Broken Britain - 5 :Citizens' Action - Peter Mandelson Gunged + a typical British scene today...



6th March 2009 - Leila Deen from the action group Plane Stupid (protesting about inexorable airport expansion in the UK) throws a cup of 'green custard' over Lord Peter Mandelson. It'll be in youtube.com You have to chuckle...

...and something we see all too often on British streets these days... (at least when you see the end, you realise there is a God!)...

I rarely see walls being kicked in, & there probably isn't a god. Some other perspectives:

TfL test new design for Bus Shelters?

Are you suggesting that throwing gunge at Mandleson is somehow a symptom of 'Broken Britain'?

No, David - it's just another example of what I predicted in an earlier blog: Citizen's Action.

It's summed up in the quote "I'm mad as Hell and I'm not going to take it anymore", it's the manifestation of that anger + pent-up frustration that so many are feeling today.

And sooner or later, the lid blows.
