Pink Floyd star's [KIKE] son boasts of 'beautiful scenes' as anarchists try to storm Eurostar platforms with smoke and paint bombs in Battle of St Pancras

The group 'No Borders' tried to storm St Pancras railway station to highlight the plight of migrants in Calais

But they clashed with police, who tried to stop them from entering the Eurostar terminal and pushed them back. Police brandished their truncheons at protesters as both paint and smoke bombs were thrown into the crowd. The protesters had attempted to erect barriers outside one of the entrances to the station but they were taken away by police as the demonstration became violent. Police confirmed two people, a man and a woman, were arrested after the pro-refugee protesters clashed with police last night.

Among the demonstrators was Charlie Gilmour, son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, who was jailed for his part in the 2010 student demonstration

He shocked Britain when he swung from a flag on the Cenotaph as part of a demonstration against student tuition fees, and last night Charlie Gilmour, the adopted son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, was back on the barricades.

Gilmour, 25, who was handed a 16-month jail sentence for his part in the 2010 student demonstration, was at St Pancras station in North London when around 150 protesters supporting refugee rights armed with smoke and paint bombs clashed with police as they tried to storm the Eurostar platforms.

Following the furore Gilmour posted a boastful message on Twitter which read: 'Beautiful scene at the St Pancras protest. Anarchists attacked by police responded by nicking their hats and vanishing into the mist.'

But on this occasion, Gilmour was not actively taking part in the protest. 'I was at the King's Cross protest as a freelance journalist and observer,' he told The Mail on Sunday.

'I was researching a piece about refugee solidarity in Britain.'

Despite not being involved, Gilmour has recently tweeted a series of messages in support of migrant groups.

Earlier this month he wrote: 'Borders kill don't ya know.'

It is believed that the protesters who clashed with police had taken part in a peaceful demonstration organised by the group No Borders to coincide with similar protests held in Paris earlier in the day.

The protesters tried to enter the railway station, which is the UK terminal for Eurostar services to Europe, to call for a relaxation of borders.

However, they were stopped by officers from the Met and British Transport Police as they tried to get on to Eurostar platforms and the demonstration turned violent when paint and smoke bombs were thrown.

The activists also tried to pour red liquid on the floor of the station in memory of migrants who have died trying to use the Channel Tunnel to enter Britain.

Eventually the activists were removed and made their way along to nearby Granary Square, where they continued to protest.

They carried banners reading: 'The people want to bring down the borders' and 'We don't cross borders, borders cross us.

A spokesman from British Transport Police said: 'At around 6pm a number of protesters arrived at St Pancras rail station and officers are currently facilitating a peaceful protest. Around this time a number of other individuals arrived at the station causing disorder, and missiles, including smoke bombs were thrown at police officers. This group were dispersed by police and officers remained at the station. '

The demonstration comes just a week after another protest by 250 people in support of migrants at the London Eurostar terminus .

'We demand that the UK and the US and the EU open their borders to all migrants and refugees,' said one protester, who declined to be named.

'We demand that Theresa May shuts down all detention centres and end all deportation,' the protester added, referring to the Home Secretary.

Despite his run-ins with the law, Gilmour, an ex-pupil at £11,000-a-term Lancing College in West Sussex, has courted controversy since beginning a career as a journalist.

He recently wrote an article about using magic mushrooms – a class-A drug – to help stop smoking. And when Jeremy Corbyn suggested he would work with Blairites in the Labour Party, Gilmour said they should be hung from lamp-posts ‘as warning to future war criminals’.

Gilmour was adopted by the Pink Floyd guitarist after the rock star began a relationship with his mother, writer Polly Samson. They married in 1994. His biological father is radical playwright and poet Heathcote Williams.

David Gilmour, whose fortune is estimated at £85million, said his son’s imprisonment was a ‘deeply depressing experience’. He said: ‘Seeing your child in a prison grey tracksuit is not something I would recommend to any parent.’

Miss Samson said seeing her son in HMP Wandsworth was ‘horrible’. The couple’s homes include a six-storey seafront mansion in Hove, a Sussex farmhouse and a mews house in London, while their son lives in Stoke Newington, North London.


"Polly Samson .. Her father was [KIKE] Lance Samson, a newspaper editor[1] and diplomatic correspondent for the Morning Star and her mother was a writer of Chinese descent, Esther Cheo Ying, who wrote a memoir, Black Country Girl in Red China, about her time serving as a Major in Mao Zedong's Red Army. Following a troubled childhood, Polly joined the publishing industry, through which she met the writer Heathcote Williams, and with whom she had her first son, Charlie."


Polly Samson: ‘It’s the most gleeful sort of writing there is’

The novelist talks about her recent ‘horrible times’, her astonishing family history and writing lyrics for her husband David Gilmour

Susanna Rustin, 7 March 2015

It is five years since Polly Samson published a book, and she wrote her new one, The Kindness, through what she calls “horrible times”. Two years ago her father, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany who came to England on the Kindertransport as a boy in 1938, died in hospital in “utterly miserable” circumstances after a mistakenly prescribed double dose of antibiotics destroyed his liver.

The year before that, Samson’s friend, the journalist Cassandra Jardine, died of lung cancer. And the year before that, Samson’s eldest son Charlie went to prison after admitting “violent disorder” for his part in an attack on Topshop that followed the tuition fee protests of December 2010, during which he was pictured on the bonnet of Prince Charles’s car and hanging from a flag on the Cenotaph.


Samson’s grandmother used to say the family lost “just two aunts” in the Holocaust, but since her father’s death, and aided by a trunk of papers she inherited, Samson has become obsessed with piecing together the truth. In particular she is interested in her great-uncle Heino, who killed himself in the 1970s and whose black-and-white photograph of painter Mark Rothko sits behind her on a shelf. The feelings of living people mean she must be careful what she reveals, but she has drawn on family secrets in The Kindness and recently went to Paris to meet the woman Heino loved in later life.

“My father was from Hamburg and most of his family got out, but like a lot of people he didn’t want to talk about Germany, the war or the Holocaust,” she says. “It was sealed off, and when we went to live in Cornwall” – in 1970 when she was eight – “ties were pretty much severed with everyone except my grandmother. I had no access to my Jewish family at all but they did all the things I do – they wrote, they took pictures – and finding out about them has given me a much stronger sense of who I am.”

Samson’s husband is David Gilmour, the musician, best known for being in Pink Floyd, with whom she has two sons and a daughter. Gilmour, who is 16 years her senior, has four adult children from his first marriage and Samson’s son Charlie also comes from a previous relationship, though Gilmour adopted him. They are a modern blended family, but what is striking about Samson’s background is that this is nothing new. Second and third marriages and webs of siblings go back at least two generations to her grandmother, an East End chambermaid of Jewish or Romany origins who married the scion of a well-to-do Shanghai family but was sent back to England following the 1937 Japanese invasion, leaving her husband to start again.

Samson’s mother Esther was six at the time, and she and her brothers went first to a children’s home and then to what Samson calls “pretty scary foster parents”. She survived to fall in with a group of Spanish communist students, marry a Chinese-American war hero and smuggle herself to China. There, she found a set of half-siblings, though not her father, and stayed for 10 years, serving in the Red Army and working as an interpreter for journalists including the Daily Worker’s Alan Winnington, who became her second husband.

Samson’s parents met in East Berlin, when the British Communist party gave her father the job of trying to get Winnington out of China, where he was stuck without a passport. They fell in love and had Polly before marrying in 1969, but Winnington remained a long-distance member of the family, with his son and Esther’s child by her previous relationship brought up with Polly, who grew up calling her biological father “Lance” and Winnington “Daddy”.


Samson’s parents stuck with the Communist party through the Soviet invasion of Czechslovakia and gave up their membership quietly in the 1970s. Her father went from the Daily Worker (now the Morning Star) to the Packet group of local newspapers in Cornwall, where her half-Chinese mother became head of a village school.
