OK at the risk of discussing a topic on here other than an Indy Scotland or Brexit, here goes.

What on earth does this Extinction Rebellion protest achieve. All these protestors stopping people getting to work, having appointments to go to, and being prevented from going about their dayto day business, possibly achieve.

I see these protests as nothing more than a nuisance to ordinary folk.

What are they achieving?

Give them a warning and then remove them by force if necessary, they cannot be allowed to disrupt normal life.

I agree. This sort of protest does nothing for their cause. Taking a high and mighty approach to the future of the world and climate is not their perogative as if the rest of us don’t care.

It disgusts me that ordinary people have been stopped from going about their lives.

Furthermore, the huge amount of police resources to man them, where the police would be better utilised elsewhere!

Hypocrites the lot. I bet they drive cars, watch tv, take flying holidays, as well as long haul flights.

Or help hang on, perhaps I am too quick to judge, they all probably live like saints, walk everywhere don’t ever fly or watch tv, don’t ever abuse the earth, and have little junk to put in their recycling bins.

How judgemental of me, bad girl tongue.gif
