The Tory MP, who was Mayor of the capital before Sadiq Khan, said that the Extinction Rebellion activists are right to be worried about the future of the planet. Mr Johnson, who is the bookies’ favourite to replace Theresa May as Tory leader, said in 2013 that he had an ‘open mind’ about the scale of global warming after heavy snow swept across Britain. But today he said: ‘I cannot find it in my heart — no matter how smug, irritating and disruptive they may be — to condemn these protesters today. They are right to draw attention to the loss of habitat, and the extinction of species. They are also right to sound the alarm about all manner of man-made pollution, including CO2’. He added: ‘Surely this is the time for the protesters to take their pink boat to Tiananmen Square, and lecture them in the way they have been lecturing us’. Protesters who caused a week of havoc in London have said they are willing to ‘pause’ their protests – but only if their demands are met. In an audacious attempt to try to control the debate, Extinction Rebellion activists said they want to start a ‘new phase of rebellion’ and enter into political negotiations with MPs who return from their Easter break tomorrow.

well I think the right to peaceful protest is just that it's a right it's at one of the cornerstones of our democracy I am concerned though if people are risking their own safety or the safety of others but also I'm concerned on the impact on public transport I'm somebody who believes passionately there's a climate of urgency we got to take action but if you're by your actions reducing the numbers using public transport you're not helping the cause so what I'd say to the protesters please not work with us the the police TfL to make sure what you're doing is not risking your personal safety or the personal safety of others all caused in inadvertent damage you don't intend to do
