Jeremy Corbyn warned bill would ‘disempower’ public at ‘kill the bill’ protests

In the capital, hundreds of activists marched from Holborn past Downing Street to Westminster, chanting “kill the bill” to protest against the crime and policing bill being voted by the House of Lords on Monday (17 January).

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn spoke at the protest, warning that the laws would “disempower” the public.

“It leads to every protest becoming a conflict about having the protest, rather than what the protest is about," he added.
