BAA said operations at the airport were not affected and described the protest as "unlawful and irresponsible".
This is so typical of the limp-wrist banner wavers who call themselves environmentalists that its not even funny. They disregard laws put in place for the safety of all (like keeping retards out of dangerous places like airport tarmacs) to put a banner up on some property they have no right to even touch all the while dictating to others what they should and should not be doing. When will these maggots learn that you have put your money where your mouth is, I'm sure most of them parked their cars in a park and ride somewhere to go hop the fence and do their little mischievous deed. Its just a shame a careless pilot didn't power up one of the engines while they were screwing around and suck them into the intake, the cost of damages would be worth the humor in the long run. So next time some filthy hippy gets in your face and starts telling you what you should be doing to 'save the planet' smack them upside the face and explain to them why they are assholes.
