TalkRADIO host Kevin O’Sullivan has brutally savaged the climate change group Insulate Britain during a fiery clash with the organization’s spokesman. Liam Norton was confronted by the radio host over the group’s disruptive protests in recent weeks that have caused carnage for road users. Mr O’Sullivan slammed Insulate Britain activists as “attention seekers” before stating they were “all failures!”
Mr O’Sullivan told the Insulate Britain spokesman: “You all suffer from a psychological problem.
“You are attention seekers.
“You are holier than thou you are pious.
“You want to look down on the rest of us.
“And you are anti-modernist, you don’t like the modern world,” added the radio host.
“You don’t like cars, you are all failures.
“You don’t like people succeeding.”
It comes as the climate group announced it had suspended road-blocking protests.
The group – which has caused misery for drivers with protesters sitting on the M25 motorway and other major roads – said it will stop its “campaign of civil resistance” until October 25.
In a letter to Boris Johnson, the group wrote: “Insulate Britain would like to take this opportunity to profoundly acknowledge the disruption caused over the past five weeks.
“We cannot imagine undertaking such acts in normal circumstances. But the dire reality of our situation has to be faced.
“We invite you to make a meaningful statement that we can trust… that your Government will take the lead needed to insulate and retrofit our homes.”

Insulate Britain has blocked roads on 14 days over the past five weeks, with activists often gluing their hands to the carriageway to increase the length of time it takes for police to remove them.
Hundreds of arrests were made, with some people detained several times.
Angry drivers often confronted the protesters and attempted to drag them away.
The latest demonstration was near a busy industrial estate in Thurrock, Essex, on Wednesday morning.
