Security asleep?
 
How does one access the runway of an airport without getting shot by security?

One lives in a country where killing a person is not the first response to a citizen demonstration............

And how does one know whether the intruders are terrorists or idiot "citizens"?

Apparently came in by boat......................

and it's the mob protesting about Black Deaths - not sure if it's UK only, US only or some mixture

Police seem to be standing about doing little

the mob protesting about Black Deaths

In that case it's quite OK. People with "mental health issues" are allowed to do anything these days.

Why not just bring in a bull dozer and just 'nudge' them off the runway?

the mob protesting about Black Deaths
They are a bit late; The Black Death in London fizzled out around 1665.......

I hope none of them are carrying pots of yogurt.

clipstone1 6th Sep 2016 10:22

taxi an RJ100 up and down the runway they'll soon move lol

"Black lives matter". Now a front for the Socialist Workers Party but the nave idiots probably haven't twigged that yet.

They should try campaigning in Africa, where such ideas never seem to have been entertained in my personal experience.

fireflybob 6th Sep 2016 11:06

Surely all lives matter including those using the airport?

Continue operations as normal and they will soon bottle it when they see a 50t aircraft coming towards them.

ShyTorque 6th Sep 2016 11:15

I'm surprised that this wasn't sorted out in very short order. Are they allowed to continue to remain only because of political correctness about a racial issue?

flt001 6th Sep 2016 11:38

I would think they've positioned themselves in a way that forceable removal would result in injury.

Most of us would be happy with them getting their deserves but I image in this bonkers world they could sue the police for it. Despite it being all of their own making.

Idiotic fools.

No gunfire; no dead bodies; and they remain in one place protesting on the runway ...

Probably the best indications ... :)
