Crusties "invade" Greenwich Park.

"Offices powered by wind"

Hardly surprising bearing in mind the beans-and-lentils diet of the great unwashed. Still they're unlikely to trash the Park as badly as the Olympic Equestrianism will...

I remember when they used to try & blockade the main gate at Kinloss when the Yanks arrived one TacEval with a C-130 load of concrete Nukes.One of them spat on the SWO who was trying to defuse the situation.Bad mistake,he hit her!

Well, that's a really erudite argument, Jagman! So they're a "bunch of misguided morons".

It might have escaped your attention, but folks are (in the system that's nominally (some would say laughably) called "democracy") allowed to protest at what they perceive to be right or wrong.

So as I understand it, they're only afforded this *cough* "democratic" right when YOU deem the subject of their demonstration laudable? I do have problems with that.

Where does Jagman say they do not have the right to protest? He merely states he has no sympathy for their cause and thinks they are morons - which is HIS democratic right. :roll:

I agree that they are misguided, however i suspect the real troublemakers will be the police.

Video taping everyone and arresting anyone who videos them.

Stop and search for everyone.

van loads of chav coppers just aching for an opportunity to put the boot in...

I actually see it from their point of view, you know greenyism...

It's just... why do they act like a bunch of cnuts all the time?

Correct Werewolf, I did not say they have no right to protest.
I don't believe I offered the vaguest hint that they should be denied the right. I do share Bugsy's opinion on the state of democracy in this country though!

I do think they are deluded and misguided but that has no bearing on their right to protest.

I concur.

They must have exceedingly understanding employers to give them time of work to do this sort of stuff. Unless, of course, they're just a bunch of scrounging doleys.

it will be safer neighbourhood style policing,

so no searching, videoing or hitting this time.

well not until everybody gets bored and we go back to normal.

happy days

I doubt it after the flak they recently got.
It will probably get out of hand and the scum will burn a few things and the old bill will be pilloried for doing nothing.
The next time they will then kick some scum bottom and again be pilloried, damned if they do and damned if they don't.

"We've got to the point where we have to stop talking about it and must do something about it instead."

From a van, mattresses are unloaded for the "wellbeing space", which according to one woman was where people can find "comfort, relaxation, and tea".
Two things:

1. Yup, because everyone travelling from miles around to camp is 'doing something'. I hope they're all carbon off-setting their travel as well - I'd quite like a new apple tree if someone fancies planting that.

2. There must be a real need for relaxation when you're just lazing around 'whooping the swoop' (whatever that is) all day.

Isn't it somewhat ironic that tree huggers have splinter groups? :roll:

And it's probably quite painful as well.
