Is it not an offence to obstruct an emergency vehicle, peaceful protest or not?
Any traffic, any highway:

“If a person, without lawful authority or excuse, in any way wilfully obstructs the free passage along a highway he is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine...”

s.137, Highways Act 1980

I guess we don't have enough senior policemen who are willing to authorise an arrest?
ln other piss-boiling news, l see that the same gang of soap-dodgers have been allowed to dig up the ancient lawn in front of one of Cambridge’s colleges; the dons responding bravely by clutching each other’s pearls and whining that the college is researching global warming, so can they be eaten last, please?

Floods badly hitting Hereford. Saw a farmer reacting on TV, 160 acres of his land underwater, he says this goes far beyond the usual floods locals are used to. It'll be mid-March at best before the water recedes enough for him to deal with the situation. Crops will be lost. Other farmers not wanting to evacuate because they are sheltering animals in their houses.

despite the piss-poor, dangerous and abysmal rhetoric it probably isn't wrong that less people moving around is having a beneficial impact on the environment.

A fair few young kids are saying this virus is a great thing as it will kill everyone off. This generation is seriously messed up - but who's to blame?

They grew up in a world steeped in the apocalyptic, in culture, religion, politics... so it's no wonder.

I hope they like digging.... 'cos they'd be the ones disposing of all our virus-ravaged corpses for a quite a long time!

Vegan fakeburgers might not just have enough energy in 'em, either. Plus the factories that churn 'em out will have converted to processing bogroll, just no-one noticed from the taste. They might have to resort to fresh food, from a [boo hiss] farmer!!

A reduced global population is desirable, but I don't think the current health crisis will answer. Just not as efficient as universal education at reducing populations, innit.
