Extinction Rebellion activists superglue themselves around Commons Speaker’s chair
Protesters tweet photo showing three members in front of Speaker’s seat as two others hold up signs
The campaign group tweeted a photo showing three women standing hand in hand in front of the green leather chair where the Speaker sits when parliament is in session. Two men stood either side holding banners.
One read “Let the people decide” and the other said “Citizens’ assembly now”.
The irony is that they show not the slightest interest in "the people" deciding anything. Of course, it's a traditionally totalitarian term, "the people", often comically so as in this case.
