Norman Brennan Former Met officer Norman Brennan has told Insulate Britain’s Liam Norton that their cause will be “in the gutter” if they continue to protest on the M25, blocking exit slip roads on the London orbital motorway. The campaign group is calling for government action on home insulation and said its “actions will continue until the government makes a meaningful commitment to insulate all of Britain’s 29 million leaky homes by 2030”.

Norman Brennan told GB News: “Let me just be absolutely blunt and straight with you.

“For 42 years, I’ve been involved in law and order. For the last 30 years, I’ve advised the public.

“I have one of the most unique positions in Britain because I represent the police, victims of crime and the public.

“I have a passion about all three, if I think one is acting wrong, or one needs help or support or guidance or advice, I tell them that.”

He continued: “Mark let me leave you with this. I am a law-abiding member of the public, just like millions of other people

“At this moment in time, another member very close to me is very ill.

“I don’t know when I’m going to get the call to go and see her.

“If I get that call, and one of you are on that motorway because I’ll have to use the M25, or any other motorway.”

He went on: “This is not a threat. It’s a promise, and there are no police about to remove you out of the way so I can get to that location, hold that person’s hand for the last minute.

“I promise you this-I will lawfully and legally remove anybody in my way, and I will ask other members of the public to join me as a group.

“That’s not what I want, and I cannot believe I’m saying it.

“You asked if I’m angry. Yes, I am. I’ve told you all the reasons.”

Mr Brennan added:  “Two thirds of British people last week were not supporting you.

“Wou are going to lose even more support, and I’ll leave you with this thought to take back to your group.

“Is what you want what I’ve just suggested, because if it is, you are going to be challenging millions and millions of people, and your cause will be in the gutter.”

A further forty-one people have been arrested after climate activists held fresh protests on the M25.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, called the protests “irresponsible” and “dangerous”.
