Finally, a rebellion against Extinction Rebellion
For more than a week now the XR elitists have been disrupting everyday life. They've stopped flights from taking off, preventing people from going on well-earned holidays or visiting loved ones abroad. They've clogged up roads in city centres, irritating cab drivers and people on buses. And they've stormed Smithfield meat market and Billingsgate fish market - smug middle-class vegans lecturing hard-working traders about the correct way to think and live.
The people are rising up against the elites. No, I don't mean Extinction
Rebellion. I mean the Rebellion against Extinction Rebellion. Today's clashes on the
Tube between the commuting working classes and the time-rich, bourgeois
fearmongers of the XR cult is a wonderful illustration of the elitist nature of
eco-politics and of rising public fury with the eco-agenda.
