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 the eco activists protests.
He confronted activists blocking the road on Blackfriars Bridge as central London traffic was brought to a standstill.
Grieves spoke to Patrick Christys on GB News and expressed no regrets for taking matters into his own hands.
He also took issue with the police due to their perceived inaction, advising them to follow the example of their German equivalents, who have taken to raiding the climate activist’s homes.
When Christys inquired if Grieves would challenge the protesters should he come across them again, he replied: “I would do it again. I don’t think what I did was wrong.
“The police officers should have been detained.
“There were two officers and one of them was violent, I’ve had a lot of messages saying it looked like the officer was out there to hurt me.
“I don’t believe that, but in this incident I do believe the Met has messed up.”
Grieves added that failing to get to work greatly affects his day-to-day earnings and financial situation, with countless others held up by Just Stop Oil protesters suffering from similar problems.
He said: “I just don’t understand why they’re going to stop members of the public from getting to work.
“The people they’re stopping are the people who are paying their taxes which actually goes into the fund which the government gets to spend. Why would they want to stop that?
“If you want to have a real affect, go to the people who can make a change.”
