Police Investigate 'Poisoned' Tea Whilst Ignoring Assaults by Bouncers on Tree Protestors

Local / Sheffield Jan 27, 2018 - 05:14 PM GMT

By: N_Walayat

Local

The mainstream press has jumped onboard the 'Tea Gate' propaganda story of the week, right from the local media through to the broadsheets by focusing on allegations that some Amey tree felling contractors were apparently 'poisoned' last year from cups of tea handed to them by residents. The Daily Mail names a couple, John and Sue Unwin whom detectives have spoken to following allegations made of worker(s) having fallen ill last October shortly after having drunk cups of tea that were handed to them by Dr Unwin, who vehemently denies the allegations as reported by the Daily Mail.


It is likely there will be many other innocent Sheffield residents who having handed tree felling contractors cups of tea over the past year will now be worried about the possibility of a knock on the door.

However, the real story is the not the alleged tea poisoning which in my opinion is just a propaganda smoke screen put up in the wake of this weeks real story of the events on Meersbrook Park Road, one of literal mayhem and chaos as hired Bouncers assaulted tree protestors whilst the police just looked on in silence ignoring the pleas of the general public to intervene as the following video illustrates:

Mayhem at Sheffield Street Tree Protests, Police, Bouncers and Multiple Assaults Meersbrook Park Road

Whilst both sides claimed assaults with the mainstream local media focusing on Amey's claims as that which best favours their interests. However, video evidence clearly illustrates the reality of what took place on MPR this week as set against propaganda and spin. The video is thanks to local resident Russell Johnson which shows multiple assaults on the tree protestors as they are punched and dragged out of partially cordoned off zones around the streets trees.

Darren Butt, Account Director for Amey "Streets Ahead" talking to Toby Foster stated that tree fellings had been suspended for the remainder of the week though also stated that they would soon resume, probably as early as the coming week. Whilst at the same time praising the conduct of his men, apparently even after watching footage of what took place on Meersbrook Park Road.

"My stewards and their conduct has been exemplary. Throughout last week and this week" - Darren Butt.

To which Toby Foster responded by referring to video footage he had seen "Was that an uppercut I saw thrown."
