Extinction Rebellion: New Trinity College Lawn Not Diverse Enough After They Dug It Up

Demented XR Youth Cambridge could not say whether the new lawn was safe from future actions.

A Cambridge college has re-laid its lawn eight months after it was dug up by climate nutters 'Extinction Rebellion'. Trinity College gardeners started re-planting Newton’s Lawn last Friday (October 23), eight months after Extinction Rebellion protestors dug up the grass on February 17 .

Working in a small "socially-distanced" team, the gardeners planted 20,000 crocus bulbs followed by 225 metres of fresh turf. However, XR Youth Cambridge, Extinction Rebellion’s local youth wing, are unimpressed with their handiwork, A spokesman for the demented brats said: “It’s almost as non biodiverse as before. It’s really not great compared to other colleges where they’ve sown wildflower meadows.”

Newton’s Lawn was targeted by activists in February in response to the college’s role in a major development in the Suffolk countryside. Trinity College was then reported to be in talks with the Port of Felixstowe about developing a lorry park on college-owned land. XR 'Activists' also locked themselves to the lawn’s apple tree, believed to be a descendant of the tree which produced Newton’s apple, while diggers gave its roots a wide berth.

Although plans for the lorry park were rejected in February, this has not deterred XR Youth Cambridge who 'could not say' whether the new lawn was safe from future actions. struggling to put a coherent sentence together a spokesman for the clowns said “I don’t think we can guarantee any lawn owned by the university or college is safe until they’ve divested and cut all their ties with the oil and fossil fuel industry,” then continued: "“A lawn is a status symbol, and it’s one of the reasons it was so controversial when XR Youth and XR Cambridge dug it up." adding "They should send a message which is more than just wealth and status."

Yes, makes perfect sense.
