Yesterday Earlier in the day at Henley-on-Thames, a naked man holding a fake Olympic torch ran ahead of the real Olympic torch route, basically in front of the whole town. A streaker in England? How is that possible?
According to the London Evening Standard, the man had “Free Tibet” written on his back. He was quickly tackled by police, as you see in the above. There’s another video after the jump, from a different angle, in high definition. Both are borderline NSFW, but the HD one probably slightly more so.
Youku censors have blocked the video. I wonder: for the nudity, or that other thing?
Actually it was today not yesterday
You’re right of course, but I always have trouble deciding whether to say “today” or “yesterday” when the calendar has just turned here in Beijing. I’m posting about a July 10 incident on July 11. I’ll append a change anyway.
I guess it must have been cold.
Wouldn’t it be more appropriate if his back read “Free Falklands”?
Well seeing as the Falklands have always been inhabited by consenting people of British descent I would say no. In fact, I would say you mock a very serious issue with your ignorance.
