A Bunch Of People Stripped Down To Their Dacks In British Parliament. It Was Weird.
Poms Are Odd
UK Politics. What is going on?
Yesterday, as British politicians continue to debate the country's exit (or not) from the European Union, about a dozen people stripped down to their Undies and jumped up on the balcony over sitting MPs to protest...something or other.
They had words scrawled on their mainly-naked bodies in marker pen. Some did a sort of dance thing. Others just held hands.
It was weird.
One thing they all did was bare their backsides to the MPs below, leading to some pretty funny reactions from the MPs who have more of a sense of humour than you might expect from Poms, especially Pom Pollies: "The bottom line is...", "...this cheeky intervention", etc etc:
Thankfully there was no "brexit" of protestors from their skimpy underwear during the protest.
Best reaction goes to former Labour leader Ed Miliband, whose wide-eyed shock is quickly becoming a viral meme. Here's a man who's seen some stuff. Or maybe he's just sick of "Brexit" (who could blame him?)
