Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British Official

Last week, an environmentalist protesting the expansion of Heathrow Airport threw a cup of green custard at British Business Secretary Lord Mandelson outside the Royal Society in London.

The protester, Leila Dean, 29, has been arrested by Scotland Yard over the incident.

T-Enterprise has now posted an online game lampooning the Mandelson sliming. Players toss custard at Lord Mandelson to score points. Hitting former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, however, may earn the player a punch in the nose. Prescott once slugged a protester who threw an egg at him.

So, people do beat the crap out of protesters.  Go Prescott, I guess.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British

Well it was more one punch that just missed the protestor but to be fair the protestor was a douchebag and Prescott took a swing while turning.

IMA FIRIN MAH LASER!!!

Actually public support for the expansion of Heathrow is split. Don't try to make this out to be that only the "evil" environmentalists are the only ones against it.

(If they spent money on catching real criminals then Mandelson would be arrested! He is the most corrupt politician going).

thats right guys.. good to know that the police are working hard in the uk to prosecute dangerous custard throwers.

*sigh* yes it shouldnt have been done , yes it 'could have potentially been acid' or something. but it wasnt .. it was custard.. geeeez. Spend taxpayers money on catching real criminal

Environmentalism is a cult/religion on par with Scientology. Don't bother asking "why" they do things, or if they've thought them through. Because they're mostly insane and believe that they're utterly infallible. Like all religious fanatics.

Anybody who's actually flown through Heathrow would agree with me when I say that this environmentalist is completly insane.

Heathrow has some of the world's heaviest airline traffic, with only >>>2<<< runways. It has been trying to build more for decades now and thanks to stuff like this, it's failed, up till now.

Also, building more runways would reduce the waiting time for aircraft in the air and on the ground [my records are 45 minutes ground and 2 hours air]. This would reduce the aircraft's fuel consumption and emmission and would actually have a POSITIVE impact. Chances are, she just lives nearby and wants to whine about the noise instead of not being bloody stupid and move.

Don't care what your cause is, if you're throwing substances on people and issuing threats, then you don't really believe in it.

Do these "environmentalists" look at the chemicals i nthe slime or red paint they throw on people? I doubt it, otherwise they woudln't do it knowing the dripping paint may go into a storm drain.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of ...

i agree with your point kinda.

 

But it was custard. Its food. If its good enough to eat its good enough to go down drains.

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of ...

This seems rather pathetic really. Whiny environmentalist... -_-

Re: Online Game Recreates Environmentalist's Sliming of British

Jack Thompson, Keith Vaz, all pale in comparison to Mandelson, the most evil politician around.

Goth_SkunkTake this with a grain of salt, but I'm hearing that in order to play Solitaire in Windows 10, you have to pay a monthly fee of $1.50.07/29/2015 - 9:28pm

Craig R.And even then, I'd say upgrade, make your backup media, and then do a clean install07/29/2015 - 7:29pm
Craig R.Personally, I'm recommending people wait 2-3 months at least before upgrading07/29/2015 - 7:29pm
Matthew Wilsonthat being said I am not normal, I took the upgrade and made a recovery drive, than did a clean install. most issues in os upgrades come from doing the upgrade. doing a fresh install fixes that.07/29/2015 - 6:58pm
Matthew Wilson@james so far hone, no major issues encountered yet. the only issue ?I have is my second wifi adaptor does not work, but I have my built in one. that issue is on netgear to fix though with new drivers07/29/2015 - 6:46pm
TechnogeekSora, the entire reason those clauses are being added everywhere is that they WERE upheld. AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, back in 2011.07/29/2015 - 6:28pm
james_fudgeHow many crashes so far?07/29/2015 - 5:46pm
Matthew Wilsonmost likly not since windows is considered essential, so unreasonable tos wont hold up. that being said, I am using it, and its prity good.07/29/2015 - 5:11pm
Sora-ChanThe question on those is can they be held up in court. From what I can tell those kinds of clauses haven't been challenged in court yet.07/29/2015 - 4:40pm
E. Zachary KnightPapa, Of course thre is. That has now become a permanent part of the EULA boilerplate template.07/29/2015 - 12:56pm
Papa MidnightIn case anyone is interested, there is a clause written into Section 10 of Windows 10's EULA that provides for a Class Action Waiver, and restricts the user to Binding Arbitration.07/29/2015 - 11:15am
TechnogeekNo, that folder is what gets used for the upgrade process. I already had the upgrade go through on my notebook.07/29/2015 - 10:35am
Andrew EisenMatt - And AGAIN, you keep saying "accountable." What exactly does that mean? How is Gamasutra not accounting for the editorial it published? How is it not accountable to its readership (which, AGAIN, is primarily game industry folk, not gamers)?07/29/2015 - 10:10am
james_fudgeThat's the clean install, for anyone asking07/29/2015 - 9:23am
TechnogeekAlso, it's the upgrade that's available for installation now. You might need to forcibly initiate the Windows Update process before it'll start downloading, though. (If there's a C:\$Windows.~BT folder on your computer, then you're in luck.)07/29/2015 - 8:46am
TechnogeekAdmittedly there's more room to push for an advertiser boycott when you get into opinion content versus pure news, but keep in mind that reviews are opinion content as well.07/29/2015 - 8:46am
TechnogeekMatts: There's a difference between "this person regularly says extremely terrible stuff" and "I don't like the phrasing used in this one specific editorial".07/29/2015 - 8:45am
