    I’m with them in spirit, but I think the old adage “two wrongs don’t make a right” applies here. I just don’t see this as a very effective form of protest. It seems like these guys are having way too much fun enjoying the perks of the mansion, which, I suspect, is why they are really there.

    so, they’re turning Saif’s house into a safe house? That’s pretty poetic.

    According to the article quoted it’s ‘Hampstead Garden Suburb’ not Mayfair.

    Hampstead Garden Suburb is not the same as Hampstead; they are two separate and distinct parts of London (although they are quite near to each other).

    There are probably other homes owned by dictators and/or their cronies in the UK. Just gotta look them up and take them. UK law enforcement seems to be implicitly allowing it.

    I think they need to remove their hats and sit up straight.
    (More formal attire might help also)

    This is in England, yes? All political issues aside, wouldn’t the police be required to step in once notified by the caretakers(s)?

    That’s the nicest looking squat I have ever seen. It would appear my peers and I were doing it wrong back in the day…
