Doofus Of The Day #1,048

Today's award goes to some red-faced Green protesters in England.  A tip o' the hat to reader Snoggeramus for the link.

Bungling climate change activists chanted slogans and banged drums outside a London office block today, only to discover the energy company they thought was based there has long moved on.

Protesters from a group called 'Reclaim the Power' picketed what they thought was the office of gas plant firm Drax in London's Moorgate this morning, closing the usually busy road for hours and causing fury among local workers.

But their chants aimed at upsetting Drax's bosses were in vain after it emerged the power company moved out of the building more than a year ago.

Ironically, the block is now home to Norwegian firm Statkraft, Europe's largest renewables generator, whose staff were unable to get into their offices as a result of the protest.

There's more at the link.

The protesters went the whole hog, too, locking themselves to doors, chanting, banging drums, the whole schmear.  They're the usual far-left-wing moonbats, chanting for "Revolution!" and "We've got to get rid of the rich!"  You can see them in this video clip, if you're interested.

The irony of protesting a non-climate-friendly company by harassing (albeit mistakenly) a very-climate-friendly company was probably entirely lost on them . . . but not on us - hence this Doofus award.

I wonder who was paying them to protest, and if under British Labour Laws, the payer is still responsible for the botched protest.

Inquiring minds want to know!

Oh that's hilarious! Not Darwin Award funny, but close.
