Designer/activist Dame Vivienne Westwood rode a tank to David Cameron‘s house in Oxfordshire this morning to carry out a fake chemical attack as a protest against fracking.
According to The Guardian, the protest was in response to last month’s announcement by the government that it would offer licences for fracking in 27 locations in Yorkshire, the north-west and the east Midlands. Westwood condemned the decision as “undemocratic” and said that Cameron was guilty of “nimbyism” – HA! LOVE THAT!– for exempting his own constituency from the controversial method of extracting gas from deep beneath the ground.
Shaking her fist in the air, and looking like she was about to deliver the Saint Crispen’s Day speech to the troops at Agincourt, Vivienne shouted to the crowd:
“Cameron accuses foreign leaders such as President Gaddafi and President Assad of supposedly using chemicals on their own people as a justification for regime change. But he is doing precisely that here in Britain by forcing toxic, life-threatening fracking chemicals on his own people against the advice of his own chief scientist.
“It’s time for regime change in Britain. Cameron plans to force householders to surrender their land and endure fracking underneath their homes! Britons no longer have any choice but to fight back!”
My God, she’s magnificent.
