Its also the best way to get people against your cause.
Better to create a national discussion and make people take sides than to remain silent and wait for us to reach the point of no return.

I believe the government have bulldozers and snow plows dont they? Surely poking a few hooligans out of the way wouldnt be that hard for them.

Horse-whipping protestors? They’re being disruptive but they aren’t bringing anyone to harm. Calm down lads we aren’t in an Orwellian autocracy just yet!

I was with them today. The fact that we're discussing it shows it's having an impact. Everyone I met there was peaceful and whilst there were many who fit in with the hippy stereotype, many others, including myself, did not. The fact is we have the information and the resources to make changes but it's still not happening. We have tried research, we have tried petitions. This is the next step until something changes. Yes it may be an inconvenience but ultimately this is an emergency situation and thus I believe the response is justified.

When Brexiteers realise we definitely are not leaving and they have been duped, will you be ok with them bringing parts of the capital to a standstill whenever they want for as long as they want in an ongoing, neverending campaign.

I don't know why I'm asking because you'll only say yes.🙄

Look at the picture from the protests, they are a bunch of hippies.

"One of them"? One of what exactly?
One of the people who live up in cloud-cuckoo land and have no interest in the real world, it's quite popular these days and I have nothing but contempt for them anymore. That's 'one of what' exactly.

Get out the rubber bullets and water cannons and they will soon disperse.

Nah, I heard the Mayor of London on it yesterday and he went out of his way to avoid criticizing them or what they are doing to London. He actually said that his first concern is the safety of protesters, before adding that the public need some consideration too. It's his voting base, he doesn't want to upset them and he probably actually enjoys the anarchy in the streets. It's a whole tribe of lunatics and mentally deranged watermelons, this gang.

I have plenty interest in the "real world" it probably differs from which part of the world you focus on.

I actually work as a data analyst so most of my day is spent looking at real world data. Currently I'm looking at multi index deprivation in the UK.

There is no government, this country is totally ungoverned at the moment. It's mob-rule from now on. Where have you been?

Ah the days of ‘rule Britannia’ are truly dead.

Small business owners in the west end will disagree.

Wow, multi-index deprivation in the UK! Do you ever go out as part of the analysis or is it all done from behind a screen? Good luck with it, no matter what. If you have to go out, avoid Central London.

Currently my work focuses on Birmingham and since I live there I can draw from my own experience.

I always avoid London if I can.

We are living through the 6th major mass extinction. Half of the coral reefs are already dead. If facts like these don’t terrify you then I think it is you who are not in the “real world”. If you don’t think this sort of protest is effective then please go ahead and say what will make change happen on a major scale because god we need it.
