Octogenarian protester arrested
Quirky 82-year-old ABC gardening guru Peter Cundall was arrested for refusing to leave the front steps of Tasmania's Parliament while participating in a protest against the construction of a controversial pulp mill. Congratulations to Mr Cundall for engaging in a totally peaceful protest and for his willingness to go to jail in standing up for what he believes.
Update: Gavin Atkins finds a skeleton or two in Cundall's closet and also discusses the merits of the proposed pulp mill. (Now that I know Cundall's a commie I say lock him up and throw away the key.)
