Green Peace Beatdown

I tell you what, I wouldn't want to mess with the petrol traders of the International Petroleum Exchange (IPE) after hearing what they did to a couple of Green Peace protestors.

Apparently, the tree huggers had planned to storm onto the trading floor, creating such a disturbance that the the traders would be unable to communicate, thus paralyzing trading for the day.

It turns out that the protestors were beaten back outside of the building by the young traders (most of whom are under 25). One protestor remarked "We bit off more than we could chew. They were just Cockney barrow boy spivs. Total thugs . . . . I’ve never seen anyone less amenable to listening to our point of view.”

Of course I can understand why those thugish traders wouldn't want to listen to Green Peace's point of view, given the fact that they had brought in Fog Horns and other loud noise makers in an attempt to drown out the traders.
