I’d leave Just Stop Oil protesters on gantries but I’m not allowed, says Met chief
Sir Mark Rowley blames MPs for leaving a ‘grey space’ about what is lawful and what is disruption as activists cause further disruption
Highways Agency says no. Because of the wrong incentives of course. HA only gets shouted at over deaths on the road, not traffic flow. So, the remote chance of death from distraction worries them more than it should.
The solution is obviously, obviously.
The chief of the Metropolitan Police has said he would like to be able to leave anti-fossil fuel protestors hanging from motorway gantries, but that he is not allowed to.
They hang themselves up there, so padlock them to where they’re hanging. Then leave them. Be a month before any bits drop off to worry the passing motorists.
