Got attacked in my car last night in Brighton by a load of Critical Mass nutters, who weren't as peaceful as you might have imagined! I think they were a bit upset as the Police had made 15 arrests and used batons and pepper gas on them. Testimont to the strangth of Saabs; despite the B@stards trying to kick in the lights, doors, etc, etc, all they managed to do was to break the aerial and a wiper blade.

Just as well it wasn't me. I'd used the prodigious torque of the Aero to run over them. http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/eek.gif

Not much fun at all, glad you weren't hurt!
I've got nothing against the anti-capitalist cause, sure capitalsim may pay my wages but that doesn't mean I have to like it. I especially don't like the fact that owner of the company I work for (who is only 2 layers of management removed from me) is worth millions while I can't even afford to buy a house.
However when fanatics start destroying the property of, or assaulting innocent bystanders under the assumption "nice car, he must be a fascist", it doesn't them or their cause any favours. They should get properly organised and learn the gentle art of subliminal subversion rather than trying to bludgeon the public with their message and only succeeding in getting themselves branded as annoying, irresponsible t**ts.
