'How can you be so selfish?!'

This desperate motorist pleads with eco protesters blocking the entrance to the Blackwall Tunnel asking them to move so she can get to her sick mother in hospital.

They're idiots. Bringing nothing but hostile coverage and winding people up.

tasselhoff - 04 Oct 2021 10:22:54 (#3 of 339)

They'd get hostile coverage whatever their MO.

RosyLovelady - 04 Oct 2021 10:27:40 (#4 of 339)

They should have some undercover cops embedded with them by now.

Filth.

Strictly speaking, it's IB rather than ER, if you follow me.

Drivers drag protestors out of the way.

Including a paramedic crew.

Including a paramedic crew.


Dragging, or protesting?

nemo75 - 04 Oct 2021 12:06:30 (#10 of 339)

Dragging, after pleading with the protesters to let them through

FrankieTeardrop - 04 Oct 2021 11:07:39 (#11 of 339)

The protestors blocked an ambulance?! Way to get public sympathy, guys!

Snarlygog - 04 Oct 2021 12:37:30 (#12 of 339)

That must be the undercover cops.

Agaliarept - 04 Oct 2021 12:49:08 (#13 of 339)

I don't understand how inconveniencing motorists is supposed to get the government to act.

What is the expected result of this action?

ReverendBlueJeans - 04 Oct 2021 12:50:08 (#14 of 339)

A good day out?

solomongursky - 04 Oct 2021 11:50:14 (#15 of 339)

They're idiots. Bringing nothing but hostile coverage and winding people up.

And 40% of their car trips are less than 3km!

Agaliarept - 04 Oct 2021 12:50:59 (#16 of 339)

A good day out?

While the weather holds..

ReverendBlueJeans - 04 Oct 2021 12:51:27 (#17 of 339)

Ach, you rarely get proper bad weather in That London...

Agaliarept - 04 Oct 2021 12:59:58 (#18 of 339)

Ach, you rarely get proper bad weather in That London...

The balmy south...

The French have an interesting take on insulation. As well as incentives, they have an insulation grading system from A to G. Over the next few years G, F, then E will not be allowed to be rented out.

Lock them all up I say. It’s political correctness gone mad and a short spell in the army would sort them out.
