law, the support and glorification of Hamas is illegal, and those offences are punishable with up to almost 14 years in jail,' he said.

'But it's not just about Hamas, more broadly actions that incite violence or stir up religious hatred and racial violence are also not acceptable and that's why, as I said, there's no place in our society for that type of hatred and division, and it will be met with the full force of the law where it happens.'

In a round of interviews this morning, Defence minister James Heappey told Sky News: 'I think that that celebration and glorification of what happened last Saturday is despicable.
