A woman was thrown out of Wandsworth Town Hall public gallery last week during a riots debate for shouting “Bring back hanging.”The woman stood up during a stormy council meeting debating the aftermath of the riots, evictions and police numbers. Police officers escorted her outside whilst she banged on the public gallery and shouted: “Bring back public hanging.”
