I'm not really addressing that, I'm addressing why you think it's so unreasonable for some people to not immediately put the cause in front of the actions.

As I said if the idea is to affect change via civil disobedience then go for it, if you feel strongly enough about an issue then it's what you feel you must do. However the nature of how you go about that may or may not provoke a negative reaction from certain quarters of the public and that negative reaction is something that can be understood rather than written off with insults.

I find the concept of being 'put off' trying to save the planet because it made people late for work wholly mental

We're not talking about banning people smoking in pubs or having to muzzle certain breeds of dogs here. The world is on fire.

As said, if something such as this can put you off wanting to support change that will ultimately help benefit every single living organism on our planet you've surely got a spine made of cheese.

Provoking that negative reaction also has its benefits, as it puts climate change at the front and centre of the conversation.

Yep, I think this counter productive view is completely made up.

No way on this planet Gove comes out and says what he has otherwise, or it's at least very unlikely.

Protest and civil disobedience works and has done for hundreds of years.

What has protesting and civil disobedience ever achieved anyway?

We clearly need to insulate Britain so we don't have to create needless nuclear waste that will cost future generations billions to dispose of instead of squirting a bit of foam in a wall or roll out some wool.

Not saying their tactics are right but they got some guts.

When I walk round where I live and also on the train on many days of the year when it's sunny and see at the most 5% of houses with solar panels whilst we burn coal then you know you live in a country run by people who are making big money at our expense.

Equally I find it wholly mental that a group of individuals think that their cause is so worthy they can stop folk working and endanger lives.

Stinks of self importance and arrogance, I bet they are the type of people who put what they're having for tea on Facebook (with pics).

Recently my father fell down the stairs cut his head open and broke some ribs, I got there just after it happened and I thought he'd had it as he was struggling to breath.

The ambulance crew arrived in minutes and were fantastic. They reassured us it wasn't as bad as it looked and got him on the stretcher and off to hospital he went. Had anybody delayed them I would have beat the living daylights out of them and so would anybody else in that position.

Had you been queued outside of A&E for hours sat in an ambulance would you have battered Boris & Co?

Pawl doesn’t want to address the real possibility of that happening and would sooner focus his anger on a hypothetical situation instead.
