Emma Thompson, who won an Oscar, and her sister, Sophie, broke a court order so they could test fracking on a farmer’s land.
Thompson trespassed on the farmer’s land, and when the farmer found her and her sister, he gave them the scare of their lives by spraying them with foul-smelling manure.
The Daily Mail said that Emma Thompson and her sister were working on a parody of the popular show “The Great British Bake Off” for Greenpeace on the farmer’s land when the angry farmer came over with a truckload of manure to use as ammunition to stop the “woke” event from happening.
Thompson chose the farmer’s land for her project because it was going to be used as a fracking site.
She and some other people sneaked onto the farmer’s land and climbed over a gate to find a place to film their “Frack Free Bake Off” episode. Thompson wanted her film project to “show the government that we won’t let frac king destroy our countryside and make climate change worse.”
But the farmer didn’t want the protesters anywhere near his land.
When he saw them on his property, he jumped on his tractor and sped over to where they were gathering. He yelled at them to get off his property, and then he started driving his tractor around the protesters.
Then, he came up with an idea that has since gone viral on the internet: he started spraying the protesters led by Thompson with manure that would have gone to fertilize plants on his land.
Video footage of the event has been shared all over the internet. In the video, you can hear the protestors yelling at the farmer to stop spraying them with manure.
But the man doesn’t care about their cries and keeps yelling at them with the slow song.
But after driving around the group a few times, he stops and drives away, leaving Thompson and the others covered in smelly manure.
People in the area were shocked by what happened.
Kate Styles, who owns a cake shop in the area and took part in the pro-test, told the Telegraph, “The smell was temporary, but the effects of fracking on this community will be permanent if Cuadrilla gets their way.”
In the meantime, Cuadrilla, the company that fracked the farmer’s land, put out a statement from their CEO, Francis Egan.
Egan said, “It’s ridiculous that celebrities from London are trespassing on a farmer’s land in Lancashire, stopping him from working while lecturing us on where the UK should get its natural gas.”
The local police also said something about the accident.
A police spokesman said, “We were told this morning that there was a protest on land at Plupton Hall Farm in Little Plumpton.”
“A local neighborhood patrol showed up and talked to a protestor to find out what they were planning. It was not thought to be necessary or appropriate to keep a police presence at the site, but the resources are there to do so if needed.
