Exclusive Interview: Extinction Rebellion To Shut Down Heathrow Tomorrow - https://t.co/1uo38I3qi8

Great to be on @SkyNews this morning with @adamboultonSKY and @IanDunt talking everything from #NotreDame to #ExtinctionRebellion

As climate activists appear to be entirely middle class - nothing wrong with that - what’s the betting they’ve enjoyed a break in the last 12 months? But they’re sure as hell going to stop ours. #extictionrebellion

Some one got into a tizzy with me on ⁦@SkyNews⁩ this morning. I’m right wing and I’m a woman. Suck it up.

@HarrietSergeant @SkyNews @adamboultonSKY @IanDunt Well done @HarrietSergeant for mentioning what no politician dare do....population !! Unless this thorny issue is addressed emissions will continue to rise now matter how we might like to reduce them

Great to be on @SkyNews this morning with @adamboultonSKY and @IanDunt talking everything from #NotreDame to #ExtinctionRebellion

Are we surprised climate activists ignore the ballot box for the streets? They’ve seen what’s happened since the Referendum. Hardly an advert for democracy is it?

@HarrietSergeant @SkyNews @adamboultonSKY With the worlds population expected to be 10bn by 2050 this is the real issue

@HarrietSergeant @SkyNews @adamboultonSKY Made a very valid point about climate change...there’s just too many of us.

@tesssummers98 Mate Im only waching cos @HarrietSergeant is on this morning lol

I am on @SkyNews The View this morning at 9am with @adamboultonSKY. Will I make it through the climate activists in Westminster. Will they glue me to Sky’s coffee machine? All thrills to come.

Students demand all air travel stop. But themselves are at schools that arrange school trips on long haul flights all over the world. Just wonderful. #extictionrebellion

Brilliant idea. It's a pity our politicians have done nothing to bring us together. Mirror and Express team up for campaign to bring people together amid Brexit divisions: https://t.co/0BwwoPXCA4 - via:@pressgazette
