Not soon enough.

I live by the Dartford crossing and have a good friend in the met who deals with them.

I think the police should unstick them, leave their hands cast in their concrete tubes (which by the way the protestors have not easy of getting themselves out of!) at the side of the road for a public flogging. Let them try and convince the passers by that they should listen

For once I completely agree with Boris and his description of the morons.

They should protest in a deserted field somewhere. Or out on the moors.

Climate change is unimportant and will make no difference to anybody so protesters causing disruption and actually getting noticed is bang out of order.

Probably should make protesting about anything illegal too really!

Of course, these protesters are causing massive traffic jams, with cars and lorries spewing fumes that are concentrated in the locality - very nice for the locals... NOT!

Average age of a car in the UK is 6 years I believe.

I suspect if my girlfriend's 2014 poverty spec Fiesta has engine auto-stop then plenty of other stuff will have too.

They might have a solid point but the only thing I think when someone says insulate Britain isn't kind.......and they're not even getting in my way.

Why don't they go inconvenience Boris Johnson? I bet they'd get far more support for that.





me? ambivalent? well, yes and no

I totally believe in their cause.

I don't support the tactics. Not only is it targeting the wrong people, it's causing real personal harm and doubt nothing but turning the public off the cause.

If they got in the way of me getting to my parents in hospital, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pay them much regard.

When it first started I had a bit of sympathy for their cause and their right to protest, but now its gone too far

Stopping emergency service vehicles is a no no in my book...

They've damaged their cause by affecting the wrong people

I totally support their cause. Home should be insulated for free.

It will save us money, stop us all wasting gas and keep people body in jobs.

I don't overly want to pay for landlords homes, and I don't think it's the best way to cut carbon emissions.

Their way of going about things it's just stupid. I don't understand why they attack the Joe public about something that is not to do with us, we can't decide to pass the bill so why sit on the M25.?

I think they'd be better spending their time growing and planting new trees.

Just been watching them online today causing more 'Insulate Britain' havoc

I've changed my mind, I used to think they'd got a point, Now I just think their a bunch of retired bloody anarchists' causing major issues for working people

I don't think it will be long now before one gets run over or knocked out by an irate builder or van driver...

I'm sure if I went out and sat on the road outside the police would have me in the back of a van before I knew it.

Their cause is perfectly reasonable, their methods just idiotic and completely failing to gain any support.
