    a pretty honourable tradition.  Many of our most revered historical figures put themselves in personal jeopardy to succor the helpless or needy.

    I perfectly agree there's a lot to be learned here - but I suspect we'll have one or two more impactful things to investigate as this goes on.

      It's an act of protest with an honorable tradition, and it's also stupid to run a blockade in wartime.

      No reason it can't be both. It's a courageous protest, but a really stupid personal risk.

      BTW -- are you British? I note your British spelling of honourable.
