‘Insulate Britain’ blocking motorways.

If the news was correct and my recollection reasonable, then I think it's been called out that the person acting as spokesperson on TV himself has a house with virtually no insulation. that may be fine, perhaps he doesn't heat that house at all so no wasted energy.

Another one just up the road from me again today. The news said one of the guys there has been arrested for the sixth time and is now in contempt of court for breaching an injunction. 

How are they arrested and let back out, with everyone with an IQ of more than 1 realising that they're just going to do it again. What do you have to do to be kept in on remand or jailed?

Yup, I believe so. He also once sewed up his mouth for some other protest I think I read!

This is all a bit strange.  There are so many other thing wrong in this world and these people pick on insulation as a solution to make the world a better place.  Solve our energy issues and climate problems.  Err I don't think so. 

Should the government (Or in the real world - the working Public) really be paying for these thing or should they just work on encouraging people to make this sort of investment. Which I believe has happened.  In my first home we got a government grant to help to pay towards insulation. Made a big difference too.

@ChrisJ Can't really 'cone-done' that sort of action, :ermm:.  After all, we (the taxpayer) paid for that vital piece of traffic management equipment which could have been damaged by her skull, :P.

I wonder how many houses they've got insulated so far?

All looked like nerdy white Guardian readers. Maybe part of the post Blair Islington set? Too much time on their hands. If what’s inside your cavity walls or lining your loft is the only thing that makes you want to go out and protest, then maybe life isn’t too bad after all?

What I do like most about all of this is it’s happening in London. Far far away from the glorious Herefordshire/worcestershire area where the river water is so polluted by effluent all the fish are dying.

Only here once

Sadly as time goes on people will get more and more pissed off with their rediculous protest. My worry is that, like when Extinction Rebellion sat on trains and were attacked by commuters, this could get violent.

This is a group of protesters who are so miniscule and have such a small following that they have to resort to this to get noticed. many are professional protesters and I would be surprised if any worked for a living. Funnily enough on an interview on Radio 5 live one protester was interviewed and refused to answer if she worked or what her career was because she was a well known paid protester!

Sadly their message is not a bad one, but by doing this they actually turn people away from them and their cause. After sitting on the A12 cause they were blocking the junction to the M25 last week I have absolutely no sympathy and infact its turned me off the whole debate! 

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

And again! 

I'd not be surprised if people start removing their insulation and throwing it at them now!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

I don't think regretting only having 150mm loft insulation will be the first thing on my mind mate in the hugely unlikely event this comes to pass. :huh:

Liam Norton, an Insulate Britain spokesperson, said: “In 10 years’ time when fuel crises are catastrophic, when the food has run out and when people are experiencing unsurvivable heatwaves, what would you be wishing you had done now? We think you’ll be wishing you had sat on the road with Insulate Britain doing whatever it took to protect current and future generations. So come join us on the road.”

The greatest risk is how foolish and usless the law looks.     Being totally ignored with zero effect.      The police arrest them, they go before the courts and are back at it again 24hours later.    Quite honestly Im not sure why every tom dick and harry nut job is not out there  gluing themselves to what ever  they fancy for what ever the  reason they desire.   Someone will in the end get hurt or worse as the public will deal with it themselves before the police get there.    Only needs the first person they step in front of to be having a crap day and  things dont go as they planned.
