I havent been in Oxford since I finished in the summer. Tell me what they have been doing?

I am the kind of person who was very concerned about animal rights as a child, and I still am though in a different way than they would recognise, I see things in a wider more enviromentally driven perspective.
But seeing the truely terrible behaviour of anti-animal testing protest groups while I was in the UK has profoundly alienated me from having any sympathy with them. I had been able to concede that I understood and even sympathised to some extent with their moral arguments in the past, but now they present no arguments, they only act as violent criminals, and the moderates among them (if there really are any) are just as complicit in the crimes of the radicals for they do nothing to stop them or even condemn them.
they tried to burn down the corpus boathouse i think.
and i think they actually did burn down the main university one.

I'm in. To all animal rights protesters: What is your proposed alternative to animal testing? Should we stop medical research and allow people to die instead of animals? What exactly is the aim/goal of these protests? I could go on but I have to go to bed.

That has to be the first truly serious post I've seen from 2+2.

I've only been here about six months, but has he done this before?
Nah, can't be. He must have just worked in a witicism so subtle, so rapier-like, so well-concealed that our metaphorical Radio Telescopes of Comedy are far too crude unsophisticated to detect it. I don't want to live in a world where this isn't the case.

Seriously though, it's good to see so many people supporting this, mostly as I intend to be the scientist on the receiving end of an Animal Rights Extremist's threatening phone call some day.

Nah. I was being entirely serious.

And now, here's the entire series of Charlie Brooker's "Cruelty Zoo".
