How come it took 6hrs to throw these so called activise off the runway,10 mins should have been plenty.

They should have cleared a 747 in to land. I reckon they would have cleared off pretty sharpish :)

13 protesters, 6 hours? Half an hour to catch each protester? Haven't they got dogs?

You want to set dogs on protesters?

13-07-2015, 10:33 PM
Yes. Not because they're protesters, because I support their right to protest, if they do it legally; but because they're criminals. If police dogs are ever to be used on criminals, why shouldn't they be used on these criminals?

They are trespassers and have committed acts of criminal damage ( not protesters criminals who have put lives at risk). and I agree with the post should have cleared a 747 to land

Some of you people don't think anything through do you?

Don't you know how tricky it is to land a 747 on top of a protester?

Not as hard as it is to find a Liberal politician :D

Am I the only one that thought this was a thread about the gangway between blocks 2 & 3 in the JHL which is always blocked by all the numpties that sit in those areas XD

How much public money do we set aside for the inevitable excessive force suits that would follow when police dogs mangle the limbs of non-violent protesters?

Er, wire-cutters, onenil. Miles of fencing, nobody about, cut a hole big enough and then run like hell to the nearest operational runway.
Fair play to them, nice to see that not everybody in this country is scared to death of standing up (or in this case lying down) for something they believe in.

Somebody told me it was Blackpool fans?

were these the 'professional' protesters seen at just about every demo?

i would have thought airline passengers would believe they have a right to travel without being delayed by some publicity seeking idiots and criminals or do they not count?

Boris Johnson will do anything to stop the third runway being built.:D

Was he wearing his high viz jacket?

"i would have thought airline passengers would believe they have a right to travel without being delayed by some publicity seeking idiots and criminals or do they not count?"
The travelers do, of course, have my sympathy, but out of interest, how do you view the tactics of (e.g.) the Suffragettes and Gandhi?

Professional protesters?

Imagine they were, does that mean they were only doing their jobs? Why would you oppose people merely doing their job?

14-07-2015, 05:25 PM
If Ghandi and the Suffragettes were there, that would explain the delay. Some of them will be getting on in years. The police can't just go wading in to groups of confused elderly folk.

Boris Johnson stated that he would "lie down in front of bulldozers" to prevent the building of a third runway at Heathrow.

Direct action seems to be OK for the toffs to try and achieve their own personal ends but not for anybody else.

Anyone for numpty hunting?

Tally Ho!
