Oh, those fools are back at it again:
Heathrow protesters turn up on UK parliament's roof
LONDON -- Demonstrators climbed onto the roof of Britain's Houses of Parliament today to protest plans to build a third runway at London's Heathrow Airport.
Members of the group Plane Stupid reached the roof despite supposedly tight security at the Parliament buildings, including armed police guards.
Protesters threw paper airplanes from the roof and unfurled a banner declaring "No Third Runway.''
Police say five people have since been led down from the roof and detained. Officers say they are likely to be charged with trespassing, although protests at Parliament not cleared in advance are also banned under anti-terrorism laws.
Richard George, one of the demonstrators, said the protesters wanted to highlight what they called weak leadership from Prime Minister Gordon Brown over the impact of aviation on climate change.
Oh wow, how artistic of them
"The prime minister does not even have the courage to ask Londoners the simple question: 'Do you want a third runway?''' George said by cellphone from the rooftop.
That's because he doesn't have to you moron. The public do not own the airport and the airport can do wtf ever they want on their property. Get over yourselves. And regardless, that's what representatives are elected for... protest their offices until they make change or don't vote for them next election.... get a brain.
Brown denounced the protest during his weekly questions session in the Commons.
"The message should go out today very clearly that decisions in this country should be made in the chamber of this house and not on the roof of this house,'' he said.
George said the group gained access to Parliament as visitors, who must be invited by a legislator or accompanied by a security pass holder. They then walked through the building and went to a roof.
"We went up in a lift and walked out onto the roof. It was as simple as that,'' George said.
Brown's spokesman, Michael Ellam, said the government backs a third runway for Heathrow.
"The government supports the third runway at Heathrow in principle, provided strict environmental and noise conditions are met,'' Ellam said.
But he declined to comment on the apparent security breach.
"It's not clear what the full facts are at this point,'' he said. "Parliamentary security is a matter for the House authorities.''
The parliamentary department responsible for security said it could not immediately explain how the protesters were able to carry out the demonstration. Police said they were investigating the security breach.
Security in the Houses of Parliament -- home to both the House of Commons and the House of Lords -- has been tightened following a spate of intrusions in recent years.
Otis Ferry, son of rock star Bryan Ferry, and seven other men sneaked into the Commons chamber in 2004 in a pro-fox hunting protest. Months earlier, fathers' rights campaigners hurled purple powder at then-prime minister Tony Blair from the public gallery.
Sounds more like they're milking this thing for their own celebrity status in the media.... numb skulls.
Seriously.... did they actually think when they were going to do this "Oh, this will make change happen. They'll take us seriously now..... people will take notice"
Yeah, we took notice, that you're idiots.
