DMcG BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2796* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 23 Sep 21


My biggest concern about the M25 protests is that they will alienate people rather than persuading people to be more concerned about the environment. If people are prevented from doing things they regard as important - going to work, getting to weddings, attending hospital appointments - it is likely to make them want to disassociate themselves from the protesters, not join them. This is similar to Extinction Rebellion losing public sympathy quite dramatically when they stopped a tube train at Canning Town which they later thought was a mistake.

Yes, they have got themselves into the news internationally, but have they succeeded in making people change their behaviour? Even worse, have they made some change it for the worse because they don't want to be associated with such actions?
