A leader of the group that fights for better insulated homes has said he ‘does not like insulation very much’.

For the past four weeks, Insulate Britain activists have been blocking major roads and motorways to promote their environmental goals.

In a bizarre interview with talkRADIO, Liam Norton was asked why he has not isolated his own home.

He replied, ‘Because I am a hypocrite.’

Host Cristo Foufas agreed that it was a ‘reasonable accusation’ given his group’s goals.

Liam replied, ‘Yes, I know. I’m not terrible? ‘

Confused, Cristo pushed him further and asked, ‘Do you understand why people will think this guy does not care about isolation, he only cares about causing disruption and trying to make a name for himself?’

The activist replied: ‘Yes, they are right. I’m not very interested in insulation. ‘

Liam spoke to talkRADIO TV today, admitting surprise that a high court order threatening protesters with up to two years in prison if they block the M25 again had not been used.

He said: ‘There is a consequence of disruption and the kind of disruption we have seen over the last four weeks.

‘We are as mystified as the rest of the British public as to why [home secretary] Priti Patel has not put us in jail.

‘She has the option of remanding us in custody for public nuisance, criminal damage, and the British people should ask why they have not chosen to do so as we are just as mystified as everyone else.’

Last month Liam went out of an interview on Good Morning Britain in the middle of a heated clash over the M25 protests.

Before doing so, he admitted that his house had not been insulated, is single glazed and uses gas central heating.

Insulate Britain wants the Prime Minister to commit to retrofitting 29 million homes by 2030 to tackle climate change and burn poverty at the same time.
