Plane Stupid Eco Protestor Glues Himself To Gordon Brown

by | 22nd, July 2008

IF you had to glue yourself to anyone, would you glue yourself to Gordon Brown?

A campaigner against Heathrow Airport’s third runway has attempted to glue himself to Gordon Brown at a Downing Street reception.

Dan Glass, a member of Plane Stupid, was about to receive an award from the prime minister when he stuck out his superglued hand and touched his sleeve.

Plane Stupid says Mr Glass, from north London, then “glued his hand” to Mr Brown’s jacket as he shook his hand.

But Downing Street said there had been “no stickiness of any significance”…

l’m sticking with Gordon:

Speaking afterwards, Mr Glass said: “My left hand was covered in superglue and I stuck it to his sleeve.

“I just glued myself to him and after 20 seconds he tore my hand off – it really hurt. He had to give it a couple of tugs before it came away.

“He was just grinning about it. He didn’t seem to take me seriously.”

Spokesman Graham Thompson said Mr Glass – a 24-year-old post-graduate student at Strathclyde University – had smuggled a small amount of glue through Downing Street security checks in his underwear at about 1700 BST. He met the prime minister during the reception at about 1830 BST.

Anything that you’re gonna do, I’m gonna do too:

Spokesman Graham Thompson said Mr Glass attempting to make Mr Brown “stick to his environmental promises”.

Plane stupid it, as plane stupid does…
