the green custard show

The Times reports that Jonathon Porritt has criticised Leila Deen for throwing green custard at Lord Mandelson (left).

Porritt is quoted as saying: 'Everyone knows it doesn’t change anyone’s mind. It is just for show. There’s a risk that this kind of frivolity reduces the seriousness of the cause.'

He adds, "The movement has always recognised the difference between the serious campaigning and theatre.'

(Porritt discusses drama and environmentalism with us.)
