AdvertisementAnd Ben, 36, a geologist from Somerset said: 'Faced with 8,500 people dying from cold homes this winter and gaping holes in government carbon plans, I'm joining others and returning to the motorways.'We cannot wait until the next election, this is not a party political issue. We need to insulate and retrofit homes now to cut our carbon emissions or we will jeopardize the future of the country and the entire world.
'There is widespread agreement that insulating our homes is urgent and necessary and that government plans are inadequate. The only question remaining is: will you join us on the motorway to demand action now?'Meanwhile a spokesman for Insulate Britain said today: 'Insulate Britain has blocked part of the A40 in West London and a roundabout in Dartford this morning after declaring the M25 a site of nonviolent civil resistance yesterday. headtopics.com
'We are demanding that the government gets on with the job of insulating Britain's homes, starting with the homes of the poorest people in the country.'The action comes in the wake of a super injunction granted to National Highways on Monday, which prohibits people from Insulate Britain from interfering with traffic on any part of the strategic road network in England.
'This is one of four temporary injunctions granted to National Highways and Transport for London in recent weeks.'It comes after a spokesman said yesterday: 'In light of a national injunction covering England's highways, Insulate Britain has declared the M25 a site of nonviolent civil resistance and called for motorway traffic to be slowed.
'You can't imprison a flood, there are no unlimited fines against a famine, you can't bankrupt a fire. You can imprison the ordinary people of Britain, yet the lives of our children and those of all future generations hang in the balance.'By refusing to insulate Britain's homes, our government is also condemning thousands to death through fuel poverty this winter, while countless families will once again be cold and hungry.
'We are not concerned with endless injunctions. We are not concerned with our fears. We are concerned with fulfilling our duties and responsibilities at this 'period of consequence'.'The group added that the M25 will 'become a place of nonviolent civil resistance to stop our government committing crimes against humanity' from 7am today.
The Insulate Britain spokesman continued: 'This government, our government, is actively pursuing policies that will lead to the destruction of our country due to climate catastrophe.'In a free society, citizens have the right and a duty to rebel against plans which will knowingly result in the deaths of millions.
'Insulate Britain acknowledges the inconvenience and irritation we are causing to the public in our campaign, we ask that you understand that the days of disruption are necessary to force a government to fulfil its most basic of duties to protect and defend its people.
'Insulate Britain considers the UK Government to be in treasonous betrayal of this country.'The group has set out three demands – the first being that people 'do not use the M25, or if they do, speeds are reduced to 20 mph to minimise the risk of accidents'.
The second is that National Highways 'acts on its responsibilities to keep the public safe by enforcing this speed limit'.Three requests made by Insulate BritainInsulate Britain issued three requests ahead of its M25 protests restarting this morning. They were:
'People do not use the M25, or if they do, speeds are reduced to 20 mph to minimise the risk of accidents.''The Highway agency acts on its responsibilities to keep the public safe by enforcing this speed limit.''The police refuse to arrest us, as we are upholding the British constitution and they have a duty to refuse to obey any government that fails to uphold its first and most important responsibility: the protection of people in Britain.'
AdvertisementAnd the third is that the 'police refuse to arrest us, as we are upholding the British constitution and they have a duty to refuse to obey any government that fails to uphold its first and most important responsibility: the protection of people in Britain.'
The group also insisted: 'We will ensure that emergency 'blue light' access is maintained.'On Monday, Insulate Britain activists were effectively banned from all major roads in England following a major High Court ruling.Judges approved the application of an injunction against protesting on 4,300 miles of motorways and major A-roads, also known as the Strategic Road Network.
Anyone breaking it faces unlimited fines or jail for contempt of court.It had originally been thought that the application, made by the country's roads agency National Highways, would not be granted as it is so wide-ranging and unprecedented.It came as Insulate Britain brought central London to a standstill once again on Monday, blocking hundreds of motorists - including one driving his father to hospital for cancer treatment.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps confirmed the expanded injunction had been granted on Monday night.He tweeted: 'Insulate Britain are back, risking lives & ruining journeys. 3 specific injunctions are already in place, but today I instructed @NationalHways to apply for an injunction covering the entire strategic road network - tonight this has been granted on a temp basis by the High Court.
'The long term solution lies in changes to the Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill, giving additional powers against disruptive protests which target critical national infrastructure.'This includes unlimited fines & prison sentences of up to 6 months for obstructing highways.'
It is understood the new injunction will last until Thursday, when another High Court hearing will take place to decide if it should be extended.The original injunctions only applied to the M25, feeder roads onto the M25 and the Port of Dover.Members of the Extinction Rebellion offshoot have repeatedly blocked major roads, including the M25 and the M4, since September 13.
Transport for London also has an injunction effectively banning protests.Last week it emerged nine activists will become the first to be taken to court for allegedly breaking the original National Highways injunction, with a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice on November 16.
Following Monday's protests, the Metropolitan Police said 53 people were arrested after obstructing four busy streets across central and east London during the morning rush hour.The blockades - the first since a temporary pause for ten days by the group - triggered fury from Londoners, with many being filmed trying to drag the eco-warriors off the carriageway.

PC Andrew Harper: Widow warns criminals 'we won't stand for this' amid law change for killing emergency service workers
The police officer's family were prompted to act when the 28-year-old was killed while responding to a call about a stolen quad bike in Berkshire on 15 August 2019.
Since when is it acceptable to lay in the road anyway. I’m sure if get arrested for such a act so why ain’t they. If they held my day up I’d be hurly more than ink. Should have been plastered in manure I'm totally behind everyone's frustration over these idiot protestors. However, this is totally unacceptable...take your frustrations out on law enforcement!
People react badly to having their freedom of movement removed? Jobs, lives, medical needs removed? Shocker. To remove a people's right to freedom of movement is akin to terrorism, assault or kidnap. Excellent! But I would have pissed on them! I think it suits him especially since Halloween coming up At least it’s only ink and it will wash off but when they are Causing hours worth of tailbacks with Gas guzzling cars it’s not helping The environment very much. There are better ways
People should use FARB spray , perfectly legal & stains culprits bright RED for a week cos it doesn't wash off 🙂 what do they expect picking a fight with the general public who have done nothing why dont they blockade downing street or Parliament Go to Glasgow and stop a few Glaswegians going a bout there business , l dare you ! a face full of ink will be the least of your problems !!
So annoying, this is playground stuff! Do something useful and Fight the big corporations polluting the land and seas with plastic oil and excrement.
Half-term traffic chaos as eco-mob block road near M25 and A40 in West LondonA MOB of Insulate Britain eco-zealots have blocked a road close to the Dartford Crossing – as their second day of half-term travel chaos kicks off. Hard-working Brits are already stuck behind… Eh? I gave listening ears to her mentorship. It haven't been easy with my investment of $300 i receive $1000 in return I don't want a huge return I only wanted a trusted trader educator. I want to use this time to give due appreciation to Mrs Nichelle_11 East
I would love to wash it off with a high pressure water cannon “Drivers”…it was one person “Hurl ink”…they squeezed it from a refil pot This is still a story without the embellishments, so ridiculous. 😮 Hahaha WHEEEYYYY. fuck daily mail obviously too Great shot that 👍 Mr Inky is his new name! Good 🤣🤣 Soon all protesters will be vilified and all protesting will be made illegal and that's when the government will do whatever they want to do and no of us will be able to do a single thing about it. And yet there are a lot of people complaining about government control at the mo !
Waste of ink, may I suggest next time human excrement. Fabulous.
Kanye West takes off prosthetic disguise to reveal bizarre buzz cutKanye - who officially changed his name to Ye last week - showed off his shaggy haircut after fans teased online that daughter North was responsible for the new look. Maybe he has alopecia Any day now
That’s Marylin Manson in a downpour 🤔 Just fine them £10,000. Most of the appear to be retired with nothing else to do, so have taken up a cause. 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿 Good A tyre track would look better. Why don't these people get on a plane to China and glue themselves to the highway in Beijing where the main pollution comes from instead of abusing our good nature
Never take on a squid. It was an angry squid from Squid Game that did it. And posts like this are just giving them the exposure they want 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 what everyone should do, there a bunch of hypocrites InsulateBritain
9 Of The Best Brunch Spots In LondonHere’s where to get your Bloody Mary and eggs Benedict fix this weekend.
Instead of being in the arse for the people just trying to get about with their normal day they should do it near to Downing Street cause agro go for the PM Well deserved ink!! If they want some protest why they don’t sit on the street st N10 and protest as much as they want and not block the roads putting themselves into the risk and delay the traffic. This is not how you solve the problems!! This is stupid!
The remake of brave heart looks a bit shite. Ink is not what I would be throwing at the arrogant old twat! Good Furious drivers? Shouldn’t that say f’ing bullies? Mike Tyson is looking old now isn’t he Drive a diesel Who carries ink in their car? Possibly a supporter of IB to garner such headlines.
Climate activists 'occupy' London Science Museum over fossil fuel sponsorshipThe group shared photos showing sleeping bags rolled out in the museum Sleeping bags are usually made with nylon. By buying those sleeping bags, they are supporting big oil
All retired with big fat pensions and stopping folk working selfish bastards 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Good on them it should be a permanent die then everyone will know who these clowns are 👍 I feel terrible. If been trying to get to him with face wipes. I’m stuck In traffic. I could be a while.😉 It’s ink the now one day it might be something more serious then they will need to sit back and ask if it was worth it 🤦🏻♂️ mental Bastards
'Furious drivers hurl ink' Really?! It was one man who drizzled ink. A man who appeared to be on foot. None of those alleged to have been attacked reacted in any way whilst it was happening. The whole thing feels staged. An attempt to garner public sympathy perhaps. 🖋 Fantastic. tattoo Haha slap it him 👍
Got what he deserves Serves him self right
Joe Manchin pushes for climate cuts as West Virginia battered by crisisThe conservative Democrat is busy trying to strip out many of the policies to tackle the problems his home state is facing Joe Manchin is the worst thing that ever happened to W. VA & the U.S. Senate. He's a wolf in sheep's clothing & a detriment to Biden's transformative agenda. Manchin & Sinema will go down in history as the Benedict Arnolds, of the Democratic Party. They r opposed to everything! I gave listening ears to her mentorship.

In di go? William Wallace 🤣🤣 Looks better than the glue you use Shame it was only ink Good Plays silly games , win silly prizes 🤡 Is he crips or bloods? Brilliant hahaha Good on them Bravo Sir 👏🏻👏🏻well done
Influence of the unknowable may be only lesson from Moyes’s success at West HamSuccess of David Moyes’s second spell as West Ham manager is confounding the bulk of popular sentiment at the time of his appointment and possibly even his own expectations, but what can be learned from it, if anything? Wonder would he go back to Man Utd? I'd say they're sorry they didn't give him more time!
🙄 These pricks are causing misery. They are responsible for at least one death too. My son was late for his first day at university because they blocked Jctn 10 on the M25 and they also caused ££££ of damage to his car, because of the blue paint they threw everywhere… FUCK EM 🤬 Should have been a bucket. 👍
Halloween time!! 🤣🤣🤣 They keep arresting the “protesters” but they never prosecute them. That’s the problem. Glad people are protesting back. Great idea. Gives us a chance to recognise these activists as they go about their lives. Maybe we will get the chance to return the favour and hold them up somehow.
still remember the ozone layer conspiracy perpetuated by Dupont, all fake, and these idiots falling under the same crap and are to blind to follow the money where all this is benefitting the billionaires, just like Dupont did back in the day That’s a peaceful protest I fully support Trick or Treat…..? Milk at Bradford council next
squid game None on glasses… staged sillyoldtwat Bath and early night for him Inksulate Britain, cyan of the times!🙈🤣 Am sure that this “motorist” can be charged with assault? Darth Maul hasn’t aged well Not 'furious drivers' but one malicious person who thought it would be a brave and appropriate act to assault peaceful, elderly, climate justice protesters. If these, instead had been police stopping him going down a particular road this thug probably wouldn't have assaulted them
These protesters are doing nothing for their cause, they are just causing the hard working people to despise them. Fine them so heavily, they’ll never be able to afford to do it again!!
Just all turn your cars around reverse as close as possible to them and Rev them engines let them suck in the fumes for as long it takes they’ll soon fuck off Wait until we are all protesting when there is no taxi drivers or busses and petrol gets even higher and congestion chargers are brought into more places. This is how people react to something they don’t agree with but will sure as shit want backing up when they finally av enough
If you think about it, they are protesting against climate change by causing traffic jams, which causes more pollution than the cars just getting to there destinations normally. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 👍 Last year Boris Johnson killed our senior citizens, this week police & elderly abusers attacked seniors citizen. Mosley’s daily mail tries to justify elderly abuse, what a time to be alive in Tory Britain, where people worry for a 95 year old but approve of attacks on the old.
So can't wait to see Glasgow response haha I want a genuine answer, can Britain First follow this course of action? If not, with the ease InsulateBritainLoonies have then why not? This lot are like BLM - funded agitators Do you know what it is yet
🤣🤣 Thought is was a shit Halloween costume 😂 Rorschachs took a dive. Good enough for him. This type of shit helps no one. Thus should be treated with the exact contempt they deserve. Oh dear how sad, never mind! Much deserved 👏 Good Good I carry a chemical toilet in my van. Beware. Haha... Long may it continue
i'd be throwing something a lot more stronger than ink. Utter wankers. I total support their cause. But they are not going to get anywhere behaving like aged students. Marked as a road blocker for weeks to come. Try washing that off ! 😂🤣 Shouldn’t be sat on the road. Serves him right.😂 Somebody has a funny take on ol’ hallows eve.
Good 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 When you order Alice Cooper from Wish.
Well done Found sponge bobs dad 🤣🤣 OMG it's the Villain super hero ink man Gutted Furious: the man was calm and reasonably polite. Drivers: a lone man was on foot Hurl: it was squirted with very little pressure from a small bottle. Acid should shift them ...
What happened? The courts need to impose much larger fines for obstruction public highways. We don’t need this crap just lock them up. Maybe they should just go and target a bloody country that's not doing it's bit cos nobody can say we aren't How horrible for this poor elderly man! 😪 For a retired doctor to behave in such a fashion is appalling. He can well afford to insulate his own large house
I'd be a hypocrisy if I said good. But they have the right to protest and not have things thrown. Left wingers take note of that. Silverl23964445 Buckshot would be more effective. At a minimum this lot should be rounded up and sent to work in the coal mines. Who just has ink laying around, and in their car xD.
Do you think it was ecologically friendly ink? GOOD! Insulate Britain coffin dodger has ink poured on him as him & others block the A40 in West London and roundabout in Dartford. I think he got off lightly. Ahahaha knob
They are lucky it’s only ink that is thrown at them…..I could think of other things to throw at them including verbal abuse…..and it’s not cotton wool balls I’d definitely go home if I had to listen to bagpipes Good Brilliant Worst episode of Squid games by a country mile. 😂😂😂😂😂😂👏👏👏👏👏 CairneyMarc 😂😂😂 fantastic!
Fukin superb As I’m a printer I find it really funny , I can’t work out what pantone number the ink is
👍 Squid games? Think he's got it all wrong.. Rather than stopping working people going about their business, wouldn’t it be more effective to sit in front of the Downing Street gates , their achieving nothing but hatred . Is anyone else surprised it was only ink the frustrated travellers used? Selfish wankers blocking roads are only isolating themselves further from working society.
😂😂😂😂😂 Brilliant Do y'all just drive around with ink in your cars over there? Inksulate Britain Whats up Doc! Brilliant 🤣🤣
Good👍 As you'll see from the video, it was a pedestrian. I have a lot of sympathy with their cause but they’re screwing the wrong people & making so many resent them & their goal Hahahaha, serves the silly old fart right. Excellent 👍 Banksy? Good Very good, they deserve some beating. Lucky is was only ink !! should have on him
I hope they all get treated e-quill-y
Every one should carry a carton of half a dozen eggs in the glove box..Cheaper than eggs Imagine getting to that age then getting your while face inked. 👍🏼 This could be the start of something really unpleasant. Now, what else can we use? When I was held up I was desperate for the loo. It looked like one guy on foot that no one sat on the ground took much notice of when he walked off?
New Star Trek film looks low budget. Brilliant That’s made my day
KISS tribute band wannabe Nosympathy Daft old bugger only wanted a blue rinse Perfect! About time.....follow it up with shoes and Wellies and manure Aye well…. Play silly games you win silly prizes, no sympathy for these people 🤷🏻♂️ If he wasn’t there it wouldn’t have happened. He is to blame. Fabulous!
Good!!👍👍👍 Good, could be a lot smellier, hope it was permanent ink 😆😆😆😆😆😆
Excellent And? 😂😂 Someone is gonna snap and get stabbed or run over at this rate.. Blot them out? People have had enough of this shit. He’s lucky it was just bloody ink. If they want to protest, protest but what’s their protest to do to other people who needs to get to work, schools, hospitals etc got to do with their protest Don’t stop others going to their jobs etc as obviously none of those fools have a job!.
Time to take back our roads from those nut cases. Well done guys. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Good, they flipping deserve it! Well that's assault...the metpoliceuk will be there in 3, 2, 1... Oh dear , how sad , never mind Oh dear! Lol!! Same people raging over roadblocks are turning to jelly coz an elderly fella got ink in his face. Is that worse than a woman paralysed coz she couldn’t reach hospital after a stroke?
Should have used a Biro👍 Shouldnt be there Is that Post Malone? His nibs has been inked! 👍🤣 The state of him probably has nothing to do all day so prevents others from doing so. He’s lived his life he should allow others to do the same. It’s climate bollocks that I’ve heard for over 40 years yet nothing changes. It’s just a ploy to increase costs.
Could be worse… Good Kinda hope its permanent so we can spot at least one misguided ideologue Oh look, he thinks he’s bloody Braveheart. They are a bunch of trouble making, nothing to do, Twanks. Get off the damn roads and let people get home. Total W%ker How do these protesters get there? Bet they didn’t walk.
Amazing! I know his old but I really don't think what he do have any affect on what ever he try to stand for, tomorrow some one will hurt him out of frustration than that person gonna go to jail, because these people frustrated the hell out of them, surely there is other ways This man should take a long hard look at himself in the mirror and see how rediculous he looks and humiliating it's been for his family
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Bizarre splatter pattern though.
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 It’s no problem….he invented tip ex..correct me if I’m wrong Good Lovely Not the worst idea. Got anything smellier though? Dog shit. Not ink. is needed. What did they expect - a welcome party? It's escalating. Called it this week already. Surprised that it was only ink they were throwing.
Obviously had his silly head on...
He will still come back for more. Can they please lay on the railway The Squid Ink games. Thank god he wasn't my doctor Typical white eco trusties who've got nothing better to do than wind up motorists... He got what he deserved Am I the only wondering how come the driver had a pot of fountain pen ink available in his cab...? Curious
Pensioner with nothing to do leaves his middle class cottage in the countryside to block the roads of people trying to earn a living 🤷♂️🤔🤔🤔 FirstClassWalloper They are not bothered about preventing people sick getting treatment in hospital a bit of ink will come off it will do them no harm the lady whose mother had cancer may have never saw her mother alive again
Good Oh dear.....
the drivers are finally fighting back instead of waiting for our useless woke Police force to enforce the law Squid bukkake. Good. Was it BANKSY ? Oh dear, how sad, never mind, I am sure the driver was just protesting That’s the Mike Tyson fan club man 🤣 Champion Indelible? Thank god Claudia wasn’t there then !!
Mike Tyson is looking his age 🤣 Good. Lucky it was only ink. 😂😂 Work out th cost of the disruption and fine them and make them pay for it, bailiffs incoming would make them think about it! 😂😂😂 I am surprised it was just ink Great stuff 👏 Good ! Play silly games, win silly prizes.
Why don’t the police bring in the water cannons? That will move them. All those cars stuck in traffic with their engines running 😳 Inkredible 🙈 Great work Good.
