Yeah fuck these people 100%. Each one of them should have to pay for the woman's care for the rest of her life.

I don't think that means much. They likely heard the same everyone else did, and gave an obvious response. They clearly don't intend to impact people like this and so apologising, regardless of if its true or not, is the sensible thing to do.

You'd think at least one newspaper would have sought this person out, given how eager they were to slam Insulate Britain into the mud and then ten feet under. And yet... none of them did, with this. Just seems odd is all.

And unless I missed it, all that video shows is the police removing them from the road. Couldn't really hear whatever was said though tbh.

All I know is that it made the newspapers, both physical and digital, and riled up a whole lot of folks as a result. Take it up with the people writing the articles if you think theyre not being legitimate in their reporting.

In America they would be lucky someone didn't pull a gun. Nobody wants their road blocked over some cause they have nothing to do with.

I'm glad the thought of another person's paralysis is funny to you. Pretty much confirms the kind of person you are.

I thought the drivers were quite nice actually.

This type of protest is literally coercion, though. You are physically stopping me from doing something I am legally allowed to do, through both physically stopping me from traversing past you, and through the implicit legal threat that if I move you it is supposedly "assault". Imagine if people formed a human wall around a voting booth to stop people from voting.

"It's just protesting!"

"The real problem is capitalism!"

"You can't move them. That's assault!"

"They can physically stop you from doing anything, though, through implicit legal threats!"

They can have a good cause and still unethical in their behavior. This shouldn't be an intellectually difficult exercise.

So it's very important that the emergency vehicles get through but the cars didn't get out of the way? You know roads have shoulders and the lanes are notably wider than most vehicles.

They are more likely part of that weird anti-work shit.

I know personal responsibility may be a foreign concept to you but you should really do better.

Protest causing inconvenience is kind of, at least partially, the point.
Good way to piss off the people you're trying to convert too

Can we all just agree that instead of protesting fuel use on highways what we really need to do is start protesting lazybones not putting their shopping carts away?

Fwiw protesting fuel usage is useless anyways. Auto use has nothing on the contributions to global climate change of the US military and major corporations

Blocking the highway does harm to everyone and literally no one likes it. With so many people on the highway, there are fair odds that someone may have serious medical issues unaddressed for longer than need be.

And what do they want regular people to do anyway? Buy a Tesla?

So other drivers didn't get out of the way but the only group with agency are the protestors? Interesting.
How the f*** do you get out of the way when there's bumper to bumper traffic and stupid assholes are sitting out in the middle of the road?

right off
