Hollywood star Emma Thompson received a brutal surprise when, while illegally protesting on a farmer’s field earmarked for fracking, she and her flunkies got sprayed with manure.
5-1-16 Update: New video has surfaced of this poo flinging farmer. This guy is awesome!
The incident reportedly occurred in the English borough of Lancashire this Wednesday, when Thompson and her sister, 2014 “Celebrity Masterchef” winner Sophie, tried to film some silly “Frack Off Bake Off” parody video on the farmer’s property.
“But this afternoon the landowner, who leases the contested patch of land to fracking company Cuadrilla, drove his muck spreader in circles around the demonstrating group,” the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
Local authorities soon showed up, but certainly not to arrest the farmer. Instead they asked Thompson to explain why she had violated the law by showing up on the farmer’s land.
“I’ve been aware of this issue for a while with my work with Greenpeace and it came to a head for me when David Cameron went to the Paris Climate Conference and signed on to the protocol and then on the sly at Christmas, when nobody was looking, gave the nod to 200 fracking sites in Britain,” she said.
I suppose she therefore felt entitled to just waltz on the farmer’s property and interfere with his business. By the same token, the farmer felt fully justified dousing her in some disgusting manure so odorous that it might take a couple loads of laundry for her to remove it from her clothes.
She’s lucky she was trespassing in Britain. Had she done so in the U.S., she might have faced a property owner defending his rights with something a little more dangerous than manure.
It’s funny though how liberals invariably take the wrong side of every issue, be it illegal immigration, radical Islamic terrorism or fracking, which according to the Brookings Institute offers an abundance of economic benefits.
Whereas trespassing on someone’s property and filming a dumb video offers no benefits, unless of course you enjoy the smell of manure.
