Anyone Got Any Scissors?

Insulate Britain are back making nuisances of themselves this morning, this time hanging themselves off Tower Bridge. As far as Guido’s concerned, as long as they’re not getting in the way of anyone let them swing…

Range Rover Driver Who Nudged Insulate Britain Protester Given Driving Ban

It seems the courts are altogether keener to pursue hard-working drivers who try pushing back against disruptive protests than the climate commies themselves. Sherrilyn Speid, who co-conspirators will remember as the mum who gently nudged a road-sitting nuisance maker last October, has been handed a driving ban. #JusticeForSherrilyn.

Appearing at Southend Magistrates’ Court this morning, Speid pleaded guilty to a charge of dangerous driving. An additional assault charge against Sherrilyn, in which it was alleged that protester Bethany Mogie had been beaten, was dismissed after the prosecution said it would produce no evidence. The 4×4-driving mum was bailed and the sentencing will take place in May. Speid is facing £310 of costs from the trial. Is there a fundraiser yet?

Labour Continues Promoting Jailed Eco-Loon Councillor

A week ago another coterie of Insulate Britain nutters were put away for defying a court ordered injunction to stay away from the M25. One of those jailed happened to be a Labour councillor all the way from Scarborough. How she travelled down to the M25 we can only guess… 

As the local Tory association bemoaned, the length of Councillor Norton’s (63) sentence does not meet the 12-week threshold to disqualify her as a councillor, and there’s no sign of her standing down of her own free will.

Despite Sir Keir’s recent push to rebrand Labour as a party of law and order, it seems the local Labour branch isn’t disillusioned with their criminal comrade. This week Scarborough residents found party literature pushed through their letterboxes with Cllr Norton front and centre.

They boast the party’s “representing you in Scarborough”. Well, some are… others are doing so at her majesty’s pleasure.

Insulate Britain: “We Have Failed”

Our long, national nightmare may finally be over. At 8 am this morning, Insulate Britain (sort of) waved the white flag: “It is with an extremely heavy heart that today we have to announce that as Insulate Britain we have failed.” So long, farewell…

After blocking ambulances from hospitals and standing outside half-empty government buildings for months, the brave eco-warriors have now realised they’ve wasted everyone’s time, not least their own. They even acknowledge they “failed in getting enough of you to join us on the roads”. A refreshing moment of introspection.

They do, however, also warn that they plan to return at some point with an “even more ambitious” campaign, and promise they “haven’t gone away” though “more of you need to join us”. Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

Full statement below:

Insulate Britain Cost Metropolitan Police Eye-Watering £1.6 Million in October

The Metropolitan Police spent a staggering £1,603,315.92 on clearing Insulate Britain protests in October alone. This figure – revealed in new FOI data – doesn’t even include the ongoing costs associated with processing the 153 arrests made throughout the month, so the total bill to the taxpayer will likely be even higher…

The Met have been forced to divert a huge number of resources to police this radical mob. The data also shows that in a single day in October, 176 police constables and 24 police sergeants were diverted to handle the protests. A fantastic use of their time: far better than, say, tackling knife crime… 

Co-conspirators can find a full breakdown of the costs below…

Insulate Britain Dares Judge: Lock Me Up or I’ll Head for the Nearest Motorway

An Insulate Britain activist has warned the high court that he will “block the highway at the earliest opportunity” if he’s not thrown in jail for breaching the Home Office’s injunction, amid ongoing trials. The petulant irritant, Ben Taylor, was one of nine eco-terrorists facing the royal courts of justice yesterday, with the verdict due this morning. Other than his brazen refusal to apologise for the disruption, Ben Taylor did little to ingratiate himself to the court, being bollocked for saying he will continue to block the roads “until the government makes a meaningful statement and fucking acts on it”…

Taylor threatened the country with violent protest if the court goes down the route of “somehow [managing] to stop all non-violent protests”, and warned that:

“If you send me away to prison, 10 people will step forward in my place… If you send each of us away, 100 people will step forward and take our places. If you send 100 of us away, 1,000 people will step forward to take our place.”

Yesterday a 41-year-old protestor facing trial told LBC, “I’m crapping myself this morning, and I feel like crying.”

While the nine nuisance-makers could theoretically face two years in prison and an unlimited fine, Guido’s seen before how lightly the courts punish these lot…
