Claire Perry Has “Good And Productive Chat” With Far Left Rabble

April 14, 2019

A Business Minister was last night facing questions about why she met members of a radical environmental group which is plotting to paralyse London this week.

Claire Perry held meetings with the Extinction Rebellion (XR) group at a climate change conference in Poland in November.

Ms Perry told The Mail on Sunday she had a ‘good and productive chat’ with the activists, who have links to Labour’s far-Left Momentum faction and are preparing a new onslaught of civil disobedience and criminality conceived with military precision to bring Britain to its knees.

It comes as an undercover investigation by this newspaper has revealed a hardcore movement determined to turn the clock back to a life without fossil fuel – and usurping Parliamentary democracy in the process.

The first stage of their global ‘Rebellion Week’ begins tomorrow and involves a plot to paralyse central London for at least three days, creating human barricades at five key points: Marble Arch, Oxford Circus, Waterloo Bridge, Parliament Square and Piccadilly Circus.

Some protesters are even planning to super-glue their hands to objects in the road and each other, requiring specially trained police officers to laboriously unstick them using chemicals.

Ms Perry met members of the group at a summit in Katowice. She said: ‘We had a good and productive chat and have been in correspondence since.’

Organisers have talked of up to 30,000 eco-activists attending mass protests – and crucially many of them being arrested.

The protests have been seven months in the planning.

Their goal is to shut down vital roads and transport links, causing misery for millions of commuters and keeping over-stretched police officers busy for hours.

 

Full story here.

 

What on earth does Claire Perry think she is doing by meeting this far left rabble? And what did that “‘good and productive chat’ involve?

Extinction Rebellion have zero interest in whatever she has to say about UK emissions. They only have one agenda – the end of capitalism.

    Did an inside story too.

    My local Argus news site constantly posts XR and Kid strike stories as though they are heroic protesters. Of course after countering with some truth about the nature of the organisation(s) and some scientific facts in response to various claims, I was banned!

    Thank goodness former London Mayor Boris had the foresight and good sense to buy water cannon to mitigate the disruption that mindless protests and demonstrations might bring.
    Oh wait a minute…the then Home Secretary (Theresa May) publicly humiliated him by refusing to allow them to be deployed.

    Being 5,000 miles away, I say “Go for it.”
    If some glue themselves to whatever, spray them with bright orange coloring, leave them alone, and move around them.
    Or, declare a 3 day National vacation and normal folks (if there are any in London) could visit other parts of your Island. Great opportunity to learn about nature, history, and get some exercise.

    Another alternative:
    It has been reported that Antarctica has warmed sufficiently that it is ready for settlers willing to set up a society without carbon based fuels, free of autos, communications, and meat protein. 30,000 seems like just the right number, and they are already organized.
    All Britain needs to do is provide transportation.

      I’m all for just letting them glue themselves to together and stand there for three days, a week, whatever. Work around them or have all “non-essential” personnel stay home for as long as the fools are out there. With any luck, a down pour, high wind and other nasty weather will occur. Let them have their “fun”.

    The Tory Cllr David Renard, Leader of Swindon Borough Council has also caved in

    He gets a kicking in the comments

    • April 14, 2019 4:41 pm

      Presumably the kicking is based on misuse of council tax.

    From Claire Perry’s Wikipedia early life entry

    “One of her contemporaries at Brasenose was George Monbiot, who described her in his column for The Guardian as, at the time, “a firebrand who wanted to nationalise the banks and overthrow capitalism”

    Time to send in the troops I say

    • April 14, 2019 4:38 pm

      I agree, even without known threats, the army should have a high profile presence at all key infrastructure installations (not including wind farms), they would have to do this in wartime, so would be good training for them.

    BBC news had an extensive article on XR earlier.

    They never once asked themselves if all their own relentless irresponsible climate alarmist fake news might have given some sort of legitimacy to XR.

    They are a highly organised minority, albeit clearly completely deluded and lead by the deranged. They could do a lot of damage before they inevitably implode and fade away like all their previous incarnations with similar aims (occupy etc.)

    • April 14, 2019 9:14 pm

      The beeb will no doubt be among their targets in order to achieve maximum media coverage.

      Let’s hope the folk of London treat them with the respect they deserve.

      In the long run it is this sort of behaviour, rather than Brexit, which is going to be the final nail in the coffin of the Conservative Party. Since losing power in 1997 they have fallen prey to every snake-oil spin doctor and hypnotist around (from Alistair Campbell on) trying to persuade them to ditch all the policies and beliefs that have been their strengths for decades and — forgive the mixed metaphor — the flea-bitten chickens will come home to roost very soon unless they genuinely reconnect with the real grass roots.

      Moving away from their traditional right-of-centre ground in either direction will be the death of them. And serve them right!

        Mike, it started long before that for the Conservative Party. They messed up badly with the introduction of the Community Charge (broadly a good idea) and Labour were able to bring a mob out onto the streets and impose a Labour tax on everyone. The Major administration continued the downward slide. We now know why.

        Certainly, David Cameron (with Theresa May’s helpful slogan) ramped things further downward but the rot started with Thatcher, if not Heath.

    Assuming that Claire Perry told XR about the UK’s successful (but completely unnecessary)strides to limit its carbon emissions, why is XR mounting this campaign?

    This ‘Good and productive chat’ with XR is straight from the playbook of Corbyn, who has had such ‘chats’ with every terrorist and anti-British group you can imagine, over the last 50 years.
    We really do need to drain the swamp.

  13. April 14, 2019 9:39 pm

    Reblogged this on WeatherAction News and commented:
    Piers Corbyn is a socialist and has a complete disdain for the ‘fools’ that are ER:
    To any #ExtinctionRebellion (#XR) followers we advise you to quit that FakeProtest Tool** of ExxonMobil-BigOil, 5G-oligarchs and WallStreet Super Corporations pushing climate lies, FuelPoverty + SocialCleansing. Stop being a tool.
    He’s also said ER are anti-democratic & work to enable super corporations and UN-EU DIKTATS to plunder us and destroy our rights and living standards.
    Here he is speaking on them a few months ago

    The idea of Claire Perry meeting with them is ominous to say the least 🤔

  14. April 14, 2019 9:41 pm

    Friday’s Beyond Today podcast was entirely about XR
    Are Extinction Rebellion the new Suffragettes?
    – “We also spoke to Phil Jones, who edits the Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2. Phil told us about the climate change phone-in that angered the nation and a mix-up that ended with Extinction Rebellion members being hauled from the Radio 2 studio by police.”

    Nice of the BBC to give this organisation the publicity it craves.
    I was checking out their website and came across this claim in on one of their video presentations:
    “33000 puffins counted in the last nationwide census In 2000 have plummeted to just 570 individuals.”
    No source given for this “fact”, but it doesn’t sound right to me.
    I also asked them how they propose that CO2 emissions could be reduced to net zero as soon as 2025.
    Their reply was that they leave the solutions to others, otherwise they don’t know.

    • April 14, 2019 10:00 pm

      Any links?

    • April 14, 2019 10:04 pm

      It is a deliberate policy not to have any specific policies, if that makes sense. They only have general aims, because as soon as they prescribe what must be done, some people disagree and the group begins to splinter.

      Healthy numbers of puffins already arrived off the Pembrokeshire coast:

      In fact, they’ll be even healthier in 6 months time if they decided to cull the number of black-backed gulls. Just saying…..

        If the figures quoted by ER are correct, then it must be at a specific location but without details of the impossible to tell. I suspect the Puffins moved elsewhere and to say the population fell from 33000 to 570 is misleading.
        I have asked for a source.

      It would be better if you didn’t vote Conservative as the party is no longer conservative not just because their childish infighting over Brexit has and is damaging the economy.

    Perry is a shining example of the Blue Labour party where most of its policies would sit happily with New Labour and even the current Red Labour.
