As Boris threatens to crack down on the “reckless and selfish” eco-mob, Insulate Britain will be imprisoned.
BORIS JOHNSON has vowed to put an end to the “reckless and selfish” eco-terrorists wreaking havoc on Britain’s highways.
The Prime Minister promised greater action against those who seek to “inflict turmoil and misery” on working people ahead of the Conservative Party conference in Manchester. Environmental protestors have been bringing the country’s highways to a halt for weeks.
Since the beginning of September, the radical group Insulate Britain has staged eleven protests on roads.
The activists have caused hours of traffic delays by gluing themselves to the roads.
Despite a High Court temporary injunction prohibiting such activity, the group has continued to block roadways.
Mr Johnson promised to put an end to the eco-warriors’ folly once and for all by increasing police power to put an end to the protests.
“This government will always be on the side of the law-abiding majority, ensuring the harshest sanctions imaginable for criminals who purposefully shut down key highways,” he told the Mail on Sunday.
“We’ll give the cops the authority they need to put an end to their rash and selfish behavior.
“The right to protest is unalienable, but there is no right to wreak havoc on people going about their daily lives.”
As he prepares to rally Tory members at the party’s annual conference, he sends a strong message.
MPs and party activists are dissatisfied with the lack of action taken against the eco-terrorists.
Insulate Britain is a subsidiary of Extinction Rebellion, founded by one of the company’s founders.
To help curb carbon emissions, it wants the government to insulate all homes in the UK by 2030.
According to sources, ministers are ready to change the Police, Crime, Sentencing, and Courts Bill to address the wreaking havoc.
The Bill has previously passed the House of Commons and is now being debated in the House of Lords.
Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, has already created controversy with the law, with activists accusing her of restricting the right to protest.
If voted into law, the bill would impose additional limits on some rallies that are likely to disrupt daily life.
They contain guidelines for noise levels and duration.
More than 300 people have been arrested as a result of the Insulate Britain protests so far.
Despite the fact that their actions are illegal by the interim high court injunction, they have pledged to continue.
“We are,” they declared in a statement. Brinkwire Summary News “..
