Yet in this case, the dope is most definitely British. Just look at the teeth.
An environmental activist was sent back to the UK after arriving at a New York airport over fears that he had threatened the life of President Barack Obama.
Forget the Barry O'Blimey connection. He flew from the UK to America because...
Mr Stewart, who was due to participate in an anti-airport expansion talking tour,
He campaigns against air travel so he flew all the way to America to campaign against air travel. What an utter, utter dick. America has loads of people. Loads. More than even Birmingham although they aren't quite so tightly packed in most places. They don't need to import anti-air activists by air.
Besides, America is even bigger than Scotland so to get from one part to another overland takes days. It sometimes does in Scotland too, but that's usually because there's snow blocking the quick roads and sometimes because there aren't any roads.
If we couldn't travel by air within the UK it would be an inconvenience, no more. Now that we have to spend so long hanging around airports, travelling by train often takes about the same time anyway and the cost isn't much different. If Americans couldn't travel by air it would be debilitating.
Anti-air-travel activists now fly halfway around the globe to tell people they shouldn't travel by air and they expect us to take them seriously.
This is straight out of Monty Python. If only they'd thought of this one, it would have been right up there with the Parrot Sketch.
