The show apparently picks up where Thomas' 100 Acts of Minor Dissent left off. Over the course of an hour, Thomas regaled us with the ways in which he and his fellow troublemakers engaged in small acts of civil disobedience. Case in point: Thomas marched in front of the Houses of Parliament imagining the end of the British monarchy (which, unbelievably, is a crime punishable by life imprisonment under the Treason Felony Act 1848).

"No loitering" signs on a public sidewalk outside of a gated community also sparked his ire. Thomas' response was quite obvious: to host weekly tea parties for passersby, complete with homemade cake. While some of the residents weren't so keen on this, local walkers, joggers and cyclists enjoyed the gatherings quite a bit. A peek at Thomas' website revealed that his "no loitering" gatherings are still going in full force.
