Naked Climate Change Protest Disrupts UK Parliament Brexit Debate

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Trigger warning – Lots of naked this week in the name of Gaea…

Protesters disrupt Brexit debate by baring bottoms over inaction on climate change

Posted about 6 hours ago

While some view the British parliament as a symbol of political stasis since the 2016 Brexit referendum, other Brits have utilised Westminster’s symbolic power to press — literally and figuratively — for faster action on climate change. 

On Monday, members of climate change action group Extinction Rebellion stripped half-naked in the House of Common’s glass-walled public gallery during a Brexit debate, and some appeared to have glued themselves to the glass.

Nuala Lam, an Extinction Rebellion member who was present during the protest but didn’t directly participate, told British radio station talkRADIO that MPs stifled laughter as police cleared out the public gallery.

The following is a tweet showing a picture of the protestors;

I’m not sure whether the fact the protest occurred during a Brexit debate is significant, figuring out how to cancel Brexit without being named as the responsible party is pretty much the only topic of debate these days in the British Parliament.

The UK Parliament naked climate protest pretty much overshadowed another naked climate event in Australia, naked people swimming with the dolphins or something. As far as I can tell from the pics the Aussie dolphins declined their invitation to join the naked climate protestors.

They were prominently displaying from where most of their ideas originate. Perhaps they were hoping Parliament could extract a few more.

Messy and rather smelly ideas at that Rocket.

Seems i recall a study once, showing ones Emotional Quotient is inversely proportional to ones Intelligence Quotient Obviously these folks EQ appears to be through the roof or at least up to the balcony which would support your theory about their ideas.

This seems to be the occasion for that supposedly apocryphal story that was not in Alice in Wonderland, where the King made a joke and the Queen said very loudly “That was a JOKE!” At which one of the smallest knaves got up with a feather duster and rapidly dashed around the courtroom, dusting off the chests of the ladies and gentlemen of the jury and audience. “Ah!,” said Alice, “now I know what was meant by those court reports that said ‘a littletitter ran around the court.'”

Do they think baring their bodies to the global warming breeze sweeping in over the UK will make it go away? Perhaps they need to go and stand naked outside the Houses of Parliament and like King Canute order the warming to retreat.

They are all dressed exactly like the kings and queens of climate Armageddon festooned in their “new clothes”. It appears the Mann has exactly the type of physique and invisible scientific vestments that would qualify for this public display of public self ridicule.

Stripping naked is a great way to attract attention. No one will remember what you protested, so it’s utterly useless as a protest method, but you will attract attention. These are great “protests” because no one cares in the least what is being protested.

We all note of course, from the picture of the palace of Westminster, that it is right beside the river Thames, perilously close to high water level.

How seriously do UK politicians take climate change and the inevitable sea level rise?

Seriously enough to spend £5bn (£10bn judging by past public project overruns) on refurbishing the pile of junk.

Do we see AOC shouting “Don’t do it” at the British government?

Not a chance.

Same here in The Hague refurbishing the Binnenhof to the tune of several hundred million euros.
And we’re on the North sea of course.

Talking about the North sea I have to admit I love some skinnydipping over there but maybe it’s time to reconsider 🙁

There is something called the Thames barrier down-river.

The Thames Barrier is useful for tidal irregularities. It needs to be opened to let ships in and out you idiot!

A) They are called egocentric extrovert mental case flashers.

1) Why would anyone suddenly change their mind because some egocentric threatens to strip naked or almost naked in front of them?

i) Seize their shed clothing.
ii) Turn off the heat.
iii) The MPs should just ignore them until “ii)” has sufficient effect.
iiii) Tell the nutcases that this is how they should live from this point in time.
* Naked.
* Without fossil fueled heat.
* Without clothes dependent upon fossil fuels.
* Without goods dependent upon fossil fuels.
* Without burning dead plants.
* Without food dependent upon fossil fuels.
* Tell them that Parliament will publish their daily lives now and into the future. The world will watch as activists deal with what they want the world to do.
* Tell the activists that Parliament will allow them a taste of typical socialist government, as peons, without democratic rights.

Laughable though this is, the organisation behind it is not so hilarious. ICYMI
They seem prepared to inflict maximum damage to further their incomprehensible agenda, both to themselves and to the rest of us. While the police expend vast resources trailing the loser Robinson and the nutters at National Action and its offshoots these “green” organisations, with funding beyond imagination, metastasise within our society to further the ends of their puppet masters. There will be suffering.

I sincerely apologize Britain, but I can’t help but laugh at the banner picture on Tom Peck’s Twitter page where the MP’s at Westminster are all portrayed as monkeys. Buying into the climate alarmist narrative is bad enough (as many in the U.S. Congress have also done), but turning Brexit into the political crisis that it has become for you just makes matters all the worse.

Here in the U.S., many are probably tempted to portray the U.S. Congress (or at least some of them) the same way. Isn’t it wonderful what you can do with Photoshop these days?

Charlie Adamson
April 2, 2019 12:23 pm

Activate all of the distraction groups. Brexit scares the ever lov-in out of P.M. May.
She is at her wits end and does not give a damn about the sovereign British people.

The elite are so terrified that each new day they spend more and more of their distract-and-distress-the people ammunition. Keep watching and dig deep into where the money goes, who controls it and how it gets laundered through these activist groups.

Stay calm and apply your logic and research skills to discover the Wizards behind the curtains.

Most people who strip naked in public pretty much do it for the sole purpose of being naked in public.

Certainly not for credibility.

Like I mentioned elsewhere today, if you need boobies to attract attention to your story then your story must be pretty boring.

The rule works for everything visual – movies, television, print, climate change. If your story was interesting you wouldn’t need the tits to get people to watch it.

As an American, I’m just following Brexit with the barest of interest. Although I did click on this story expecting Femen quality protests, alas.

No. Ireland is a independent republic. Northern Ireland is a whole other issue however, since Adamas and Paisley aren’t involved anymore a “hard border” won’t be needed.

April 3, 2019 9:18 am

Well, that’s great — at least someone reads history and learns from it. The 1960’s scene in the US (particularly in and around San Francisco/Santa Cruz) involved a lot of protest — and to be sure to catch the cameras and the public’s eye, a lot of nakedness.

At the same time, down in Santa Barbara, California, where it is warmer than up in the City, female UCSB students were known to attend classes in bikinis and flip-flops and in mass sit-in on the grassy Quad, even less. It was never clear whether the lack of clothing was politically motivated — some just loved the feel of the California sun on their skin. (I will admit, I loved the feel of the California sun on their skin too….)

But if you wanted to Los Angeles papers to send reporters to cover your protest — you advertised that “naked hippies” would be in attendance.

That California sun at least added some sense to the nakedness (oh, that nice even tan….) — I can’t see stripping off in Parliament (where the sun has never shown itself).

Not the first to give up their clothes:

“his father kept him at home and then brought him before the civil authorities. When Francis refused to answer the summons, his father called him before the bishop of Assisi. Before any accusations were made, Francis “without a word peeled off his garments even removing his breeches and restored them to his father.” Completely naked, he said: “Until now I have called you my father on earth. But henceforth I can truly say: Our Father who art in heaven.” The astonished bishop gave him a cloak, and Francis went off to the woods of Mount Subasio above the city.”


Never underestimate children crusaders.
