The pink boat has at last been dismantled by police, who had this to say this afternoon:-
So far today we have made 106 arrests. This brings the total to 682.
"The serious disruption the demonstrations are causing to people in London and beyond is unacceptable and we completely understand the concern it is causing to those who are disrupted by it"
What a pathetic response from a service that is there to uphold the law. I don't want my 'concern' about the illegal activities being understood, I want it acted upon. Petitioning the government is one way to get noticed, as are organised legal marches. Then there are MPs - they are there to listen to the concerns of their constituents.
Anything but the orchestrated obstruction of people who are going about their lawful business. Millions of us are concerned about climate change, and no doubt lots of us support research organisations and all kinds of initiatives in all kinds of ways.
We don't need it rammed down our throats by a bunch of activists, ill-informed celebrities and hangers on who think they know better than we do.
