Climate Activists Glue Themselves to Radical Green British Labour Leader’s Private Home

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Sometimes greens do things which even they struggle to explain.

Eco-warriors target Jeremy Corbyn by glueing themselves to his home in bid to force Labour green policies – but he REFUSES to meet them and instead sends wife out to return flowers given to him by protesters

PUBLISHED: 01:37 AEST, 18 April 2019 | UPDATED: 02:12 AEST, 18 April 2019

Climate change protesters glued themselves to Jeremy Corbyn‘s home today as they continue to cause chaos around London‘s transport network. 

Four activists who sat outside the Labour leader’s home in Islington, North London, said they were are ‘all Jeremy Corbyn supporters’ but want the Labour Party to go further than declaring a ‘climate emergency’. 

But Mr Corbyn refused to speak to the protesters and his wife Laura Alvarez was sent outside to return gifts of Easter eggs and flowers that had been given to him by the activists earlier. 

The protesters later said they felt guilty about their actions and 55-year-old Tracee Williams added the group ‘felt terrible’ about upsetting Ms Alvarez. 

It is unclear exactly what the protesters want Labour to do, while the party have not been spelled out what their green plans are to tackle the ’emergency’.

What rational explanation is there for greens to glue themselves to the private home of their main champion in the British parliament? After giving him and his wife Easter gifts?

My personal theory is, they all got a little confused because of the superglue.

Over the last week in Britain, eco-activists have been using gallons of superglue to attach themselves to every conceivable surface.

During this period they must have absorbed substantial quantities of cyanoacrylates, and mildly toxic petrochemical solvents like acetone, liberal application of which is the fastest way to dissolve a superglue bond.

Perhaps all this inadvertent glue sniffing is finally having an impact.

“acetone”

Wow, that’s like … a … hydrocarbon.


” … Acetone can be made naturally in the body in small amounts by the process of decarboxylation of ketone bodies. Synthetic acetone is made from propylene. …”
https://www.answers.com/Q/How_is_acetone_made

“… The two main sources of propylene are as a byproduct from the steam cracking of liquid feedstocks such as naphtha as well as LPGs, and from off-gases produced in fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units in refineries. The remainder of propylene is produced using on-purpose technologies such as propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and metathesis. …”

i.e. superglue remover comes from the products of fracking.

His wife was “sent outside”?? Brave of you Mr. Corbyn. However, never accept food gifts from activists! Never ever! So good call to hand back the items.

Piers Corbyn is the UK’s leading climate sceptic. And we have Monckton, among others.

Jeremy Corbyn knows about this subject. He doesn’t believe it’s the end of the world. But he also believes that AGW is not important.

A Mass is worth Paris. A recycling box is worth Downing Street.

But don’t think he will be another Maggie Thatcher in hyping climate alarmism. He knows the reality.

Closing the first day of conference, Corbyn told the Dundee audience: “It’s working class communities that suffer the worst pollution and the worst air quality. It’s working class people who will lose their jobs as resources run dry. And it is working class people who will be left behind as the rich escape rising sea levels.”

As a point of information, I always point out to people when they accuse me of being a “climate skeptic”, that I am nothing of the kind, I’ve been well aware that the Earth possesses a climate for a very long time, I merely doubt that Human activity is having any significant affect upon it! 😉

Yup. The nuts eat themselves. Is there a better illustration than this of why they must be stopped, crushed as a cultural force, and deprogrammed. We will not follow them down the rabbit hole to societal hell. Every little bit of this goes back to the failure of socialism in The UK, in Eastern Europe, in Asia, in all but a very few prison nations. The Left was discredited everywhere but found it’s salvation in environmentalism. That’s what the Green Party is. Socialists who saw the need for new messaging. The rot in western societies is deep. Deeper than it was during the cold war. It’s going to be a long march out.

Actually Ian, Piers Corbyn DID appear on the BBC. I was shocked too! He had a guest slot on Andrew Neil’s “This Week” programme which follows Question Time on Thursdays on BBC1 (until It ends when Andrew Neil steps down in July). He gave full vent to his feelings and facts on the programme on Thursday, 3rd December, 2015 – I recorded it. I wouldn’t say that Piers is the best exponent to have speak for our ’cause’; he lacks the air of authority, gravitas and polish of trained presenters. However, he certainly got his points across.

A few suggestions for green glued gobs:
A perfect opportunity get out the garden hose and wash the stains off the house siding. Use the pressure washer, if needed, for persistent stains.
Or just paint over the ‘bits’ that don’t match the house paint?
Buy a bushel of tomatoes and invite your best mates over for a competitive throwing event.
Bring the tower speakers out and play screaming heavy metal music for your captive audience.

In a related note, one of the new nuts in the US Congress has called on her followers to go the US southern border and go on a “hunger strike” to protest something or other. If they get a headline, I doubt any of them will lose any weight.
If they don’t get a headline and continue, no great loss.

These protesters should not have been using glue made from petrochemicals. They should be showing us how it’s going to be done in a post-fossil-fuel world. Glue will be made the same way it was in the pre-fossil-fuel days, from the bones, hooves and other discarded parts of worn-out horses. There will of course be lots of horses hauling stuff around, just as there were in the good old days, so glue will be one of the commodities that won’t become unavailable.

The old type of glue wasn’t convenient; you had to heat it to soften it, then wait for it to cool down and harden, and it smelled really bad. I’m just old enough to remember my father using it in carpentry; and I’m really glad it’s not around any more, thanks be to fossil fuel.
