Insulate Britain eco-loons have defied a court injunction blocking them from protesting on the M25, with activists from the Extinction Rebellion splinter group staging yet another road-blocking protest – this time blocking access to the M25 near Heathrow.
Footage captured by journalists at LBC shows police officers swarming to the scene to deal with the tedious activists, dragging them off the road.
“About bloody time” replied one member of the public, expressing the national mood.
“That’s the way to do it” declared another, while another called on the officers to “use more force.”
It comes less than a week after the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps had hailed a court injunction to stop the protests, warning those involved that they would now “face contempt of court with possible imprisonment if they flout.”
“You can throw as many injunctions at us as you like, but we are going nowhere” boasted group spokesman Liam Norton, who last week stormed off a Good Morning Britain interview with Richard Madeley in a strop.
“You can raid our savings and confiscate our property. You can deny us our liberty and put us behind bars. But that is only shooting the messenger” he continued. “The truth is that this country is going to hell unless you take emergency action to stop putting carbon into the air.”
Norton himself was exposed last week for having failed to insulate his own home despite his bizarre apocalyptic predictions about Britain’s future.
