TalkRADIO host Kevin O’Sullivan savaged Insulate Britain’s spokesman during a heated debate about climate change.
The radio host challenged Liam Norton about the group’s recent violent protests that killed dozens of people on the road. Before declaring them “all failures!” Mr O’Sullivan derided Insulate Britain activists as “attention seekers.”
Isolate Britain spokesperson: “You all suffer from a psychological problem.”,” said Mr O’Sullivan.
“You are attention seekers.”
“You are holier than thou you are pious.”
The rest of us. “You want to look down on the rest of us,” he said.
In addition, the radio host claimed, “And you are anti-modernist, you don’t like the modern world,”
They said, “You don’t like cars, you are all failures.”
“You don’t like people succeeding.”
The news comes as the climate movement declared a halt to their roadblock demonstrations.
While protestors have blocked the M25 and other major routes, the organisation says it will cease its “campaign of civil resistance” till October 25.
As the organisation put it in a letter to Boris Johnson, “Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks.”
“We cannot imagine undertaking such acts in normal circumstances. But the dire reality of our situation has to be faced.”
“We invite you to make a meaningful statement that we can trust… that your Government will take the lead needed to insulate and retrofit our homes.”
Activists with Insulate Britain have been obstructing traffic for five weeks, bonding their hands to the road to make it more difficult for police to remove them.
Hundreds of people were detained, some of whom were taken into custody more than once.
Disgruntled motorists frequently confronted the demonstrators and sought to fend them off with their vehicles.
On Wednesday morning, a protest took place outside an active industrial area in Thurrock, Essex.
