Marble Arch, London

Attention-seeking troublemakers, with no jobs of their own to go to, amuse themselves by harassing other people trying to get to work.

Extinction Rebellion campaigners enter their second day of blocking traffic in central London, reports BBC News.

More than 100 climate change activists have been arrested after blocking roads in central London.

Extinction Rebellion campaigners were ordered by the Met to confine their protest to Marble Arch after causing widespread disruption on Monday.

But activists camped overnight to ensure blockades continued at Waterloo Bridge, Millbank and Oxford Circus.

Among a total of 113 arrests, five people were detained on suspicion of criminal damage at Shell’s HQ.

Transport for London warned bus users that routes would “remain on diversion / curtailment in central London due to on-going protest which are blocking roads”.

The majority of others arrested were detained on suspicion of public order offences.

    Instead of wasting time, theirs and others, they should get a job or at least a proper education. They definitely lack the latter …

    Extinction Rebellion: Climate protesters dodge arrest after police run out of cells

    Climate change protesters have successfully brought a second day of disruption to London, after it emerged police were struggling to make arrests as they had run out of cells.

    Blockades on four of the capital’s busiest roads were kept in place by demonstrators through Monday night and all of Tuesday, despite more than 100 people being detained.

    Now they know what they can get away with.

    The extinction rebellion is the inevitable result of the relentless campaign of alarmist misinformation by the all the climate imams. The chickens are coming home to roost. Now a generation of young people have been pointlessly radicalised, and a world of destruction will follow that will make the Notre Dame fire pale by comparison. It will impoverish all of us, pointlessly, all for a pseudoscientific scam.

    Total arrested now at 290. Even if there is a climate problem – which is not obvious – it’s not a man-made CO2 problem, so they are wasting everyone’s time.

    A Costly Temper Tantrum Paid For By Londoners

    A temper tantrum by mostly middle-class protesters to bring London to a halt will do nothing to help the climate and a lot to ruin ordinary people’s lives.

    They want net zero carbon dioxide emissions from the UK economy by 2025 to avoid “extinction.”

    I am not sure they have thought this through. That target would mean scrapping more than 60 million gas boilers and car engines.

    Because there is not time to build a fleet of nuclear plants by then, replacing all that combustion with emission-free electricity would require carpeting the entire country and most of another country somewhere with wind turbines (made using 150 tonnes of coal each) or solar panels (made with mined metals) to the detriment of birds, forests and landscapes.

    They’ve all been upstaged by the Notre Dame cathedral fire.

    Police remembering what their role is?

    BBC News — Extinction Rebellion: Climate activists ‘face full force of law’
    2 hours ago

    Police officers must use the “full force of the law” when dealing with Extinction Rebellion protesters in London, the home secretary has said.

    Three people were remanded in custody after pleading not guilty over a protest on a train, while more than 425 others have been arrested since Monday.

    Sajid Javid said the climate activists “have no right to cause misery” and the Met Police “must take a firm stance”.

    Met chiefs have also condemned footage of officers dancing with protesters.
