Disturbing footage was sent Politicalite‘s way on Twitter. It shows a lady, clearly attending a pro-Brexit demonstration outside Parliament asking several times for the Police Officers surrounding the protest denying her leave to go to the toilet:

It also shows that quite clearly the Police were surrounding the Brexit-supporting contingent and tightly regulating their movement but pro-Remain protestors in-shot appear to be totally free of any restriction. Why is this the case? Surely, even if you accept that the protests should be separated, the Remain protest should be controlled in a similar manner to the pro-Brexit one?
The Police in the video seem to display little concern for the human dignity of protestors and it is hard to disagree with the assessment that they were treated like animals.
