An insulation fitter tells brain-dead Insulate Britain workers to create traffic chaos: “Get out of the way, I’m trying.”
Self-employed Tom Watson was furious because they were preventing him from making homes more eco-friendly.
But as soon as the 37-year-old left his van to make his point, he was taken back by the police while the demo to block the M25 was allowed to run.
Tom, a semi-pro martial arts fighter, said: ‘I just wanted to tell them, “Don’t stop me from working out and doing my job.”
“They’re called Insulate Britain. Well, insulating homes is what I do. How does keeping me from doing that work help the environment?
“I am saving the country a huge amount of CO2 every year, no matter what all the other builders like me do.
“It cost me hundreds and it’s the same for other traders
“We all want to do the right thing in an environmentally sound way but don’t stop the workers who fit the insulation.
“And taking money out of builders’ pockets is really what they want is madness.”
The father of one from Charlewood, Hearts, had quit his job to collect materials from Watford after he was caught in the latest blockade by Insulate Britain activists.
He estimates that three hours of lost work cost him £500.
The WKO European Muay Thai title holder insisted he had no intention of “getting physical” with Extinction Rebellion’s off-shoot – he just wanted to reason with them.
He continued: “As soon as I tried to go anywhere near them, the police started pushing me, I was not doing anything wrong.”
A video of another driver attacking protesters went viral after it was revealed that a woman suffering from a stroke was paralyzed late on the M25.
The man met with workers at Junction 18 in Rickmensworth, near Watford, and said: “You’re stopping someone from taking you to the hospital.
“Why do you think this is the right thing to do?”
The M25 was also targeted at Dartford Bridge and the A1M and 41 people were arrested.
Boris Johnson said: “I don’t think these people do any favors for their cause.
“What they do is separate from a very important ethical mission that is widely shared by people.”
