Letter: Activists are creating too much disruption for members of the public

Isn’t it amazing that our law enforcers have become so timid while dealing with those motley folk who create appalling disruption to us mere mortals, who are just trying to go about our everyday lives.

They think that they are the planet’s saviours and, by their acts, such as closing bridges, sitting glued to roads, defacing artworks and buildings, that they will attract support for these activities.

How wrong can they be.

Most of us are well aware of the need to reduce our carbon footprint and recycle when possible.

A letter this week about Just Stop Oil protestors.

Those Just Stop Oil demonstrators will presumably ensure that any benefit payments they receive, or pension funds they pay into, don’t include any contribution from one of their ‘demons’, for example, Shell.

I wonder which brands of adhesive they use for glueing themselves to the road – hope they aren’t oil-based!
