AN INSULATE Britain protester erupted at TalkRADIO host Julia Hartley-Brewer in a row over climate change and the group’s latest protests.
Insulate Britain spokeswoman Tracey Mallaghan hit out at the TalkRADIO host after she was torn apart for the group’s latest protests. Speaking to TalkRadio, Ms Mallaghan said: “Shame on you Julia. Having this platform and telling lies.
“This is why we get on the road.
“So we can call bulls*** on your lies! You’re playing a really dangerous game.”
The host responded: “You don’t seem to be happy to have a debate or conversation and back up what you have to say with facts.
“You resort to abuse and threats to the British people. Isn’t this part of the problem?”
The protester continued: “The problem is we have lied to for decades.
“For decades the government has refused to get on with the job of insulation and people like you are calling me absurd for telling the truth.
“If we have got on with insulating our houses, I wouldn’t have such high energy bills now.”
It comes as London’s transport network has been granted a High Court injunction against Insulate Britain protesters aimed at preventing them from obstructing traffic.
Transport for London (TfL) said the civil banning order applies to 14 locations around the capital including some of its busiest roads and it follows several previous injunctions against members of the group.
The legal action comes after protesters blocked motorway junctions for the 12th time in the past four weeks on Friday, causing emotional clashes with motorists.
Insulate Britain activists said about 40 demonstrators were involved in blocking the junction of the M25 motorway and the A501 at Old Street roundabout at rush hour on the last working day of the week, prompting long queues of traffic.
TfL said the fresh injunction was granted later on Friday afternoon.
A spokesperson for TfL said: “The safety of people travelling on the Capital’s roads is our number one priority.
“We have been granted an injunction this afternoon by the High Court which bans protesters from engaging in activities that obstruct traffic at 14 locations.
“This will help to protect London’s road network and everybody using it.
“We will continue to work closely with the police and other highway authorities in London to manage the impact on the road network, and would encourage people to check their journeys before. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
