The Insulate Britain activist was asked if her own home was insulated after her organisation brought misery to thousands of Britons with weeks of protests demanding a better insulation strategy for the UK. TalkRADIO presenter Claudia-Liza Vanderpuije challenged Ms Mallaghan after a new report showed the demonstrations from the Extinction Rebellion offshoot group cost taxpayers an estimated £4.3 million this year. Ms Vanderpuije asked: “Listeners are asking if you’ve had your home insulated.

But Ms Vanderpuije hit back: “Tracy, you cost taxpayers £4.3 million, calling on people to insulate their homes and your home isn’t insulated.”

He said: “Not only did their guerrilla tactics wreak havoc on our roads and inflict misery to thousands of motorists, but they diverted our emergency services away from vital work, costing the UK taxpayer millions in the process.”
Met Police Federation chairman Ken Marsh blasted the “staggering” cost and said: “Unfortunately we have to police what’s put in front of us.
“It’s disgusting that we’re having to spend that sort of money on these protests.”
He added that responding to the demonstrations on 70mph motorways was “some of the most dangerous things my colleagues have had to do”.
