Climate Change Activists - "bloody" fools!

When blood spraying goes wrong...

BBC: "Climate change activists' plan to spray fake blood on the Treasury did not get off to the best start.

A hose from an old fire engine was used to spray the liquid at the 100 year-old building, but protesters quickly lost control of the powerful water jet."

I wonder how many different chemicals will have to be used in the clean up?

I wonder what they put into the water to dye it red?

Cochineal the food dye probably, in which case trillions of insects gave up their lives to help this bunch of turkeys.

It looks more like a protest against the tax on certain sanitary products rather than a climate protest.

Maybe Always sponsored it?

Maybe they should have had a practice with the hose running at full pressure first. Tossers.

It would appear to be criminal damage which carries a ticket of between 6 months and 2 years in jail. I wonder if anybody was arrested?

There is one serious point though. They were allowed to stop there in a very sensitive place because it was a fire engine - and therefore beyond suspicion.
What if it had been loaded with explosives?
I expect lessons will have been learned.

I thank you Sir.

Yes, it's been a good old Summer - Silly Season - all things considered.
Politics? - God knows, has been far too up its own arse for silliness - but thankfully these funny youngsters have stepped in to fill the breech with their pink plastic yacht on Whitehall (GRP Lay-up - that's Oil) and various protests slowing down traffic-flow in London (increasing CO2 emissions in the process) and then this; the Finale; a handful of idiots spraying their incompetent red gloop - a trillion insects died making it if NutLoose is correct.

Only having to be then chemically cleaned by those that do with all manner of "nasties" to get the street back to normal, and all of this done using a very high-emission antiquated Dennis Fire Truck.

*** sigh ***

Roll on Autumn - we can start burning logs in the fire and drinking Scotch and reading Eliot - and they can go back to Uni and continue discussing whether a tooth brush is sexist or not and borrowing 9000.00/ annum off us tax-payers to find out.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Democracy and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Silly tossers though they be.

"Tolling reminiscent bells, that kept the hours
And voices singing out of empty cisterns and exhausted wells."


Cheers!

That'll be the diesel powered fire engine that according to public sources is untaxed and probably uninsured, and of course we don't know whether the driver had the appropriate licence. Did they pay the congestion charge? Did they not understand that the area of London and in fact that street is a red zone with no parking allowed. The muppet holding the hose had obviously never been taught how to do it properly, it could have hurt someone flailing around like that.

But of course it was all for the best possible cause and little things like obeying the road rules don't apply to these people...

Just seen this................

Ladies & Gents, this coming to pass will be the final proof that the world has, indeed, gone mad!

What's really worrying is that all those "in charge" seem to permit this madness, even encourage it! Still, I'm sure all those nations who have absolutely no real environmental policy (a large number of countries) will be making radical changes to appease Thunberg (or, rather her puppet masters - who probably don't want things to change as they have got a nice little gravy train on the roll)!

Wow! I feel much better after that rant! Off out in my 3.5 litre Merc now - I think I may just check out the 0 - 60 a few times!!!

It looked to me that the hose separated from the nozzle under pressure, damn good job that it wasn't still attached when that hose was snaking around - I did see someone, a trained fireman, get hit with one of those when the handlers (trainees) panicked and lost control of it. It was not pretty.
I don't have a problem with protesters, but I do have a problem with idiots who fail to see the irony embedded in their own actions.

They gave it to Al Gore. They're obviously not fussy.

And you wonder why the generation coming behind you has to resort to strikes to gain attention.
