An amusing protest

David Leyonhjelm swears at satirical protest group outside windfarm inquiry | World news | The Guardian

I like protesters who put a bit of creativity into it.

And incidentally - as Senator Madigan's "submarines are the spaceships of the seas" comment gets a mention in the article - I always thought he was unfairly maligned for that.   Especially in light of the fact that I remember reading of a science fiction novel that had a submarine adapted for use as a spaceship.   (I haven't read it, just I remember reading about it in a science fiction encyclopedia decades ago.  Looks like it was Harry Harrison's In our Hands, the Stars.)   Interesting what bits of trivia a mind can retain...
