    The woman at the end says: ”Rosa Parks sat down on the bus. The law changed, because lots of people agreed with her. And that’s what we have to do”
    What a load of pretentious rubbish.

    Sunny said this the other day about the most prolific detractors of this kind of twatish politics.

    if we didn’t have Spiked online, then we wouldn’t have a bunch of middle-class wankers who make money by publishing contrarian opinions for their own sake, and get excited another group of wankers who think they’re clever merely by challenging ‘the orthodoxy’.

    For example:

    Adversarial politics – where you just rubbish your opponants, is not a way foreward for the left.
    If they have a point I mean.

    You let me know when they have a point damon.

    Well this was certainly a point well made I thought about ‘just do it’ type political action, back during the Beijing olympics.

    Putting the ‘I’ into

    The arrest of four Free Tibet protesters in Beijing shows that Tibet still fulfills the fantasies of posh, disillusioned Westerners.

    It looks like posh Brits have found something to do in Beijing this summer besides dressage and coxless pairs. That’s right, the banner-drop ‘free Tibet’ protest – all the toff kids are at it.


    Especially as you brought up the ”middle class w@nkers” accusation about the Spiked people.

    Oh no, direct action against the Chinese govt in support of Tibet! Do these people have no shame? No time for anything useful with their time… like… maybe organise debating contests to talk about how global warming is such a farce?

    It’s easy to throw stones at people. But does anyone care what these fuckwits think? Not me!

    Did what protesters did in Beijing actually do anything for Tibetans? I doubt it.
    But if you (one) has the view that even the tiniest action is somehow worthy, even if that’s just shinning up a lamppost and unfurling a banner – then getting arrested …. then good for you, but don’t demand that everyone sees it such a way.

    It’s just a different view that’s all. I can’t stand Plane Stupid for example. Because they are so sanctimonious. What do they think they are doing by their antics? ”Educating us” they might reply.

    What prats.

    Hey, I’d rather have people who take the time out and the have the courage to do direct action than have armchair keyboard warriors on my side.

    But you know, each to their own. Plane Stupid’s aim is to keep the environmental catastrophe on the agenda. Those of us who see it as a big issue will applaud it, those who don’t, won’t.
