Not sure if this is in the right forum or not!!

I've seen all sorts of protests re the 3rd runway, but this guy tried to glue himself to Gordon Brown. Personally I can't think of anything worse than being stuck to him!

Apparently he had his hand "detached" by a cop....I take it from whatever he was gluing himself to, not his body!


Me: (Lining up on final) I shall now select an aiming point. || Instructor: Well, I hope it's the runway...

Doesn't glue take a while to dry, anyway? I'm not exactly seeing how he was planning on doing this.

Quoting OB1504 (Reply 6):

Superglue is very fast acting. Presumably by a hand shake? I can see how smearing Superglue on your own palm, then shaking hands with the PM (while maintaining a firm grip for just a few seconds) would leave the two of them firmly attached. This would probably require a visit to hospital to have them separated, thus causing significant inconvenience for the PM and ensuring lots of publicity.

All in all, a good plan.

This guy must be pretty serious about his opinions to glue himself to the PM! But I must admit, it's pretty funny.
