Ge0rge: @dejadeadnz , your expert opinion please, if you wouldn't mind.
Let's ignore the irony of exposing bubbles by handing out flyers, talking through open car windows etc, if indeed that is the case.
I can understand what they are trying to achieve, however if was my understanding that it was illegal for the average person to set up a roadblock on a public road and prevent people from travelling along it.
If, and it's a big if, I am correct in that assumption, surely the Police "ordering it to be run correctly" (and what that does entail isn't disclosed) are then the Police not giving support and setting precedent to what is an illegal activity?
I doubt there's a legal basis for those roadblocks. That being said, even if they are a bit misguided, they are nonetheless well-meaning. The police probably have greater things to be bothered about and since they may have limited resources, they perhaps view these as a mild helping hand and have decided to let them continue provided they don't keep leaning into people's cars and keep the right distances etc. I am not too bothered by this one way or another.
