Rage against the Machine.

TelePolitics Better to pour it on the chamber of commons and lords !

Bet that was expensive

What a fuel !!!

Oh no. I suppose the lefties blame Boris Johnson

Update: Police officers tackled a man who is believed to have poured petrol on himself outside the Houses of Parliament. It is currently being treated a mental health issue, rather than a political protest.

Corbyn ?

Guy Fawkes a little early 😉

not the most graceful way to die

I wonder if anyone in the first 14 replies thought about this person, their desperation and their mental state and just said fuck it, I’ll pretend I’m 11 and make a shit joke? Or just defaulted to type, god help their friends and relatives


Bet it was a Leave Cult Fanatic they would do anything to stay leave the EU. Bloody Leave Cult Fanatic 'Fire Starter, twisted 'Fire Starter!

Imagine the potential carbon emissions! Greta will not be happy...

What can anybody do if a mad man poured petrol over himself? He wants to kill himself? He should do it privately though, what nuisance.

I hope he has paid his CO2 taxes and offsets this with buying CO2 certificates!

dieadeath Was it Dominic Grieve?

Bet it was a Remainer Cult Fanatic they would do anything to stay in the EU. Bloody Remainer Cult Fanatic 'Fire Starter, twisted 'Fire Starter!

When the oil runs out and we all drive electric vehicles, will the equivalent protest be putting some AA’s on your head?

A Petrolhead
