Environazis attack power station

A group of environmental "activists" have attacked a Didcot power station and attempted to shut it down.

Greenpeace said that 30 of its members invaded Didcot coal-fired power plant in Oxfordshire at 5.30am.

Equipped with masks and food supplies, they intend to stay up there for "a few days", a spokesman for the environmental group said.

Invaders with masks? Terrorists, you mean. The Telegraph then puts a nice little plug for this bunch of subversives.

The campaigners are demanding that the Government phases out this kind of coal-fired power station and instead backs localised, or decentralised power generation, which is much more efficient.

Who says it's more efficient? Greenpeace? We know they think we should all have windmills and solar panels splattered all over our homes - but what happens when the sun don't shine and the wind don't blow? We'll all need diesel generators in our sheds. How bloody efficient is that? It isn't - not at all.

I suppose the police will now stand off until these creeps climb down or come out - then they'll give them a little slap on the wrist and tell them not to be naughty again. They should all spend the next 10 years in prison for their crimes - perhaps that will convince others not to be so stupid.

We live in, supposedly, a democratic nation. If you don't like something the government is doing there are legitimate means of protesting and legitimate means of applying pressure for change. You can even stand for Parliament yourself if you want to.

Those who behave otherwise should be treated as criminals and feel the full weight of the law. Acts of terrorism - even without the use of violence - must be treated harshly.

And that's your argument?

People like you remind me of why I do this.

You are unable to put even a moderately coherent argument forward. You can not structure a sentence and you wouldn't know a good cause if it bit you on your arse.

All you can do is swear and froth at the mouth.

Let me ask you a question. How would you like it if someone who disagreed with your point of view ran into your house, chained themselves to your bed and defecated in your kitchen?

People like you would be the first to complain if someone took "direct action" against you, but you think it's OK to do so against others in pursuit of a "good" cause (a cause unproven and even more unlikely). The only evidence you have to support your cause is that you THINK it's right.

I think it's wrong, but I don't go around - or encourage others to go around - invading Greenpeace offices or shoving dog shit through the letter boxes of Greenpeace members.

Get back in your tree.
