Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British Official

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.

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... -_-

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

Andrew EisenThe story you just linked to? The story you asked if anyone had seen? Yes, THAT obnoxiousness. I've heard it parroted for nearly two years now.11/27/2014 - 7:57pm

Andrew EisenI've heard the same obnoxious horse poo for years. It's nothing new.11/27/2014 - 7:45pm
ZippyDSMleeAlso anyone see this? http://guardianlv.com/2014/11/anita-sarkeesian-unmasked-feminist-icon-or-con-artist/11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
ZippyDSMleeEvil within is a badly designed game.11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but you said "widens," hence my confusion. Looking into it, yep, there's a tweak to completely re-frame the image, adding more info at the top and bottom. You apparently need a fairly beefy rig to keep it running smooth when you do that though.11/27/2014 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilsonthere is vertical fov, not just horizontal fov11/27/2014 - 6:38pm
Andrew EisenWell, you can widen it to 3:1 or even 10:1 but I don't know why you'd want to. From what I understand it's the missing visual info at the top and bottom that some object to, not that there isn't enough on either side.11/27/2014 - 6:36pm
Matthew WilsonI think it widenss the fov, so you get to see more.11/27/2014 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenI don't see how as doing so would not add any visual information to the top or bottom of the screen.11/27/2014 - 6:04pm
Matthew Wilsonfrom what I read, getting rid of the black bars and stretching it out made for a better play experience.11/27/2014 - 5:59pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I hear, there's a ton of "look up and shoot at the guys above you" stuff in the game that the wider frame doesn't accommodate such actions well.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Andrew EisenHaving a game run in scope is not necessarily a bad thing but like any aspect ratio, you have to compose your shots correctly.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Evil Within was pretty bad and to make it worse the way the screen size made it hard for you to see even on a big screen it really hurt the game. Being Artistic is great but when you focus on art rather than what sells you run the risk of that happen11/27/2014 - 5:33pm
Matthew WilsonI kinda hope this is not true. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/11/nintendo_might_not_be_making_more_gamecube_controller_adapters_at_the_moment11/27/2014 - 1:34pm
Matthew WilsonI saw that. I wish people would stop preording, but sadly that will never happen.11/27/2014 - 1:26pm
