The woman's Mother was in an ambulance, again not on blues and twos, but not in hospital.

People get inconvenienced, but nobody was in danger of dying as a result.
So with cars and lorries backed up for miles how are the emergency service vehicles going to get to the front of the traffic jam especially the stretches where no hard shoulder exists, god forbid they are not wanted when one of these idiots is hit by a lorry as they may well die before help reaches them and what about the poor lorry driver who has to live the rest of his life with this on his mind through no fault of his own. -Angry.png- -Angry.png-

Don't forget that his farm was given the lowest energy performance, nothing but a hypocrite
"Ironically, Mr Hallam owns a farmhouse which was described as 'poorly insulated' in an official energy performance certificate. His 2,000 sq ft farmhouse in Carmarthen, South Wales, was given the lowest possible energy rating on the certificate."

People were in danger, an ambulance stuck in the traffic
Wether or not on emergency call is one less ambulance to respond. If a category 1 call comes in and that is the nearest ambulance and it has to waste valuable time getting past idiots sat in the way, peoples live are put at risk. And I highly doubt many of them will move out the way when one of the prominent people has said he would not move out the way even if it had a critically ill patient in the back

The lorry driver didn't hit anybody. You could, hypothetically, argue that without protests we wouldn't have the vast majority of our rights.
Except that's not hypothetical, it's fact.

One person said he wouldn't. A pound to a penny that in that situation he would.

Re: M25

So the leader of this group who lives in a flat with NO INSULATION what so ever has now declared he is a hypocrite as he does not want any more to do with it, as i have said he sends his army into the field to do his dirty work while he sits back and lets them get fined and a criminal record to boot. -Angry.png-

Yes and one of the other major spokespeople for Insulate Britain, Liam Norton has single glazed windows, no cavity wall insulation and admitted in a TalkRadio interview "I don't particularly care about insulation." Emmeline Pankhurst and others who fiercely protested about issues they actually believed in must be spinning in their graves.
