Wouldn’t have happened in my day.

What a plonker…. What an absolute disgrace!

International business magnate Rupert Murdoch agrees to give evidence to one of the countries most respected investigatory bodies – the parliamentary select committee. Murdoch is there politely answering questions when out from the wings leaps an incompetant anarchist armed only with a custard pie. How outrageous. As someone involved in radical direct action politics in the 1970s, I cannot think we would ever have attempted such a futile pathetic action.

Opening bid for hurling at ministers – Prime ministers even (as Edward Heath found out to his cost) – was a bag of indelible ink . Paint is good, so are eggs. To get so close and fall so short simply underscores that today’s youth just havn’t a clue when it comes to direct action.

Sadly, confined as i am to my hospital bed I couldn’t be there today hurling things. Hopefully the opportunity
will reappear. In the meantime if any of today’s lacklustre generation of political ‘jetants’ wish to salvage their reputation, suggestions on a postcard please as what should be thrown next time. It needs to be easily smugglable past police security and extra marks for things that would take two weeks to remove.

    Hmmm. Best suggestion so far from andrea. Since i am likely to be wandering the streets with a catheter for the next week or so…what better weapon than my catheter bag. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I mean, it goes through all security, contains its own supply of self-replenishing ammunition, and can be used at a distance. Just: unclip bag, take aim, squish…

    and for once, someone else taking the piss out on Mr Murdoch. Hey! If full enough, i get scatter, too: Murdoch pere et fils in one squirt!
