'Someone's scaled palace. Light the Bat Signal. Oh ....'

News In case you're missing the blanket news coverage, there is a man dressed at Batman standing on a ledge at Buckingham Palace. Three things I've noted from the tv coverage -- the moment when one of the negotiators smacked his fist into the palm of his hand ala the Sixties series the protestor's costume is referencing; his partner in crime (who was captured before entry) was dressed in the Robin costume from the films (red and green not available at the costume shop?) and that senior security officers have said they would have shot him as a terrorist if he hadn't been dressed like that. Which pretty much signals to terrorists that if they turn up dressed as Spider-man they can get on with whatever they're up to.
