The law is an ass, particularly

... the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

Last week the court found – in relation to 2001 protests in London - that forcibly holding thousands of people at the one time with no access to food, water or toilets for up to seven hours is not a deprivation of liberty.

When the police arrest a member of the public the force must provide food, water to drink and toilet facilities.

... it must be the rarefied Strasbourg air that has addled the brains of the poor saps we call European judges.
