Stick your message on our pod

Not all of us can scamper up an oil rig's anchor chain - but we can all come up with ideas, and we need yours asap.

As our occupation of Chevron's massive drill ship goes on, we want a banner slogan from you to explain what our politicians need to do about deep water drilling.

So far, Cameron's government has refused to issue a moratorium on deep water drilling following the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

But with your help that can change. We want your slogans - smart and funny - to make into a banner for the survival pod which is currently stopping the Stena Carron drilling ship for heading out to search for oil.

Basically it's a global brainstorm. And in a brainstorm, there's no such thing as a bad idea, so no excuses. And it needs to be short - the shorter, the better, so it fits on a banner. Send us anything that springs to mind. Send it on Twitter, on Facebook or in comments to this blog post.

So spread the word far and wide: the best idea will be made into a banner, right here on the Esperanza, and we'll get it up there on the pod, for the whole world to see.

You've got until 9am BST tomorrow (Thursday) morning - get thinking!

Anchors aweigh - Not likely today!

"Toiling for oil is boiling the woild!"

Join GP today and Travel the world. No wait you wont be able to, as almost every single kind of travel you need oil. Ok new one then. Join GP today and help loose millions of jobs and keep people at home because they wont be able to travel.

We'd rather be in Brazil

Hello Anne!!!

Come on Stuy_20, that's never going to fit on there! The key to a good banner is brevity. How about: Any spare chain? Or: We're 'anchoring after a cup of tea. Or: My other pod is an ipod.

Stop deep water drilling to avoid another spilling

Foil the oil drill!

How about "shark food enclosed" or,,,,,,,"soft centres inside" or,,,,,,,"contents has no value", or,,,,,,"my other craft runs on oil" or the best one,,,,"WARNING,,this package contains nuts".

Put drilling plans in deep water

Driller Killer: A video nasty produced by Greenpeace!

Hmmmm - this is actually quite hard to do. Here's some lame ideas I've had! - Pod off oil! - We dare you to go beyond oil

Drilling is killing!

Stena Carron is dead! Long live Cameron!

I know it isn't the message we want to get out but mr logicals slogan WARNING! this package contains nuts. I think it would make some headlines.
