I spent this afternoon at Speaker's Corner ,Hyde Park,(Marble Arch end) London where I spent 3 hours listening to political & religious polemics & often obscenities.The jostling & heated exchanges were at an all-time high. The first spearker I listened to was a Chinese man who fortold the "micro-chipping" of everyone by August - He then repeated his speech & said "by June" -a man sitting on his bicycle interrupted:"Hang on...... you just said August?" -he was mercilessly heckled by this man who was goaded on by several people to the point that the speaker could not be heard & therein anything he said was totally ridiculed. A Muslim speaker waved the 'Koran' in the air expounding it as "God's only word to Man" then two American tourists got up on the same podium & began thunderously preaching Christianity & the inhumane treatment of Muslims to 'Gays' - the heckling became aggressive & the Americans were pushed off the podium only to get back on & poke the Muslim man who In turn shouted: "Don't touch me;I'm not gay" -to hysterical laughter from the gathered audience. In another ring surrounding a speaker & Black man on a step ladder & swigging a bottle of wine began to castigated all & sundry whereupon a Portuguese white man rushed into the centre of the ring blasting out incoherent blasphemies at him. Most of us were shouting to the Portuguese man to go away & let the speaker on the stepladder continue but this man wanted to disrupt the speech. Two American women became infuriated at intimated at the:"sexual inadequacy of the Portuguese man....as per his jeans" to howls of laughter. This pushed him over the top & a tirade of insults traded off between the American women & him. The speaker asked his name "None of your damn business" was the reply & the comical put-downs were really funny. I only got personally involved in one argument. A Black man was shouting angrily at the Muslim speakers saying that they were 'fanatical' & should condemn 7-7...which they did, but all of a sudden four or five of them surrounded this black guy & were angrily discharging at him ...the black guy threatened to punch them saying: "Don't tell me about Allah,he's done nothing for me" . They replied : "What has Christ done for you???" He replied "F***O** don't talk to me". I said: " To Muslims 'Christ' was a prophet"...they agreed with me then all of a sudden a man who said he was from Pakistan grabbed my lapels & pushed me several feet backwards, shouting in my face 'what fate had in store for me'.I stayed calm but it took me a minute or more to get him to let go of me. Some really heated exchanges & not a policeman to be seen anywhere. Heyyyy I think I'll go back again,next Sunday!!!!.
