Climate change nutters who block UK motorways should be arrested on the spot. Persistent offenders should be jailed. Enough of these idiots now. This morning, a group of cretins calling themselves “Insulate Britain” blocked slip roads at two junctions on the M25, causing chaos.
Some drivers left their cars and confronted the radicals. There were scuffles before the police intervened. Four members of the group have been arrested as I write this. Every one of them should be given one chance to come quietly. Those who refuse should be dragged away.
I loathe these goons. Why? Because when they are confronted and asked for the scientific evidence that man-made Co2 is dangerously warming the planet, they revert to sloganeering. They haven’t a clue.
You could choke on the irony. They speak of saving the planet for the children of the future. To accomplish this however, they want to turn the planet into a prison, where everything you eat and drink, everywhere you go and everything you say and think is monitored and ultimately controlled by the state.
They’re openly discussing ideas like limiting private-vehicle use, banning the consumption of red meat and introducing biennial covid-style lockdowns.
It’s madness and it’s going unchecked. The legacy media has declared the science of climate change to be settled, so as far as Joe Public is concerned, it must be happening. There are thousands of scientists and academics all over the world who oppose it, but they’re in media blackout.
I’m all for the preservation of human rights including the right to protest, but these evangelicals are not protesting anything. They’re building the walls of their own prison and ours too. It’s a type of religious mania. There’s no reasoning with them.
In the meantime, they should be treated the same as anti-lockdown protesters or any other protesters for that matter. When they block roads and bridges, they should be dragged away at the speed of light. Repeat offenders should be handed stiff prison sentences. Enough now.
