GB News presenter rages at the rise of 'remainer cyclists' determining policy for UK motorists

NIGEL FARAGE warned the revolt on Britain's roads has 'barely started as 'ridiculous' policy imposed by Labour councils are 'driving people out of cars.'

The GB News presenter warned that the ULEZ revolt had stepped up again and could get as big as the poll tax riots of the 1990s.

It comes as the Welsh Labour government provoked outrage by introducing a default 20mph speed limit on built up roads - a plan which is now facing Londoners.

Some 40 miles of the capital's roads will also be hit by 20 mph limits.


Farage explained: "I think that Wales in many ways is a test case of what Labour may be like.

"Although, let's not forget the Tories are not much better on any of this stuff. These twenty mile an hour speed limits are utterly ludicrous outside the school between 8:00 and 9:00 in the morning and 3.30 or four in the afternoon. I get it.

"If you really want to slow down traffic, put in speed bumps, and actually selectively, they can be very effective indeed.

"The idea that when I'm driving down the embankment at midnight, the dual carriageway embankment at midnight, that if I'm doing more than 22 miles an hour I'm going to get 3 three points and and at a fine of some kind.

"This is ridiculous. It is almost an attempt to drive people out of cars policy being made by cyclists.

"Remainer cyclists who live in central London or central Birmingham or central Bristol or central Bath, completely detached.

He continued: "But something very interesting is going on.

"This ULEZ revolt has stepped up today. I'm now seeing a ANPR vans. I'm now seeing ULEZ enforcement vans and they're now being vandalized.

And you know I'm not going to go down the Iain Duncan Smith route and praise those that break the law. I can't do that. I won't do that.

But let me tell you, you know, I live down, as you know, literally at the furthest point from central London where the cameras are and this is a revolt, and it has barely started.

"This is something very, very big. It's as big as the poll tax protests and riots that we had back in 1990s.

"We've been pushed too far. The poor are being taxed, small businesses are being hurt. We're being told to bow down before the God of net zero."
