An Extinction Rebellion campaigner calling for “urgent action” against climate change admitted he took a taxi today because he was in a “terrible rush”.
After Rupert Read made the admission, Iain Dale asked him: “Don’t you feel that’s slightly hypocritical?”
Mr Read replied: “No I don’t Iain.”
To which the LBC presenter responded: “I think everybody listening to this interview will.”
The remarks came following the third day of climate protests which have brought parts of London to a standstill.
The Met Police said more than 340 people had been arrested so far.
