IT would be difficult enough for any of us not to have noticed the results of global warming.
All over the world we have seen record high temperatures, flooding and wildfires that have wreaked havoc.
This is one of the biggest challenges we will face in our lifetime.
But what we don’t need is a bunch of stupid middle-class assholes who organize ridiculous and harmful protests on the country’s busiest highway during rush hour when we don’t. let’s just get the country back on track.
Insulate Britain on Wednesday decided it wanted to raise awareness about home insulation, demanding “appropriate jobs” for people to insulate every home in the country to reduce carbon emissions.
They therefore targeted three sections of the M25 and the adjacent access ramps during a coordinated demonstration just after 8 a.m.
The idiots stuck to the freeway – and to each other.
The Extinction Rebellion splinter group includes a retired dentist who once sewn his lips in protest and a retired doctor whose wife is (unsurprisingly) worried about his stunts.
There is also a Buddhist teacher who warns of his carbon footprint and goes to India on retreats, and an army veteran who laid a wreath on the cenotaph with a note that read, “Honor their sacrifice, climate change Means war.
The Insulate Idiots prepared not with signs and megaphones, but with a bulging M&S cooler bag.
And as they undoubtedly relaxed and laughed at their vegan picnic, chaos erupted around them.
They didn’t care that they turned rush hours into traffic jams, leaving commuters at risk of losing their jobs.
It didn’t matter to them when a poor truck driver, desperately trying to haul goods across the country, got out of his taxi and said to them, “We’re going to lose our jobs.
They didn’t care whether ambulances and fire trucks were able to get to the emergency room, if the police were diverted from serious crimes or if essential drugs arrived in hospitals on time.
Dangerous and disturbing
And they clearly didn’t care that, within an hour of the start of the protest, a 50-year-old woman had to be airlifted to hospital due to a four-car pile-up.
If they had, they would not have returned to the highways on Friday and would have put more lives at risk, this time by closing roads and throwing paint.
Global warming must be addressed. But do these protesters really think the hardworking public doesn’t care what they put forward after this farce?
All they have done is point out how little power the police have in situations like this.
Protesters were arrested Monday and Wednesday on charges of blocking a public road, but were released without bail conditions.
Hertfordshire Police said they could not remand them “with the offenses for which they were arrested” and had to collect evidence for the Crown Prosecution Service.
Police officers involved on Wednesday included an officer standing with his hands in his pockets and another telling protesters: “If any of you are uncomfortable or need anything, please let me know. and we’ll try to fix it for you. ” Ridiculous.
The government is currently submitting the controversial Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill to Parliament.
Home Secretary Priti Patel said it would empower police to take a more proactive approach to tackling dangerous and disruptive protests.
The police need this. They need to be able to act when lives are in danger, instead of standing with their hands in their pockets.
These green idiots can’t keep getting away with this.
And we cannot allow them to stop our roads as Britain gets back on track.
All he wanted was justice
TERRY LUBBOCK – Stuart’s father, who was found dead in Michael Barrymore’s swimming pool – died this week at the age of 76.
For two decades all he wanted was “justice for Stuart.”
The most recent arrest resulted in the suspect’s release without charge.
But Terry believed that one day, even after he left, someone’s bad conscience would eventually overwhelm him and he would tell the police this vital information.
I hope, in tribute to him, that this person does the right thing and comes forward.
Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, who died at the age of 80, was so modest he once said, “I don’t know what showbiz is and I’ve never watched MTV.
“There are people who just play instruments, and I’m happy to know I’m one of them.”
I bet Charlie, who lived quietly in the West Country, would have loved the track on the Radio Exe website, which read, “Devon Drummer Dies.” Perfect.
Bruvs won’t buy it
LIAM and Noel Gallagher disagree on much.
But I’m pretty sure when it comes to helping their dad Tommy, below, they will.
He begged them to buy their former childhood home in Manchester to save him from homelessness.
Tommy once owned this house, but lost it to a real estate company and he’s struggling to pay the rent.
When I was a very young reporter, I was a regular visitor to this house because Tommy wanted me to help rekindle his relationship with the Oasis brothers.
Obviously, this never happened.
Liam then described his father as a fighter who beat his mother and brothers.
I think Liam is more likely to invite Robbie Williams over for afternoon tea than he is buying this semi at Burnage.
Meghan’s extensions are the mane event
HAVING Harry and Meghan on the cover of Time Magazine announcing them as one of its 100 Most Influential People is pretty ridiculous.
But the photo that came with it is just scary.
They’ve been so photoshoped that they look like Madame Tussauds wax models.
And every time I look at Meghan’s hair extensions, all I can imagine is Cowardly Lion, from The Wizard of Oz.
Empty. It was my favorite party movie.
Begum must stay
FORMER bride Shamima Begum wants to come home.
Over six years ago, she left the UK, aged 15, as one of three schoolgirls to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
She later said the Manchester Arena bombing was “justified”.
This week, the newly transformed Shamima took to GMB with a high neckline, pink lipstick and nails to please Britons.
She said she knew it was difficult for them to forgive her and pleaded from the al-Roj prison camp in Syria: “I’m so sorry if I ever offended anyone by coming here, if I have ever offended anyone by what I said.
To offend someone is to tell them that they are fat while they are eating their tenth slice of pizza.
Running away to join IS is a bit more serious. Until she realizes it, she should stay where she is.
Denise works body
You must be wondering why ex-Emmerdale and Coronation Street star Denise Black undressed for a mirror selfie on Instagram.
The actress says she suddenly became proud of her body at the age of 63 after a life of criticism.
It’s fantastic. Oh, and she’s got a new piece to promote.
THE OUR Yorkshire Farm star’s eldest daughter, Clive Owen, has revealed that he almost missed out on his entire wedding because he clashed with the set.
Instead, he walked Rosie down the aisle but left before the reception, so he didn’t give a speech.
There are surely more important things in life than reality TV.
Heroes of heroes
Get your handkerchiefs ready for The Sun’s Who Cares Wins awards, airing tonight on Channel 4 at 7:30 p.m.
Selfless British health heroes are known for what they have done for all of us during the pandemic.
The star-studded guest list included Prince William, Boris Johnson and David Beckham.
Host Davina McCall called the nominees “amazing” and added: “It matters every year, but this year more than ever.
“We’ve all been touched by the actions of our health heroes over the past 18 months and these are the things they all do selflessly and all the time.”
Congratulations to them all.
