Insulate Britain were back out on the roads this morning. The eco-warriors are demanding that the government spend billions on a national home insulation programme before the climate crisis kills us all.
The group had the cheek to ask motorists not to use the M25 this morning, to allow them to protest safely. Some motorists responded by throwing ink over the eco-evangelicals. One bloke leapt from his car sporting a set of bagpipes.
Personally, if I was protesting, I’d rather he punched me in the mouth than play the bagpipes in my shell-like. The protester was saved by the police before the mad musician could play a single note of “Scotland The Brave.”
One emotional 18 year-old protester told the police as he was being dragged away, that he was “frightened by coming wars and famine.” God love him. He believes it.
At the same time on ITV’s Good Morning Britain show, Insulate Britain member Tracey Mallaghan told presenter Richard Madeley that we have “three to four years to save the future of humanity.”
Madeley’s hands are tied. He is not allowed to challenge that bollox. The UK media, with the possible exception of Talk Radio, has told staff that the science on climate change is settled and that there is no longer any need to present the issue in a balanced and nuanced manner.
'How would you feel if that was your mother?'
'Is it because you're heartless or too scared to look at the reality of the situation?'@richardm56 clashes with Insulate Britain campaigner Tracey Mallaghan over the road blocking protests.
