Extinction Rebellion Glue Themselves to the Lib Dems’ Electric Bus

The Lobby were all abuzz today following Extinction Rebellion‘s ongoing ’12 Days of Crisis’ protests, and today was the turn of the Lib Dems. Only eight days left until both the Lib Dems and Extinction Rebellion buzz off…

Dressed as bees, the eco-communists swarmed the Lib Dems’ bright yellow battle bus (perhaps thinking it was the queen bee) and proceeded to glue themselves to the windscreen.

Eventually, even Jo Swinson had to get off and engage with the Wasp-Bee Women…

Just to reiterate – this is an electric bus…

Extinction Rebellion Start Hunger Strike Outside Labour HQ

The Climate Communists, Extinction Rebellion, have launched their most audacious tantrum yet: beginning a 25-day hunger strike outside the Labour Party’s Southside Headquarters.

In a plan so cunning Guido suspects the hand of Baldrick in it, the activists are demanding that Labour commits to the objectively impossible agenda of completely decarbonising the UK in just five years and one month, or else they will quietly starve themselves. Guido isn’t sure that XR threatening to shut up and go away is the wisest strategy for the group…

The protest comes as Labour mysteriously deleted an Instagram post promising to go carbon neutral by 2030, five years later than Extinction Rebellion and Greta demand, but 20 years earlier than the IPCC recommendation, and a move that would require extreme moves such as outlawing non-electric cars, cancelling most flights, and scrapping all gas boilers.

A small group of protesters are also outside Tory HQ. The Tories have committed to accept the IPCC recommendation of decarbonising by 2050 – a move that will still cost more than one trillion pounds. If their Hunger Strike really does go on until the election, the only thing that will become extinct is their campaign…

Extinction Rebellion Co-Founder Calls for 1,800 Protesters to Go to Prison

Extinction Rebellion co-founder, Roger Hallam, has launched a new campaign to get 1800 protest participators arrested. For once, Guido’s ears perked up…

In his first Facebook post since leaving the comfort of Her Majesty’s pleasure at Wormwood Scrubs – where he has resided for six weeks following Extinction Rebellion’s Westminster ‘shutdown’ – Hallam writes “going to prison is not the end of the world“. Although he does qualify that “Obviously going to prison is not for everyone”…

Roger explains that:

“… going to prison is a massive headache materially and politically for the authorities and once hundreds and then thousands of people do it in an organised and coordinated way, then in my scholarly opinion real policy changes are going to happen. It is the single biggest act of radical political and nonviolent effectiveness any social movement can decide upon.

I think on the last count something like 1800 people in Extinction Rebellion are up for it. So I will be spending a lot of my time helping to get actions organised which enable these people to walk their talk.

If you are reading this, then I am sure you know it’s all systems go, the time is now, and all the rest of it on the Ecological Catastrophe. So get in touch with XR, book some time off, and make up your book list.”

The call to arms sparked pretty negative reactions on his Facebook page – even from Extinction Rebellion supporters, who have finally decided – after taking a week off work to arrest broccoli and perform their A-level drama dance pieces at Trafalgar square – that there is such a thing as too much “privilege“. Alice wrote, “Obviously spoken from place of privilege and/or mindless ignorance.”

Mat ranted, “Making out like it was some lovely holiday u utter wanker Rodger.. people are locked up every day lives ruined familys torn apart an ur doing it for a giggle…. funny u were banged up the whole time “your minions” were out stoping trains aye”

Namm reminded Roger, “Please remember your race and gender privilege” and Jay put it most bluntly, “A post from a f*ckwit & a privileged white boy”

Hallam responded by asking the comments section to remain respectful. It’s always been clear Extinction Rebellion have criminal in-tent…

Extinction Rebellion’s ‘Westminster Shutdown’ Cost Police £21 Million

The Met Police Commissioner has revealed that the cost of policing Extinction Rebellion‘s two-week ‘Westminster Shutdown’ cost the taxpayer at least £21 million – a figure that’s expected to rise when other costs are consolidated…

Added together with the £16 million cost of their April protests, and we’ve forked out at least £37 million this year for their arts grad student tantrums. Guido reminds policymakers that football clubs have to contribute towards the policing of their stadiums…

ASI Give Extinction Rebellion Protesters a Taste of their own Medicine

Extinction Rebellion are – as their name would suggest – rebelling against the Mets’ Section 14 Order ban on their Westminster protests. Today they’re outside the DfE asking teachers to indoctrinate kids with their anti-scientific conspiracy theories…

Unfortunately for wonks at the ASI, their office directly overlooks the protest. To get their own back for having their work disrupted, the ASI team took to blasting music out at the protesters- starting off with ‘People Will Always Need Coal’ by Public Service Broadcasting, before moving on to ‘Rule Britannia’.

It wasn’t long before Extinction Rebellion asked the ASI to stop disrupting their protest…

The ASI promptly responded by ignoring their complaints and continuing to blast their tunes, including ‘Money’ by That Poppy and The Beatles’ ‘Taxman’. They’re still blaring music, so get your requests in now…

Sadiq’s Extinction Rebellion Protest U-Turn

Sadiq’s posturing over Extinction Rebellion’s disruption of Londoners’ lives has gone into reverse gear since Tuesday; u-turning from questioning the police’s ban of the climate communists’ protests, to finally calling time on their illegal demonstrations. Maybe he’s realised furious commuters will be responsible for voting him back in next year…

In a statement this morning following the Canning Town Station focus group on Extinction Rebellion’s tube protests, Khan wrote:

“This illegal action is extremely dangerous, counterproductive and is causing unacceptable disruption to Londoners”

If any readers can explain why he wasn’t saying this about their Westminster protests last week, please do get in touch…
