Insulate Britain tell motorists not to use M25 tomorrow and to reduce speed to 20mph so they can protest

Insulate Britain have asked motorists not to use the M25 on Wednesday and reduce speeds to “20mph to minimise the risk of accidents” if they do.

In a statement the group said, “The Highway Agency (National Highways) acts on its responsibilities to keep the public safe by enforcing this speed limit.

“The police refuse to arrest us, as we are upholding the British constitution and they have a duty to refuse to obey any government that fails to uphold its first and most important responsibility: the protection of people in Britain.”

Yesterday Transport Secretary Grant Shapps wrote, “Insulate Britain are back, risking lives & ruining journeys. 3 specific injunctions are already in place, but today I instructed @NationalHways to apply for an injunction covering the entire strategic road network – tonight this has been granted on a temp basis by the High Court.

“The long term solution lies in changes to the Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill, giving additional powers against disruptive protests which target critical national infrastructure.

“This includes unlimited fines & prison sentences of up to 6 months for obstructing highways.”

Insulate Britain’s spokesman, Liam Norton said, “We know that the public is frustrated and annoyed at the disruption we have caused.

“They should know that one way or another this country will have to stop emitting carbon.

“We can do that now in an orderly, planned way, insulating homes and preventing thousands of deaths from fuel poverty or we can wait until millions have lost their homes and are fighting for water or starving to death.”
