GREEN ACTIVISTS BRING DRILLING TO A HALT AT BALCOMBE
This piece from the Daily Mail rightly criticises the police for not standing firm against green activists who threatened direct action against the firm drilling a test well near Balcombe in the South of England. While I would not want us to descend into the heavy-handed reaction of the Egyptian military I do think we should be prepared to control numbers of protestors descending on Balcombe. For god's sake this is simple common sense.
