How many more days do we have to put up with the eco-terrorists of that cult Just Stop Oil blocking the M25 and risking death and injury to ordinary folk?

Well, it happened again.

For the fourth day in a row there were multiple incidents of roads being shut as the group scaled gantries, providing more proof that our woke police and weak justice system don’t have the stomach to stop these criminal lunatics.

Of course, the human toll of this criminality has already been significant for hardworking Brits forced to lose work, miss cancer appointments or, in the tragic case of Tony Bambury, who traumatically lost the opportunity to be the pallbearer at the funeral of his own father.

But the common crime of Just Stop Oil simply don’t give a damn.

That’s what happens when you’re a member of a doomsday cult so brainwashed by propaganda that you lose your humanity, compassion and brain.

That was obvious for all to see on our sofa last night as two Just Stop Oil spokespeople made it clear they don’t care if Brits die as a result of their criminal campaign of terror – even though the facts show the UK is leading the world in reducing carbon emissions, with China being the real problem.

Superwoman Suella Braverman is on the side of the public when it comes to Just Stop Oil and knows that the police are now part of the problem.

In an important speech to the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners and National Police Chiefs' Council, the Home Secretary conceded the police had “lost confidence in themselves” and were suffering from an “institutional reluctance” to tackle disruptive groups like Just Stop Oil which were now – in her words – “out of control”.

The Home Secretary is right to say that too often the rights of criminal activists are being placed above the rights of hardworking Brits, with their actions bringing misery and chaos to the law-abiding majority.

It’s bringing a sense of lawlessness to our streets, which I fear could one day be exploited by a more traditional terrorist organisation.

Members of the North London champagne socialist chattering classes, like the unleashed ex-BBC leftie Emily Maitlis, might compare these criminals to the suffragettes and civil rights leaders.

But Maitlis is wrong, the woke judges are wrong and the soft touch police are wrong.

Just Stop Oil are on a dangerous criminal campaign putting our safety at risk – appeasement has failed and past sentences have clearly been far too short to deter this madness.
