Embarrassed Taib Slinks Into & Sneaks Out of Oxford

You Can Run But You Can't Hide - Taib spotted through the Goldfish Bowl windows as he is bundled into a side room

"The protest certainly denied Taib his grand entrance.  He had been due to arrive in style, greeted by the University’s Vice Chancellor (the sponsorship must have been huge) to give the opening speech for the two-day conference, but he ended up being sneaked in past the protesters and ushered in through the back of the building.  A break-away group who spotted his entry surrounded his car and waived their banners in disgust...

...As Taib left after his speech the demonstrators’ success in photographing him both from inside the conference hall and the outside, through the glass, created havoc amongst Taibs security men.  Burlesque scenes ensued as they rushed round the building lowering blinds and pulling screens in front of the glass walls to protect their horrified boss from the glare of unwelcome publicity.

It was clearly a rare and unwelcome experience for Taib Mahmud, a specialist in managed press and  mass personal protection.  As the laughter grew on the outside, his party on the inside was publicly ruined.  That’s the problem with turning up in a free country Taib and we bet you think twice about doing it again any time soon."

LOL!!! Well-done and THANK YOU all you good people in London/NGOs who, even at such short notice saw the urgency to swing into action to help out in the protest Demo. Well done!

This certainly was a ‘drop water-face’ for this Sarawak rat, that he rightly deserves!
