Keir Starmer has described Just Stop Oil protesters as “arrogant”, claiming that the decision by the demonstrators to block roads is “wrong”.
In an LBC interview, the Labour leader was asked whether his party in government would ensure that there is “genuinely no more new oil and gas, as Just Stop Oil are asking for”.
Starmer said: “Let me just deal with Just Stop Oil because I think they’re wrong, I think their action is wrong. I particularly think about the images we’ve seen of ambulances coming down the road and not being able to get through because people have glued themselves to the road.”
He has been called out over his ‘hypocrisy’ however – with Aaron Bastani of Novara Media labelling him ‘The most two faced man in British public life.’
