Insulate Britain’s Liam Norton admits he is a ‘hypocrite’ who ‘doesn’t care’ about insulation

The ringleader of eco-fanatics Insulate Britain who have terrorised British road users in recent weeks has sarcastically admitted he is a ‘hypocrite’ who ‘doesn’t care’ about insulation.

Liam Norton, 36, made the bizarre admission while being interviewed by talkRadio presenter Cristo Foufas on his failure to run an energy-efficient home on Saturday morning.

When asked by Foufas why the ardent eco-warrior has failed to insulate his own £360,000 London flat, Norton jokingly replies: ‘Because I’m a hypocrite’. 

After being challenged on comments he made in which he claimed climate change would result in ‘millions of people losing their lives through slaughter and starvation’, a deadpan Norton says: ‘I know, I’m terrible aren’t I?’

The electrician then went on to sarcastically say: ‘I don’t particularly care about insulation.’ 

Mr Norton, who made headlines weeks ago when he stormed off ITV’s GMB after being challenged by host Susanna Reid, is said to be masterminding Insulate Britain’s M25 protests.

Mr Norton is pictured being arrested after a slip road from the M25 at Junction 14, close to London's Heathrow Airport, was blocked by Insulate Britain on September 27

Mr Norton’s baffling admission is the latest in a string of high profile car crash interviews with the media.  

Presenter Cristo Foufas pressed the eco-warrior on his own actions, asking: ‘Do you understand why people will think, well, this guy doesn’t care about insulation, he only cares about causing disruption and trying to make a name for himself?’

Norton replied: ‘Yeah, they’re right. I don’t particularly care about insulation.’ 

The electrician also admitted his fellow protesters have been left ‘mystified’ by the lack of punishment they have so far faced. 

‘We’re just as mystified as the rest of the British public as to why Priti Patel hasn’t put us into prison,’ he told Foufas.

‘She’s got the ability to remand us into prison for public nuisance, criminal damage, and the British people should be asking why they haven’t chosen to do that, as we’re just as mystified as anyone else.’  

His comments are likely to infuriate the tens of thousands of Brits who have been forced to watch Insulate Britain’s disruptive tactics go ahead undeterred by police forces across the south east.  

This week, around 40 demonstrators from the hated group were seen sitting on the road at junction 25 of the M25 at Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, and on the A501 at Old Street roundabout.

The group descended on both locations at around 9am on Friday, with the Met tweeting three hours later to say the roads had been cleared after 16 arrests on the M25 and 19 by the roundabout.

But TfL has been granted a High Court injunction to ban the controversial protesters from blocking traffic in various locations across the English capital, such as Vauxhall Bridge, Tower Bridge, London Bridge and Chiswick roundabout.

The injunction also applies to busy London spots including Hanger Lane, the Hammersmith gyratory system, Blackwall Tunnel, the A501 ring road from Edgware Road to Old Street, Staples Corner, Redbridge roundabout and the Kidbrooke interchange.

Protesters will no longer be allowed to block Park Lane, Marble Arch Hyde Park Corner, Elephant and Castle – including all entry and exit roads and the Victoria one-way system.

Two of the motorway bandits were lambasted by a furious mother whose daughter was late for classes due to their actions, who told them: ‘It’s backing up, all because all you care about is insulating houses.

‘My daughter is late to school, you are messing with children’s education because you are selfish. I hope you got that on camera, I think they are a disgrace.’

The much-hated organisation have urged the government to fund nationwide insulation projects in all social housing by 2025.

But the group’s spokesperson, Mr Norton, generates more carbon emissions than most of his neighbours with a home that has ‘no roof insulation’; ‘no cavity wall insulation’; ‘poor heating control’ and ‘very poor lighting’.

The two-bedroom, first-floor flat in Streatham, south London, has an energy rating of E – the lowest category permitted for rental properties.

The home, which measures just 46 square metres, pumps out four tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, its Energy Performance Certificate [EPC] reveals.

However, last month Norton told TV presenter Susannah Reid the lack of insulation at his own home was not relevant when she challenged him during a live interview on Good Morning Britain.

He said: ‘Whether or not my home is insulated doesn’t change the fact that millions of homes are not insulated.’

Asked why he had not insulated his home, he replied: ‘You know insulation costs thousands, tens of thousands [of pounds].’

Norton, who has not taken part in any of the sit-down protests, later clashed with Reid’s co-presenter Richard Madeley when he compared the actions of Insulate Britain to Churchill’s stance against Adolf Hitler in the 1930s, before storming out of the studio.
