The scaffolder who was caught pushing two Just Stop Oil protesters off the road on camera says he would do it again. Louis Grieves, 21, was an hour late for work due to protests by eco-activists.
He confronted activists blocking the road on Blackfriars Bridge as central London traffic was paralyzed.
Grieves spoke with Patrick Christys about GB News and he did not express any regrets for taking matters into his own hands.
He also took issue with the police over their perceived inaction, advising them to follow the example of their German counterparts, who went on to raid the homes of climate activists.
When Christys asked if Grieves would defy the protesters if she encountered them again, she replied: “I would do it again. I don’t think what I did was wrong.
“The policemen should have been arrested.
“There were two officers and one of them was violent, I received many messages saying that it seemed that the officer was there to hurt me.
“I don’t think so, but in this incident I do believe that the Met has been wrong.”
Grieves added that not being able to go to work greatly affects their daily income and financial situation, and many others detained by Just Stop Oil protesters who suffer similar problems.
He said: “I just don’t understand why they would stop members of the public from going to work.
“The people they are detaining are the people who pay their taxes, which actually go into the fund that the government spends. Why would they want to stop that?
“If you want to have a real effect, go to the people who can make a change.”
