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.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British

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.

Matthew WilsonI know most of my friends first saw robotech when it was on Toonami in the mid 90s, but it is possible that a fan who watched it in the 80s are in a position to do it.03/27/2015 - 1:04pm
Andrew EisenRobotech was mid 80s. Fans of the show (who were kids when it aired) are my age and older.03/27/2015 - 1:01pm
Matthew Wilsontiming. anime only really became widely known in the US in the mid 90s. if we assume it was mostly kids watching it, they still wouldnt be high enough in managment to be given full creative control yet. it would still be another 5 to 10 years for that.03/27/2015 - 12:59pm
Andrew EisenI agree. Now what makes you think that there is no one in power who cares about (or has the ability to) make a good adaptation?03/27/2015 - 12:47pm
Matthew Wilsonits not about pratice, it is about people who understand it getting in to positions of power.03/27/2015 - 12:34pm
Matthew Wilsonallot of the comic book characters that have been turned in to good movies started in the 70s or earlier.03/27/2015 - 12:32pm
Andrew EisenWell, if it really does take two generations of practice to get it right, we'll never get good live action adaptations of anime if no one starts making them.03/27/2015 - 12:31pm
Andrew EisenWhat have you seen that would make you say that?03/27/2015 - 12:30pm
Matthew WilsonIt took 2 genarations of comic book reader before we got good comic book movies. I imagine that will be the case for anime as well.03/27/2015 - 12:28pm
Matthew Wilson@AE yes if they have people that understand the content give it a shot, but as far as I can tell that does not look like it is happening in this case.03/27/2015 - 12:26pm
Andrew EisenI understand the skepticism but I don't think "this will never work" and "no one should even bother" are very healthy attitudes.03/27/2015 - 12:11pm
Andrew EisenWhy would you doubt that? A lot of writers are my age and older, the perfect age to be fans of the content. All I'm saying is it's not impossible to get a good Robotech movie. In fact, it's more likely today than any other time.03/27/2015 - 12:11pm
Matthew Wilson@AE the difference is in the case of marvel the writers and directors clearly understand the source content. I doubt many of any of them are that way with robotech, or any anime for that matter.03/27/2015 - 11:10am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.playstationtrophies.org/news/news-15838-Sony-Cuts-the-Price-of-PlayStation-TV-Today.html Sony cuts the price of the Vita TV in the UK, still wont force developers to make their stuff compatible with it.03/27/2015 - 10:49am
Andrew EisenMechaCrash - It's true, there are a lot of examples of crap adaptations. But there are increasing numbers of great adaptations such as the Marvel movies. That said, it's certainly going to be an uphill battle at Sony, especially with Tom Rothman around.03/27/2015 - 10:45am
ZippyDSMleeOh live action crap...I dunno with hollywood being stuck in the 90s grimdarkblack mode I can not see how anything would work well other than SNK or Akira.. then again Akira is a bit of head trip...03/27/2015 - 10:11am
MechaCrashI meant Hollywood in general. If they did a Robotech movie, it'd just be a slightly tweaked Macross, because usually when people talk about Robotech, they just mean the first third. Nobody cares about the Masters/Southern Cross or Invid/MOSPAEDA stuff.03/27/2015 - 9:36am
ZippyDSMleeYes Macross is good..... robotech....not so much..... Now Pizza Cats that's the definitive TV dub, if not best dub ever I'd put it up there with COwboy Bebop just becuse the Pizza Cats dub is fun as heck and crazy,Medabots and Fighting Foodons are decent.03/27/2015 - 9:20am
InfophileAged well plot-wise, I mean. The animation is showing its age, but if you don't mind that, the plot holds up quite well03/27/2015 - 6:52am
InfophileRobotech may be 30 years old, but it's actually aged pretty well. Plus, one of the three Japanese franchises that went into making it, Macross, is coming out with a new series soon. So it's far from forgotten or out-of-date03/27/2015 - 6:50am
