here's a real, first-class, stick-a-fork-in-them-they're-done moment from (fG)Britain:
The threat of global warming is so great that campaigners were justified in causing more than £35,000 worth of damage to a coal-fired power station, a jury decided yesterday. In a verdict that will have shocked ministers and energy companies the jury at Maidstone Crown Court cleared six Greenpeace activists of criminal damage.
So a jury just told Greenpeace and every enviroweenie out there that they're free to damage and destroy anything that's 'contributing to global warming'.
The not-guilty verdict, delivered after two days and greeted with cheers in the courtroom, raises the stakes for the most pressing issue on Britain's green agenda and could encourage further direct action.
Gee, ya think?
Let's see, if someone breaks into your home and tries to kill you and rape your wife, guests, kids and all and you shoot them with the scattergun you've been allowed to own, you'll be in prison. Probably for the rest of your life. But these clowns have been given a green light to destroy because "It's more important than the law!" for them to fight globular warmering.
Barring revolution, non- or violent, Britain is screwed.
