Why Franny Hates Schoolchildren

One year ago this week Franny Armstrong was beaten up by a bunch of schoolgirls, and had to be rescued by London Mayor Boris Johnson – who happened to be riding his bike nearby.

Boris Johnson saves filmmaker Franny Armstrong from attack

Boris Johnson came to the recue of a high profile climate change activist and filmmaker who was being attacked by a group of young girls brandishing an iron bar, it was revealed today.

Franny Armstrong, the director of The Age of Stupid, described the mayor of London as her “knight in a shining bicycle” after he came to her defence as she was walking home in Camden, north London, last night.

She called out for help to a passing cyclist after being surrounded by a group of hoodie-wearing young girls

    We await comment from Greenpeace proclaiming the thugs were disguised operatives on the payroll of ExxonMobil, as is their tendency to say such things….. http://www.freedompub.org/profiles/blogs/splattergate-when-greenpeace

    I sure hope that shining bicycle was built from recycled materials.

    Brit class based insult – meaning lower class and badly behaved.

    You yanks don’t know what you’re missing!

    To much of a coincidence! The timing and players is such as to rule put chance. There is no statement that robbery was the motive.
    For no apparent reason a small group of teen age girls wearing hooded sweats (Hoodies) pushed Frannie against a car at the exact same time the Mayor was bicycling past so she could ask for assistance. The Mayor picked up the iron bar before riding after the girls. This would indicate the girl holding the bar dropped it and the Mayor took the time to stop his bike, get off, and pick up the bar before proceeding after the girls. As for timing, if the girls were thrill seekers they had time to do harm with the iron bar at the same time they shoved Frannie against the car and Frannie would have spent time recuperating from a fractured skull or broken arm.
    It looks to have been preplanned for publicity!

    • Mike Davis says:

      There are some that will say there is no proof. Frannie has a reputation for generating publicity to draw atttention to her.

Summers, the White House’s departing national economics adviser; the billionaire financier George Soros; Ernesto Cordero Arroyo, the finance minister of Mexico; and Christine Lagarde, the French economic minister. ” He’s coming to the rescue
