Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

ESF Flashmob London - Must Be Stopped (and it was!)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
"They don't like it up 'em" to nick a phrase from the sadly missed Cpl Jones.

On 22nd November at 12:30pm, 200 Ecole De Ski Francais instructors are planning to flashmob in Parliament Square! It's a publicity stunt of course but I'm in favour of envoking The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 which imposes tight restrictions on peaceful protest in Parliament Square. After Part 3 of the 2011 Act came into force on 30th March 2012, it became a crime to engage in a ‘prohibited activity’ in the Square where a police or local authority officer directs you not to do so. Directions to cease doing a prohibited activity or not to start to do one can last up to 90 days.

I'm certain that anti-terrorism legislation can and should also be enforced in this situation.

If you feel strongly that their stunt is actually some kind of warped peaceful protest connected to the ongoing dispute with tour operator 'guides' then it is your duty to complain to the police (my mate is a Met Police dog handler so I already have the wheels in motion), first of all explaining that you don't like Johnny Foreigner invading our sacred places and taking the p155 in this manner.

I am in London that day so I'll be there filming.

Piccadilly, apparently. I thought the idea of a flashmob was that it happened unannounced and appeared spontaneous. They've announced it and got sponsors on board like Monarch Airlines. Anyway, think it would be fun if those aggreived tour operators made it hot for them.

emwmarine, but they do have an issue with a smallish British tour operator and they are currently prosecuting a case against them (see other threads for full details). Forget who is right or wrong for a second, at such a time it is the height of arrogance to stage such a stunt in such a place and they deserve for it to go massively pear-shaped IMO.

but you'd almost certainly get arrested for doing so! Not a great state of affairs is it? I reckon Boris must have something to do with this. He probably gave the OK.

No it's not. It is no different to a UK company promoting itself in a Paris trade show. They have a large customer base in London and it looks to be an imaginative go at drumming up custom.

There does seem to be some elements of anti French sentiment on here.

It's specifically a go at the ESF, which just happens to be a French organisation, so not anti-French.

A UK company paying for space to promote themselves at a Paris trade show is of course absolutely normal and perhaps you've chosen a poor example. However, Parliament Square is a place where lots of people would like to do some promotion (a peaceful protest is, after all, just the promotion of an idea or a point of view) but the law stops them and has forceably removed and criminalised many peaceful folks. So, I'd like to know who has allowed this and whether or not it has actually been officially rubber stamped and if money has changed hands.

Apparently, a pre-flash flashbash will occur in this pub ...

... at precisely 12 noon next Thursday, before the division bell sounds (see text) and drunken members of parliament - along with sundry slushNuts - stagger from the premises to vote on the unlikely legislation permitting promotion of French ski instruction on Parliament Square.

I'm humbled, Swiller, but hasten to remind you that the annual flashmob of the Ski Club of Great Britain will be held only 6 hours later. This organisation, which has endured two world wars and a public chat forum, can call further votes and resolutions on the day to defend our national freedoms.

Above all, the commanding statue of Sir Winston Churchill will remind the French exactly where they stand and slide on Parliament Square.



Give 'em a bit of stick, Sir Winston

I would love to see the ESF "Flashmob" (bollx...flashmobs are a surprise) disrupted. ESF are at the forefront of trying to prosecute a UK company for unpaid guiding, a service I have enjoyed many times over the years. We are supposed to be in a "unified free trade Europe" and yet the ESF come over here to promote themselves like that. Sod 'em.

Really spooky other than Winston was allies with the French in 2 World Wars, his family had extensive French links and he and seemed rather fond of them


"this is one of the most awe-striking periods in the long history of France and Britain. It is also beyond doubt the most sublime. Side by side, unaided except by their kith and kin in the great Dominions and by the wide empires which rest beneath their shield - side by side, the British and French peoples have advanced to rescue not only Europe but mankind from the foulest and most soul-destroying tyranny which has ever darkened and stained the pages of history. "

He was talking about an Austrian, the homeland of which seems to escape the vitiol sometimes evidenced here.
