Insulate Britain Want Motorway Speed Limit Cut So They Can Block The Road

Recommended Posts

You couldn't make it up, Insulate Britain want  the speed limit cutting to accommodate their road blocks on the motorway. There are fears that these demonstrations could go on for months, I wonder how long before some drivers decide enough is enough and get out their cars and start moving them.

 

'Cut motorway speed limit so we can block road', demand M25 protesters (msn.com)

The police should be moving these selfish people on instead of providing them with water on hot September days.  This is another situation where the army should be brought into to restore law and order.

anti-Covid lockdown protesters

Brexit supportrs

farmers

delivery drivers

oil tanker drivers

taxi drivers

lorry drivers

resident groups

anti pollution protestors etc., etc.?

As it happens I would assuming it's a major road and is causing disruption and inconvenience to innocent  normal law abiding people.  I note you included Brexit supporters in your list who I am not aware of blocking any roads. Brexit supporters did have various marches to counteract the anti Brexit / anti democratic marchers and protests but I never supported them doing so.

 

Just for completeness, I think during the time of a pandemic a kind of martial law should apply in which all major protests likely to cause any disruption should be banned.  The "Insulate Britain Mob" are an utter disgrace in my opinion by their selfish actions at a time when normal hardworking people are doing their best to get the economy moving and growing again after suffering 18 months of a pandemic.

Many groups of protestors have in the past have threatened or actually blocked our main roads including pro Brexit activists.

It is a common method of protest in the US and Europe.

The army would not have a clue what to do.

Shooting farmers and fishermen?

Driving tanks over tree huggers?

Firing missiles at lorry drivers?

Mining taxis?

 

When you have replaced the democratically elected representatives with soldiers, who will be in charge of selecting who the army points their weapons at?

Is using the army as a political weapon against a minority acceptable?

Is replacing democratically elected representatives with soldiers in order to remove some tree hugger off a road sensible?

Who is in charge of the army?

 

Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Tiananmen Square? 

Are you serious?

Why would the army need any weapons to remove or persuade the "Insulate Britain Mob" to leave a motorway?  I've not suggested replacing democracy with soldiers or the army using military weapons against their own people.  The army didn't need guns to drive green goddesses or help with emergency flood defences.  They haven't needed guns when helping out with the vaccine program.  The army is a much under used domestic resource in our country and it makes common sense to use them to help the police keep law and order in this country and in the process stop motorways being blocked by selfish people. While the police are dealing with blocked motorways they are not dealing with other criminal activity or keeping other people safe.

So you remember the total failure of the Green Goddesses in Sheffield. Most were removed and replaced by RAF and civilian firefighters from Finningley etc, we called them 'Misson Impossible' after what was supposed to be the top secret bases around Misson. 

You may also remember how quickly trust in the army evaporated in all the communities in Northern Ireland. 

 

What can a soldier do (illegally) that a police officer can do legally? The soldier has no training and no equipment and no   experience and no authority.

The experience of Northern Ireland established that soldiers performance after involvement in a civilian environment in their own country are permanently adversely effected.

During the anti nuclear protests around our bases soldiers were never exposed to civilians as they and their equipment were designed and trained to kill 'spetsnaz' not confront civilians. Police were even deployed to protect protestors and soldiers(paticularly American) from each other.

It's pointless continually to attempt to reason with you when you lack the common sense to realise a better use of our country's current resources would be to make better use of the army to police mass demonstrations and protests where large numbers of regular police officers are currently required to establish law and order.

As you say yourself there is a need "...to police mass demonstrations and protests...".

The best equipped, trained, experienced, available people "...to police mass demonstrations and protests..." are the police.

 

The lack of Police is a result of how you vote. 

 

The introduction of Martial law to allow Soldiers to confront/remove farmers, fishermen, anti-lockdown, Brexiteers, taxi drivers, tax protestors, greens and other civilians is ridiculous and smacks of the anti democratic communist and fascist states.

 

The fact is we are a democracy and people do protest.

Exactly correct ,I didn't notice that one and neither did most people due to the lack of support the planned protest obviously got.  I appreciate your good work in supporting my point that Brexit supporters didn't go about causing major road blocks and chose using the ballot box to get the 2016 EU referendum result implemented.
