Nick Ferrari is launching his new campaign to give police greater powers when dealing with protests which cause serious public disorder, such as Extinction Rebellion.
The XR protests cost the Metropolitan Police more than £40million, which included overtime for officers and mutual aid to move police across the country to support their efforts in London.
That money could have funded the Met's Violent Crime Taskforce for almost three years.
Nick Ferrari says ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
Nick Ferrari's Enough is Enough campaign is calling for the government to give officers greater powers so they can do their job more effectively.
Currently, the Public Order Act gives the power to prohibit protest marches which cause serious public disorder - but not any other form of protest. Nick is starting his campaign to amend that to include the tactics used by groups like XR.
