I know someone pointed this out in another thread (sorry, can't remember who or where!) but now it's in the Mail, so it must be true!

Days of the Faslane Peace Camp which protests against nuclear weapons may be numbered after 30 years due to a lack of interest | Mail Online

Now for those that have not seen it, imagine this. You are driving up a beautiful sea loch on the left, large houses on the right, a wonderful view all around - if it is not raining and you can see it!

Then just as you approach the Base, on the right you'll see a hideous hotch-potch of dirty and multi-coloured caravans and lorries in among the trees. It looks a mess and has achieved zip for the many years it has been there. But worse, the last county council actually supported it financially! It was anti nuclear......

As for the smelly and dirty bit, well, you only have to stand next to one of them for a couple of seconds to prove that statement.

So, on behalf of al the Helensburgh and local area residents may I say good riddance and don't haste ye back!

They might be back with new vigour; Anti-drones protesters' lenient sentence is 'invitation' to activists | UK news | theguardian.com
The lenient sentence handed to six anti-drones protesters convicted of criminal damage to RAF Waddington this week is "an invitation" for others to do the same, according to one of the activists.
On 3 June this year Susan Clarkson, Christopher Cole, Henrietta Cullinan, Keith Hebden, Martin Newell and Penelope Walker cut a hole in the perimeter fence of the Lincolnshire airbase and walked around inside for 45-60 minutes, handing out leaflets and planting a peace garden consisting of a fig tree and a vine.
On Monday Lincoln magistrates ordered the activists to pay £10 to the RAF in compensation, £75 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge. Judge John Stobart said he was handing down his sentence "with a very heavy heart" and told the protesters they were "dutiful people".
If it's OK to interfere with the RAF Waddington Model Aero Club from inside the Fence, it might be OK to do the same with the Bombers.

Never really understood the mentallity of these people. If I wanted to protest something that I felt really strongly about I would camp outside number 10 or as near as I could get. Worked at Faslavatory for 7 years (88 - 96) the amount of time we were confined to the buildings at knocking of time due to these Phuqtards really gripped my shit.

John Winton wrote them up in 'Polaris' -- long ago. Have these insanitary people now failed to breed their own replacements?

Ironic that the very thing they were protesting against, was what was ensuring their freedom to protest in the first place. That Polyarny peace camp didn't last long as I recall..

One of the ideas of protest is to draw attention and a way of doing that is to cause inconvenience. This is similar to those who say 'why don't teachers strike during the school holidays?'

Not a comment on the rights or wrongs of this specific protest, just, well... a comment.
