Climate change activists from a group calling themselves ‘Insulate Britain’ blocked roads leading to the M25, causing disruption to thousands of Londoners and, in the process, stopped an actual insulation engineer getting to work.
oh the 'orrible irony!
Video clips show the group blocking roads near the busy M25 motorway, preventing angry commuters from getting to work on time and prompting physical clashes.
The group is trying to get the government to commit to stricter insulation regulations, although in the process of doing so they actually blocked an insulation engineer from getting to work.
One Twitter user pointed out a flaw in their plan.
“A mate is stuck in this, the irony is we are Thermal Insulation Engineers (Laggers) who have been insulating Britain for decades but can’t get to work because of Insulate Britain protests,”
Others asserted that the group’s actions represented the behavior of “fucking retards.”
“I would have thought keeping cars stationary with their engines running would not exactly be good environmental practice,” another person wrote.
Whilst Carl Vernon pointed out: Another person highlighted how the group received police protection, while anti-lockdown protesters are routinely beaten and arrested by the same cops.
The protest followed two weeks of disruption by Extinction Rebellion protesters in London, a strange name for the group given that their demands are almost entirely being met by Boris Johnson’s government anyway. The XR demonstrators appear to be aware that they are “not popular,” but continued to repeat the same divisive stunts over and over again.
Extinction Rebellion, and presumably their OAP division; Insulate Britain, have been proven to be nothing more than Marxists whose real goal is to 'bring down capitalism', they couldn't give a toss about the environment, and the carbon they want to 'reduce' IS YOU.
Extinction Rebellion Could Be Classed As 'Organised Crime-Group' Says Government
Demented Middle-classed Marxist group Extinction Rebellion has described the move as “ridiculous”.
The group said associating it with the state’s definition of a crime gang as “characterised by violence or the threat of violence and by the use of bribery and corruption” was an insult to the thousands of ordinary citizens who supported its cause. Whilst Crusties dancing in central London may appear harmless, the disruption ER has caused over the past two years now runs into tens of millions. The attacks continue to be on legitimate companies going about their lawful business, and this has very little, if anything to do with preventing warmer weather.
In the latest stunt ER prevented several national newspapers being distributed. Defending its protests outside two printing presses in Hertfordshire and Merseyside, Extinction Rebellion said the government’s threatened reclassification was “hardly an accurate description of the thousands of ordinary people – the nurses, the doctors, the grandparents and others – who take part in Extinction Rebellion’s non-violent protests” seeing themselves very much as morally superior social justice warriors and not a bunch of middle-classed goblins trying to push their warped opinions on the rest of society.
More than 100 protesters used vehicles and bamboo structures to block roads outside the printing works at Broxbourne in Hertfordshire and Knowsley, near Liverpool, on Friday evening. Hertfordshire police said delivery lorries had not left the Broxbourne site as of 6am on Saturday, and that 42 arrests had been made.
The presses print the News UK titles including the Sun, Times, Sun on Sunday and Sunday Times, as well as the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday and the London Evening Standard. The Guardian, who support ER, was not affected, proving that it was not about pollution or consumption, but an attack of free speech, a classic Marxist tactic.
Boris Johnson and the home secretary, Priti Patel, condemned the blockades. It was reported on Sunday that the prime minister and home secretary had asked Whitehall officials to take a fresh look at how Extinction Rebellion was classified in law.
