Met police officers are openly defying orders not to wear badges appropriated by the far right and linked to white supremacy. Mark Rowley banned "thin blue line" badges.

However, images have emerged of Met officers wearing the symbol late last month as they policed a stand-off between LGBTQ+ rights supporters and a rightwing group over a drag act’s performance at the Honor Oak pub in Lewisham.

You're fired!

Poster boys Laurence Fox & Calvin Robinson of TurningPointUK's Honor Oak Pub anti drag storytelling demonstrations have both now been officially sacked by GBNews.

#LozzaFox has been arrested and in custody over alleged incitement to damage ULEZ cameras.

TurningPointUK also allege that the Pub manager has been sacked but we are unable to confirm that.

A lot of P45 fallout. More:

Will they dare to pollute our neighbourhood?

After 5 consecutive months of protest, baiting and violence by TurningpointUK Honor Oak gets two months of peace over summer.

A statement from the target - The Honor Oak Pub:

The Honor Oaks Drag Storytelling and Drag Brunch is excited to announce that we will be taking a well-deserved summer recess for the next two months. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all the incredible supporters, patrons, and performers who have made the past few months an extraordinary journey.
During this summer recess, we encourage you to continue supporting the vibrant LGBTQ+ community and local drag performers by attending other captivating events and spreading love and acceptance wherever you go. Remember, the magic of drag can be found in every corner if you're willing to look.

Fascists are going back to Honor Oak on 29th of July. We saw what happened last week when fascists violently attack locals. It's important they are outnumbered at the next event to ensure community safety! This will take a cross-party effort!

We wish those who do attend the best of luck, and when we’ve recovered we’ll be back out on the streets.

We also implore the police to act and stop far-left criminals from attacking conservatives. If there is no law there can be no democracy.

Following the violent attacks on our activists over the past two weeks - which included a stabbing & an 18-year-old savagely kicked in the head - we will be not be at the Honor Oak Pub this month.

However, we’ve seen a protest has been announced for the 29th of July, but it’ll be run by a group of concerned locals rather than by us. To be clear TPUK has no involvement in this one.

A formal complaint has been lodged over the behaviour of Metropolitan police officers during a demonstration organised by Turning Point UK (TPUK) against a storytelling session by drag queen That Girl at the Honor Oak pub in Lewisham.

The mayor, Damien Egan, is also believed to have raised concerns with the Met following accounts of the policing at the TPUK protest last weekend.

His UK offshoot suffered a wonderful, strictly non-violent drubbing here in #southeastlondon yesterday. I guess they hoped to rally locals to a faked-up culture war. But nobody apart from the organisers turned up apart from 500 advising them to please go away. They did.

Fash demo this morning at #HonorOak pub Lewisham, the pub hosts a drag queen storytime. Organised by TurningPointUK - a pretend student organisation, their membership mainly being over 40 yo. Absolutely drowned out and outnumbered by counter-protesters.

Fake vicar Calvin Robinson was there and had "you're not a real vicar" sang at him to drown out his shite. Roy Brinkley showed up in his army hat to yell about 15 min cities and pothole conspiracies. Not welcome.
