    Default The Unacceptable Face of Motorsport

    I see the middle aged crisis, middle class hand wringers of Extinction Rebellion had members arrested today at Silverstone Where a planned protest and disruption was avoided by security. How long before itís socially unacceptable in the UK to be into motorsports...?

    Well I hope they enjoyed their walk/ cycle there and back to there mud hunts. Iíd hate to think that they took transport that had an ICE or materials from a strip mine in Africa to get to and from the track; or used and devices that contain rare earth minerals to try and organise this.

    I think they do have some valid points; but they will make no friends going about it like a bunch of irrational hipocrytes. I guess they saw Silverstone as a soft target; why not housing industry, why not space etc etc?

    I engaged with some young activists when they were shutting down our street. It was quite sinister as I was discussing the engineering projects I have been involved in securing reduced / elimination of harmful emissions etc. (Wind farm design / alternative fuelled vehicles / reduced carbon footprint business and supply chain organisation and more.)

    After a few minutes the old lefty Ďhandlersí swan up and start revealing their solutions of smash capitalism and return to a more feral lifestyle.

    Absolute middle age crisis types who didnít grow out of student politics

    They only seem to agree with the parts that suit them, a very very blinkered view.

    Just ask them if they understand the difference between fission and fusion nuclear power. They will look at you like you have just set fire to some granny, with a bag of kittens.
    Part of me wants them to get into government, just to see how they deal with all the riots when everyone elses money has been spent, we have no food/clean water/and no transport. I predict all the woke ******* would then be strung up by mobs

    Nah, all these woke scum should be forced onto one big boat and sent to these left wing countries they idolise so much. Bet theyíd want to come back pretty darn quick, but donít let them, next wave send everyone that enabled the pricks. Iím happy to pay for the boat
