Nobody's really sure but if they keep it up there will be martyrs.

Their antics are a bit 'look at me'.
These attention seekers do not think through their actions. Their campaign is a worthy one but are losing the publics support with these disruptive protests.

And breaking a High Court injunction in the process
Is it the government's responsibility to insulate houses, or the homeowners?
Their spokesman, an oafish ignoramus who led the protest which stopped all traffic on the M25 leading to the unfortunate death of a woman victim of a stroke who was being rushed to hospital, says it's to make everyone insulate their homes & somehow save the world, it turns out that he hasn't even insulated his own house!
Did that poor lady die, Khandro?
Yes
They've blood on their hands. Cretins!
It's one of the most pointless protests I've ever come across. They need a PR person because what they are doing isn't winning them any supporters.
I saw the clip of him walking out of an interview on GMB. A case of do as I say and not what I would do with him I think.

One of their "leaders" was on sky news this morning saying "what we need is public support" - well I'll tell how not to get it me old china, do what you are doing now! what a bunch of ***.
As I understand it, the protesters feel that legitimate methods of protest are simply ignored, so they are reduced to drastic action that causes maximum disruption, and media attention, to draw interest to their viewpoint.

The fact that it is going to provide the direct opposite response is something that people who think like this tend not to factor in to their deliberations.
why are they so bothered about loft insulation anyway?
Because insulating your house reduces heating costs and therefore helps the environment
TTT - // why are they so bothered about loft insulation anyway? //

I would imagine that they believe that the utterly minuscule amount of energy saved in global terms is worth disrupting the lives of thousands of people.

Ours was done free of charge some years back by our local council ?

By cavity wall insulation I should add
redhelen: "Because insulating your house reduces heating costs and therefore helps the environment " - so why are they picking on the world's no 2 climate change responder? I imagine that there are a lot more un insulated homes in China, India, USA etc.
