Insulate Britan campaigner Cameron Ford has found himself in hot water with Sky News presenter Kay Burley after using expletives during an awkward on-air exchange. The climate activist launched a fiery rant against the climate policy of Boris Johnson’s Conservative government and urged Britons to “out on the streets in civil resistance.” However, the spokesman’s colorful choice of words provoked the anger of Ms Burley who swiftly ended the interview.
Mr Ford told Sky News: “We’re going to tell the audience that the next three to four years will determine the future of humanity.
“If people really connect with what [climate scientist] Sir David King has said there, then they will be out on the streets in civil resistance themselves, and they will need to come together in civil resistance against the treason this government is committing the empty promises.
“We need to be in civil resistance to the fuel poverty in this country to then selling off the NHS to then spewing s*** in our rivers and to the greed and corruption of the government.
“We need to rise up and be in civil resistance.

“Because when COP fails, what else is there to do?”
Ms Burley replied: “Okay, can we see you’ve got me in trouble again, now by using other words that we’re not allowed to use at breakfast time.
“Hopefully, you will come back on again.
“And hopefully, you’ll sort that potty mouth out, thanks so much.”

It comes following news that Insulate Britain activists are to switch up their protest tactics by walking towards oncoming traffic on the M25.
A spokesperson for the group said safety was “paramount” and the protests would not have proceeded if cars did not slow down sufficiently.
“The intention is to enter the carriageway and walk towards the oncoming traffic along the white lines,” the activist told the PA news agency.
“If cars don’t slow down and are hurtling along at full speed then we will be on the hard shoulder wearing our hi-vis with the banners.

“We would hope that it slows down anyway.
“We’ve had feedback that people are frustrated that they spent time in traffic queues.
“This is like a rolling traffic queue, so we’ll move, and once they get to the front they will be able to move on.
“We’re not planning to stop traffic but it could slow down to five miles an hour.”
