Once again this morning, eco-warriors are sitting in the middle of UK roads and preventing people from going about their lawful business. Sitting in the middle of a road or highway is unlawful. It is also dangerous.
Some motorists are exiting their vehicles and dragging the goons to the pavement. This is an exercise in futility. As soon as they return to their cars, the activists scurry back into the road.
Arrest them. I say perform a citizens arrest on the idiots and call the police. They are breaking the law and contrary to what Home Secretary Priti Patel said at the recent Conservative Party conference in Manchester, there is no need for new powers to deal with these deluded fools.
Existing law is sufficient. Make a citizens arrest and call the police. Under no circumstances should you assault them however tempting it might be. These people are unwell.
That being said, it can’t be allowed to continue. Repeat offenders should be handed stiff prison sentences or sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Enough now.
Enraged drivers are dragging eco-protesters away after they blocked roads at an industrial park near the Dartford Crossing.
