Last week, an environmentalist protesting the expansion of Heathrow Airport threw a cup of green custard at British Business Secretary Lord Mandelson outside the Royal Society in London.

The protester, Leila Dean, 29, has been arrested by Scotland Yard over the incident.

T-Enterprise has now posted an online game lampooning the Mandelson sliming. Players toss custard at Lord Mandelson to score points. Hitting former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, however, may earn the player a punch in the nose. Prescott once slugged a protester who threw an egg at him.

So, people do beat the crap out of protesters.  Go Prescott, I guess.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British

Well it was more one punch that just missed the protestor but to be fair the protestor was a douchebag and Prescott took a swing while turning.

IMA FIRIN MAH LASER!!!

Actually public support for the expansion of Heathrow is split. Don't try to make this out to be that only the "evil" environmentalists are the only ones against it.

(If they spent money on catching real criminals then Mandelson would be arrested! He is the most corrupt politician going).

thats right guys.. good to know that the police are working hard in the uk to prosecute dangerous custard throwers.

*sigh* yes it shouldnt have been done , yes it 'could have potentially been acid' or something. but it wasnt .. it was custard.. geeeez. Spend taxpayers money on catching real criminal

Environmentalism is a cult/religion on par with Scientology. Don't bother asking "why" they do things, or if they've thought them through. Because they're mostly insane and believe that they're utterly infallible. Like all religious fanatics.

Anybody who's actually flown through Heathrow would agree with me when I say that this environmentalist is completly insane.

Heathrow has some of the world's heaviest airline traffic, with only >>>2<<< runways. It has been trying to build more for decades now and thanks to stuff like this, it's failed, up till now.

Also, building more runways would reduce the waiting time for aircraft in the air and on the ground [my records are 45 minutes ground and 2 hours air]. This would reduce the aircraft's fuel consumption and emmission and would actually have a POSITIVE impact. Chances are, she just lives nearby and wants to whine about the noise instead of not being bloody stupid and move.

Don't care what your cause is, if you're throwing substances on people and issuing threats, then you don't really believe in it.

Do these "environmentalists" look at the chemicals i nthe slime or red paint they throw on people? I doubt it, otherwise they woudln't do it knowing the dripping paint may go into a storm drain.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of ...

i agree with your point kinda.

 

But it was custard. Its food. If its good enough to eat its good enough to go down drains.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of ...

This seems rather pathetic really. Whiny environmentalist... -_-

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British

Jack Thompson, Keith Vaz, all pale in comparison to Mandelson, the most evil politician around.

Andrew EisenWell this is unique! A musical critique of the Factual Feminist's "Are Video Games Sexist?" video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K4s7cV4Us409/20/2014 - 2:41am
Andrew EisenSome locked threads. Some let them be. So, no, I'm not seeing a problem here. No corruption. No collusion. No ethical problem with privately discussing ethics.09/20/2014 - 12:48am
Andrew EisenAnd still, in the end, Tito made up his own mind on how to handle his site. All 150 or so members went off to handle their own sites in their own ways. Some talked about it. Some didn't. Some changed disclosure policies. Some didn't.09/20/2014 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenThere were two comments other than Kochera and Tito's. One pointed out the Escapist Code of Conduct, another comment was in support of Tito.09/20/2014 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenKochera privately expressed his disagreement on how Tito decided to do something. No, I don't consider that crossing a line nor do I consider the exchange an example of the group pressuring him.09/20/2014 - 12:36am
Kronotechnical reasons. Anyways, I need to get to sleep as well.09/20/2014 - 12:29am
KronoAnd he wasn't the only one pushing Tito to censor the thread. If Tito had bowed to peer pressure, we likely wouldn't have gotten this http://goo.gl/vKiYtR which grew out of that thread. Said thread also lasted until a new one needed to be made for09/20/2014 - 12:28am
Krono@Andrew So it's an example of Kuchera crossing the line from reporter to advocate. And an example of the group pressuring for censorship.09/20/2014 - 12:21am
E. Zachary KnightAnyway, I am off to bed. I will probably wake up to all of this being knocked off the shout box.09/20/2014 - 12:20am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, that is the type of reading too much into things that bugs me. Ben did no such thing. Greg had the last word in that part of the exchange. The rest was about how to approach the story and Quinn.09/20/2014 - 12:19am
Andrew EisenSo?09/20/2014 - 12:13am
KronoExcept that the forum thread wasn't harassment, and Kuchera continued to push for the thread's removal after Tito made it clear he didn't consider it harassment.09/20/2014 - 12:12am
Andrew EisenPersonally, I see nothing wrong with someone offering their opinion or the other person making up their own mind on how to run their site.09/20/2014 - 12:06am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, I read nothing of the sort in that email chain. I read Ben giving advice on what to do when a forum thread is used to harass someone and spread falshoods about them and others.09/20/2014 - 12:05am
KronoThat's exactly what Ben Kuchera was doing to Greg Tito.09/19/2014 - 11:58pm
Krono@EZK So you see nothing wrong with one journalist pressuring a journalist from a different organization to not only not run a story, but to censor a civil discussion already taking place?09/19/2014 - 11:56pm
E. Zachary KnightI write for a number of blogs and talk to people who write similar blogs all the time for tips and advice. I see nothing wrong with that.09/19/2014 - 11:50pm
