Eco-activists blocked motorways in the UK, causing a furious reaction of one driver giving the protesters a piece of his mind and noting that their actions are causing people to hate them instead of joining them.
The protesters, calling themselves ‘Insulate Britain’, sat in the road at a junction near London yesterday morning to block the traffic and ‘stop air pollution’. Interestingly, not a single police officer is seen nearby to help the drivers continue their route. One of the drivers stuck in the made-up traffic jam got so indignant at the situation that he came to the protesters to speak out his mind.
“You’re causing more pollution with all these cars sitting here just doing f*** all. This is not the way to do it. You’re wrecking lives and making people hate you,” exclaimed the man.
The group reportedly released a statement claiming that ‘actions will continue until the government makes a meaningful commitment to insulate all of Britain’s 29 million leaky homes by 2030, and all social housing by 2025’. However, according to The Daily Mail, the leader of the group, Liam Norton, hasn’t even turned his own house insulated.
