Plane Stupid are Plain Stupid

Plane Stupid's latest act: throwing green custard in the face of Peter Mandelson may have attracted a lot of publicity, but they may have actually done the government a highlighting the lack of security around cabinet ministers.

Unfortunately for Plane Stupid, their publicity stunt will be remembered more for the green custard than for any protest behind it. But then their whole campaign is a joke, and has more to do with making campaigners like Emma Thompson and James Blunt feel less guilty about flying. It's ok for them: if the price of flying went up tenfold, they could still afford to fly, unlike the rest of us.
