Priti Patel – 2021 Comments on Extended Legal Action Against Protesters

The comments made by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, on 24 September 2021.

The British public are rightly furious that the behaviours of a selfish minority have been putting lives at risk and causing untold disruption on our roads and now at Dover. We will not tolerate the recklessness of these few activists and the police continue to have our full support in cracking down on their dangerous behaviour.

The public and the police want officers back serving their communities and cutting crime, not dealing with people happy to put the safety and needs of others at risk.
