Going down?

Bishop Hill in Ethics, Greens

The highlight of the day looks as though it's going to be the sentencing of the Heathrow 13 - the gang from Plane Stupid who thought it would be amusing to shut down Heathrow airport for several hours. Expectations are that a jail sentence beckons.

The usual suspects are protesting outside the Magistrates Court and there will no doubt be lots of spurious claims that these were "peaceful protestors", as if preventing people from going about their daily business were anything other than thuggery.



Massive support for #Heathrow13 here Willesden for sentencing. A travesty and a disgrace if they are jailed. pic.twitter.com/HmamLzvV4x

It's about time these people were dealt with.

As always, it's good to look at the protests from a wider angle.

Six week sentences, suspended for 12 months, plus community service plus fines.

I wonder if this will put any of them off.
