INSULATE BRITAIN protesters have been mocked by ordinary Britons stopped on the street for their opinion by GB News’s Patrick Christys.
Britons have shared their frustrations at Insulate Britain’s tactics when stopped in the street and questioned by GB News presenter Patrick Christys. It comes after the climate change group caused long queues of rush hour traffic with demonstrations in London and Hertfordshire following weeks of similar actions. Insulate Britain is calling on the Government to insulate all UK homes by 2030 to cut carbon emissions.
“I can see what they are doing,” one man told the GB News presenter.
“But I think they are going about it the wrong way to be honest.
“Stopping everyday people on their motorway is not a good idea – people trying to get to work.”
Another passerby told Mr Chirstys: “You couldn’t really repeat what I would do could you really.
“I would ask them politely to move.”
Elsewhere another member of the public said: “You have the likes of ambulances being held up, you have people in cars with a medical emergency.
“I am not against what Insulate Britain are working to do, mind you I don’t know that much about the issue anyway.
“But it is the way they are doing it.”
“It seems a pretty small hill to die on if you know what I mean,” another man told Mr Christys.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps branded members of Insulate Britain “glued fools”.
Last Friday morning, protesters from Insulate Britain blocked a junction of the M25 motorway and a major central London road.
The climate activists said about 40 demonstrators were involved in its 12th day of protests in the past four weeks.
They sat on the road at junction 25 of the M25 at Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, and on the A501 at Old Street roundabout, causing long queues of rush hour traffic.
Mr Shapps told LBC: “It’s dangerous, it’s really outrageous, and actually, ironically, it probably adds to pollution as cars idle, waiting for their nonsense … for them to be unglued from the road.
“Existing laws need toughening up to get these glued fools off the road, and the Home Secretary has said she will do that in the Crime and Sentencing Policing Bill that is going through Parliament.
“In the meantime, I have been applying actively for court injunctions, which cover the national highway network. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
