Colemanb-2 Often controversial (see here and here), London Assembly Brian Coleman has today said, according to a press release from London Assembly Conservatives, that he believes that the woman struck by a policeman during G20 protests outside the Bank of England is looking to make a “quick buck”.

Newspapers are reporting that Nicola Fisher has hired publicist Max Clifford with the aim of selling her story for £50,000.  Mr Coleman said:

“This is utterly disgraceful profiteering from someone who was on an anti-capitalist demonstration. Nicky Fisher turned up to this protest, which everyone said could be violent. She put herself in this situation and lo, she was hit. It’s like going gambling and then complaining that you’ve lost money. All right-thinking people will have little sympathy for her. The police were dealing with a very serious situation caused by some very silly people.”

On Platform today, David Davies MP defends the police's handling of the G20 demonstrations.  On CentreRight yesterday Graeme Archer said that the G20 incidents made the case for thorough reform of the police.
