Extinction Rebellion Start Begging for Food

In a snub to the many homeless people in Westminster, Extinction Rebellion have resorted to publicly begging for food donations on only the second day of their self-indulgent protest. Ironically the protesters can’t just pop to the shops as their road blockages have stopped the shelves being restocked

In a Tweet, Extinction Rebellion said their “overnight rebels need hot water, ready-to-eat vegan food, tents, sleeping gear and warm clothes. Please help them. Many are preparing to go on hunger strike so they need some food now”. Guido sympathises with the rebels’ hunger – the protesters stopped his Tesco delivery arriving this morning…

Lord Fraser Confronts Extinction Rebellion in his Dressing Gown

In photos that speak for a majority of the nation, Lord Fraser – former Tory Party treasurer – emerged from his posh townhouse on Lord North Street to berate the passing Extinction Rebellion protestors. Clearly their drumming had just woken him up…

Public Not Interested in Boris/Acuri Affair and Oppose Extinction Rebellion

A new poll by YouGov has revealed that less than a quarter of Brits think it is relevant for them to know if Boris and Jennifer Arcuri had a romantic relationship. 62% think it isn’t…

Majorities in every region, country, age group, gender, and social grade of the UK say it is not relevant, which makes Morgan’s constant focus on it this morning seem a waste of time. Interestingly, fewer women are likely to say it is relevant than men…

The same poll found that 53% of the public oppose Extinction Rebellion’s fortnight-long shut down of Westminster, compared to just 37% who support it. Things look even bleaker for the extremist group when the poll is broken down to strongly oppose vs strongly support; with just 12% strongly support the group, vs 33% who strongly oppose them. Looks like the true extinction might be their climate communist cabal…

Extinction Rebellion Use Second Untaxed Vehicle in Protests

Immediately after Extinction Rebellion’s widely-publicised Fire Tankie protest last week, keen-eyed co-conspirators spotted their truck was untaxed. Odd for such a left-wing organisation…

Their protest today – although overall less bloody – involved a hearse blocking the road at Trafalgar Square. Presumably the body in the back wasn’t connected to last week’s blood collection drive…

Embarrassingly, today’s vehicle was also untaxed – and has been for a fortnight. If Guido has to cover another of these untaxed protest vehicles, he’ll be accused of flogging a dead hearse …

Extinction Rebellion Protests Causing Food Shortages

Civil service workers, wonks, and politicos were frustrated this lunchtime when they discovered that Monck Street Tesco’s shelves were bare. A Tesco worker told one co-conspirator that the delivery van can’t get through due to the protests. Already causing food shortages and that’s before any of their medieval policies have been adopted…

Extinction Rebellion’s ‘Blood’ Spray Stunt Literally Backfires

Extinction Rebellion’s stunt outside the Treasury got off to a hilariously bad start, when they lost control of the hose after just a few seconds, spraying their entire team with red paint and missing most of the Treasury. Blood on their hands…

Extinction Rebellion Spray 1800 Litres of Fake Blood Over the Treasury

In a protest that has left one of the oldest buildings in Whitehall looking like a scene from War of the Worlds, climate communists Extinction Rebellion have just sprayed 1800 litres of fake blood over the treasury using an old fire engine. Maybe the Treasury need to fight fire with fire…

The specific motive is unclear apart from a sign on the fire engine saying “stop funding climate…”. They say blood is thicker than water, but XR are thicker than most…

UPDATE: That black smoke coming out their fire engine doesn’t look particularly environmentally friendly…

UPDATE II: The gas guzzling fire engine appears to be untaxed and not have an MOT. Alongside this, the Treasury building is Grade One listed, and the alteration of its exterior looks like a clear breach of the Planning Act 1990. Could this have gone any worse for XR?

Extinction Rebellion Using Diesel Generator to Power Stage

Extinction Rebellion have – for once – admitted their hypocrisy as they were caught out using a diesel generator to power their ‘music stage’, which of course every good protest needs…

According to the extremist group, the generator used 20 liters of diesel throughout the weekend, with the protest set to continue until this evening. One spokesman admitted they felt “like hypocrites” but had been “forced” to use a generator because a solar panel one would have cost £8,000 – money they “simply don’t have”Of course the obvious way to have avoided this double standard would have been to not hold the protest in the first place…

George Freeman’s Tent Festival Partners With Environmental Extremists

George Freeman’s lefty remain tent has become so broad it now apparently covers environmental extremists. His ‘Big Tent Ideas Festival’ has announced it is “unbelievably excited” to be partnering with Extinction Rebellion”.

But just last month the think tank Policy Exchange published a paper on the group by Counter Terrorism experts which outlined that Extinction Rebellion:

  • rejects both our representative democracy and the liberal free market economy and explicitly seeks to overturn both.
  • originates in the anti-globalisation Occupy Movement, and promotes ‘post-capitalism’ ‘de-growth’.
  • espouses a ‘civil resistance’ strategy of mass protests involving large numbers of the public who are encouraged to break the law, cause serious social and economic disruption and place a burden on police resources.
  • emphasises the importance of achieving economic damage to a city.
  • believes that the economic costs of protest increase exponentially day by day.
  • has groups behind the campaign with social media accounts that reveal notable examples of extremist content including conspiracy theories, including “concerning instances of anti-Semitism”
  • has a leader who has spoken about people dying for its cause, having said “we are not just sending out e-mails and asking for donations. We are going to force the governments to act. And if they don’t, we will bring them down and create a democracy fit for purpose… and yes, some may die in the process”.

There is no doubt that Extinction Rebellion is an extremist organisation. What is Government Minister George Freeman playing at..?

“Climate Crisis” Populism Versus Data: Food Production

In the 1960s, when the world’s population had just crossed 3 billion people, there was a common belief across the experts in the academic and scientific communities that we were approaching “peak humanity”. That this was largest number of people the planet could support, based on the amount of food the planet could produce. Policymakers feared global famine, mass starvation and a collapse in the social order.

Thanks to the Green Revolution that was spurred in part by Norman Borlaug’s work to develop heartier and higher-yielding strains of staple crops like wheat, food production doubled without significantly expanding land use. With the global population now some 7 billion we are told by experts in the academic and scientific communities that this we are facing a “climate crisis”. Policymakers fear climate induced global famine, mass starvation and a collapse in the social order.

If this is true wouldn’t world food prices being a leading indicator? Food costs would be rising as environmental constraints reduced supply and population growth increased demand.

So it is incredible that within a generation food costs have dropped so dramatically in India and China, countries that at one time were frequently on the brink of famine. Environmentalists who campaign against agri-tech advances have argued for population reduction rather than increased food production. Fortunately policy-makers have taken the humane option and have better fed bigger populations as a result. Could it be that the same green ideologues who were wrong in the past could be wrong again about humanity’s ingenuity when it comes to their fears about an unproven “climate crisis”? Green populism plays on irrational fears that have little scientific basis. Humanity is far from becoming extinct…

Uni Lecturer Cries in Court Over Extinction Rebellion Fine

A Bristol lecturer and former Lib Dem candidate broke down in tears yesterday while being tried in court for causing major civil disruption as part of the Extinction Rebellion protests back in April. Dr Steve Melia claimed he had always “obeyed the law” despite being arrested twice in two days while blockading bridges and bringing London to a standstill back in April. The 57-year-old bawled as he was given a £500 fine plus costs of £300, blubbering that he had “never even had a parking ticket before.” Probably should have thought of that before causing millions of pounds of economic disruption, his fine is a drop in the ocean in comparison…

In fact the former Government transport adviser arguably misled the court as he does have a history of law-breaking – Melia lost his licence after driving through a red light as a teenager. Ironically crashing into the side of a van from the Police Accident Prevention Unit…

Extinction rebellion arrest

Appearing at Westminster Crown Court, the sobbing subversive performed a swift U-turn from his previous delight at being arrested – at the time he posted a beaming selfie on his website captioned “shortly before arrest at Extinction Rebellion action” and linking to a blog post where he wrote “I, and many others, have decided that we need civil disobedience”. Truly a revolutionary to inspire a generation…

Environmentalists Protest Renewable Energy by Mistake

After Extinction Rebellion hounded journalists at a carbon neutral business last week, yesterday environmental protesters got it wrong yet again, accidentally protesting a leading renewable energy company. The activists chained themselves to a building in the City that is home to Statkraft, Europe’s leading renewables generator. A protester told CityAM that “there was some confusion” about the protest, which had been intended to target Drax. But they got the wrong building…

This didn’t stop the protesters making a fuss anyway, chanting and brandishing banners with the words “No Borders, No Nations, No Gas Power Stations.” They’re planning more disruption over the summer…

Extinction Rebellion Hound Journalists at Carbon Neutral Business

News UK employees have to be protected by security buffer zones this afternoon to protect them from an environmentalist protest by Extinction Rebellion. Employing anti-media tactics against a business that is carbon neutral is low, even for them…

Primary School Pushing ‘Extinction Rebellion’ Propaganda to 7-Year-Olds

Voters in Kent will be pleased to discover that their hard-earned taxes have been going on promoting extremist group Extinction Rebellion to children as young as 7. Here’s Ramsgate Arts Primary School asking parents and teachers to take part in a “climate justice” printing session with their new art teacher, who will teach pupils how to decorate their clothes with slogans and symbols from a radical far-left doomsday cult hell-bent on the wholesale destruction of the global economy.[…] Read the rest
