Motorist raging 'this is stupidity!' drives at Insulate Britain M25 protest as screaming woman drags eco-mob away
FURIOUS motorists yelled "this is stupidity" at a mob of gormless Insulate Britain eco zealots who blocked a road near Dartford Crossing.
One Brit drove directly into the stone-faced mob who sat across the tarmac in an industrial estate near to the Queen Elizabeth II bridge in Essex – a major transport route.
Footage then shows him rushing out of his car to accuse the group of "stupidity" as chaos breaks out close to Purfleet Freight Terminal.
Another man was filmed saying "this is not going to help" as he tries to reason with the mob.
He yells: "Why aren't you at work? Why are you stopping people from working?"
Another commuter on the industrial estate says: "My business is on it's knees. We have masses of haulage problems in the UK."
A frantic lorry driver was also captured heading directly into the demonstrators in a last-ditch attempt to get through.
Nearby Brits help by dragging the vest-clad protesters off the road themselves – but the lorry can only move forward an inch before they sit back down again.
Their desperate attempts break the barricade comes as wide-spread HGV driver shortages rage on, with hauliers desperate to deliver goods to Brits.
Meanwhile, demonstrators on the M25 clashed with police as they blocked Junction 31 in Thurrock, Essex.
The group were filmed being dragged off the tarmac by cops as they brazenly defied another injunction meant to stop them from causing disruption.
The group said that 40 "ordinary people" had blocked both the M25 and the London Road to demand that Boris Johnson starts insulating the "poorest people's" homes.
Insulate Britain supporter Diana Warner said drivers "thank" the group, including the police officers arresting them.
But clips of today's action suggest otherwise, with drivers seen dragging protests off the road themselves.
But the defiant eco mob quickly jump back into position and begin to block cars all over again.
On October 2, the government obtained a fresh injunction banning the group from obstructing traffic and access to motorways and major A roads around London.
Anyone who breaks the injunction faces imprisonment or an unlimited fine, and activists found in contempt of court may also be forced to repay the costs of their case.
