Whist members of parliament demonstrated that not only were they unsure of the difference between arse and elbow but also their unsurety of which and whose they are scratching:
Semi-naked climate protesters disrupt Brexit debate (theguardian.com).
Semi-naked climate change protesters interrupted a House of Commons Brexit debate and glued their hands to the glass of the public gallery, spending almost 20 minutes with their buttocks facing the chamber.
The 11 activists from Extinction Rebellion daubed with slogans on their chests and back and some in elephant masks in the Public Gallery of the House of Commons referring to climate change as “the elephant in the room” while MPs attempted to continue the debate while not bringing attention to it, although Tory MP Justine Greening could not resist congratulating Labour MP Peter Kyle for “fleshing out his arguments very well indeed” and Kyle in turn thanking the Tory MP Steve Brine for a “cheeky intervention”.
Police cleared the public gallery in the House of Commons and then removed the protesters individually, some of whom were carried out by officers.
The police later said 12 people had been arrested “for outraging public decency”.
