Greenpeace nutjobs create "fracking site" outside David Cameron's residence

HAHAHAHAHAHA!   For once I am with the Greenpeace protesters.  See my highlighted area below. That is definitely a big "No No" ..... if we wouldn't want that happening to us then we have to protest that happening to others.

Nearly three quarters of people in Britain oppose minister's plans to strip people of their access rights in order the clear the way for fracking, according to Greenpeace.
Over 46,000 people have joined a legal block set up by the environmental group and based on the access rights homeowners have over the ground below their property...............
