Oxted sandpit protest

This video is from the last protest on 6 June 2009 against the Oxted sandpit.

There was another protest today (and it was covered on BBC South East news). There’s a story over on the BBC News website about Al Fayed getting involved. It seems Mo’s done what the local council has not been prepared to do for the past few years - put some money into a challenge against the sandpit, which is unfriendly to the community and environment.  In fact it was a bit ironic to see the usual local faces popping up on the news - including those who did nothing to block the original application of the chalkpit a few years ago and did nothing until recently about residents’ anger at the town being turned into a route for heavy duty lorries. And yet they are now cheerleaders for the protesters. Or am I being a touch too cynical here?
