And are fined etc they are wearing jewelry that will be manufactured from metals using oil, clothes that will be manufactured using oil, the list goes on... So much for reducing the use of fossil fuels.
Shame she does not practice what she preaches

JSO identified them as music student Eben Lazarus, 22, and psychology student Hannah Hunt, 23, both from Brighton.

They called for an end to new oil and gas licences in the North Sea.

Wearing matching branded t-shirts, the two campaigners crossed a rope barrier and attached the alternative printed image over the top of the painting.

They then each attached one hand to the picture frame and crouched below, loudly voicing their concerns about the climate, before security staff cleared the room.

Mr Lazarus, who described himself himself as an art lover, said: "Art is important. It should be held for future generations to see, but when there is no food what use is art?

"When there is no water, what use is art? When billions of people are in pain and suffering, what use then is art?"

Why not respect their right to protest and just leave them glued there indefinitely.?

More today....

Why would they lose their places?

Their Mummy and Daddy are proud of them, and their Universities support their actions.

They are burning books tomorrow.

If they had set fire to an American painting would they be charged with trying to Singer Sergeant?

Yep leave them glued there as long as poss and then get lots of people in the room with delicious smelling food.

I suspect though that the staff were a little concerned by the fact that the TWA Teas had stuck their own pictures up on the priceless painting so wanted the trash out of the way.

Perhaps their lecturers can explain to them that an oil painting isn't what they think it is.

Not the most astute form of protest I agree, but, when it comes to protests per se, JB is yet another spiritual home for those for whom protest and protestors, irrespective of the reason or context, auto triggers the " incandescent with rage " mode....whilst happily ignoring they have almost certainly benefitted from other peoples protests in the past....remember, the charmless Ms Patel is on your side here chaps...until you feel like protesting yourselves that is.

No reason they shouldn't go to University however.

Kn C does not appear to agree with the idea that these pampered, globe trotting protesters should have been left where they were. Leave them glued to the frame for a couple of years??

Think of all the airmiles they would not earn, and all the polyester that would be saved.

I think it would have been very unwise to have left them glued to the picture frame. An important painting might have been damaged.

K&C Misses the point again.

The spoiled brats of the rich make a nuisance of themselves without any chance of bringing about meaningful change but...in the process they annoy people K&C dislikes. So that's alright then.

He is clearly a subscriber to the middle eastern prin iple 'my enemies enemy is my friend'. There are a great many things that young people could do (and indeed are doing) without the publcity but it seems like whatever gets the most likes on twitter rules the day and to hell with the planet.

it's not so much that as the "flogging is too god for them" attitude that's so prevalent here. Almost as if the posters here had never done anything wrong themselves

Butter, as they say, wouldn't melt

We all have opinions though
It would be a boring old world if we all trod the party line

Ah, but nobody here is actually causing damage to other peopleís property or inconveniencing anyone else whilst they do it.

well apart from the odd quip (nice Dave), it IS the party line. So Daily Mail; so dull.

Anyway she glued herself to the frame, not painting. No doubt Constable would have appreciated the courtesy.

Almost as dull as some of your posts Mr Talk
The observant among us will have noticed that those nice people also stuck their own pictures on top of the oil painting/canvas

If only there was a 'like' button. A bunch of old f***s banging on about things they know nothing about nor do they care to learn.
