APPARENTLY some protesters (“You name it, we’ll protest against it!”) have taken time out of their busy schedules* just long enough to assault immigration minister Phil Woolas using a cream pie as an offensive weapon.
Obviously, as with all similar protests, this will now result in a change of government policy. I’m sure that afterwards, Phil must have thought: “Well, that’s really made me rethink my views – everything is so clear to me now…”
But the biggest insult is that they used vegan cream to make it. VEGAN cream! Not even some decent double or clotted! Even that horrible synthetic stuff in a can (known in Scotland as “skooshy cream”) would have been an improvement. What next? Gluing themselves to government buildings using bio-degradeable super-glue? Tying themselves to earth-moving equipment using locally-resourced, organically-grown, hand-weaved reeds, perhaps?
Honestly, standards these days…
