A MUM who broke into the eco-mob called him a “terrorist” – because an activist accused him of attempted murder.
Sherlyn Speed, 34, drove her Range Rover into smuggler protesters as they blocked her way in Purfleet, Essex, earlier this week.
She said she got frustrated after trying to ask them to move because she needed to bring her 11-year-old boy to her lessons.
He said GB News: “I was absolutely furious that they were stopping me from taking my son to school. How dare they do that.”
During a debate on Chanel, independent climate columnist Donachadh McCarthy said: “This woman is a mother and she drove a car over two peaceful women. What an example to your child.”
“You applauded and applauded someone who attempted the murder of peaceful people. They are fighting for the future of the children.
“You have just incited murder in this program… you are instigating people to murder.”
Sherlyn retorted, saying: “I would never hurt anyone. They weren’t listening to me. They ignored me when I was good. I thought I’d get in the car and give it a bit of a spin.
“All that ‘ow ow’ was dramatic and fake. It didn’t hurt them. They still didn’t move. I got in the car and some people helped me and got them out of the way so I could carry my son. I can school.”
The mental health specialist, who was also on her way to work, had earlier said she lost her cool when he refused to listen to her request to get out of the way and laughed at her.
Sherlyn gets back to her £80,000 motor, turns it on and pushes it into an eco enthusiast to try to get it out of its way.
They eventually left but on 11 October Sherlyn’s usual ten-minute journey took 45 minutes and both she and son Terrell were late.
Sherrilyn of Grace, Essex, explained: “When I got out of the car, I walked over to them and I said, really well and politely, ‘Can you please get out of the way because I have to take my son to school? And I have to go to work’.
“And one woman was very rude and said ‘Yeah, everyone has to take their kids to school’.
“She then said ‘we’re not moving’ and laughed and just really p***ed me up.
“Finally I said ‘Okay then, I’m going to drive over you if you’re not going to move’. So I got in my car and I went to them.
“But I didn’t hit them, I nudged them softly on the road. It was an intimidation tactic. I thought they would move on, but they didn’t.”
‘Pushed over the edge’
Sherlyn, who was a youth activist for seven years before setting up a consulting and consulting business, said she would never hurt anyone and is not violent.
He said: “I shouldn’t have let anger overwhelm me, but they put me to the side.
“What they are doing is wrong. They are not peaceful, they are obstructive and they are harsh.
“I’m upset that I’ve lost my temper and I may have gone about it a different way, but I will always stand up for what I believe in – that people should live their normal lives.” There should be a right to live.
“And I stood up for all the moms who are trying to get their kids to school.”
She said: “Education is very important and we just went through a pandemic. My son had a lot of time outside of school.
“Seven years is really important. His first year of secondary school. He is an intelligent student and is doing well academically.
“And I have an important job. I’m a single mom trying to live an honest life. I worked during the pandemic and people in distress are waiting to see me.
“People may see me as a lunatic right now but I do a lot for my community.”
Sherlyn said she had no problem with people protesting and accepted the change, but added: “They are going about it the wrong way.
“I get it. We want a good planet for our kids’ kids, which I support — but they’re doing more harm than good.
“They should protest outside Parliament and the government and should not disrupt the lives of the people.”
The businessman insisted on Instagram that he simply nudged eco-warriors who had blocked his 11-year-old son while attempting to drop him off to school.
She wrote: “I never drove them, I gave them a nudge, such a dramatic man.”
