PROTESTERS from Just Stop Oil have blocked the road and sprayed orange paint on 55 Tufton Street – the Westminster address of many right-wing thinktanks, including some linked to Liz Truss’s failed mini-Budget.

The building is home to the Global Warming Policy Foundation, an organisation that has repeatedly pushed back against the cost of policies which address climate change.

A spokesperson for Just Stop Oil said: "Politics is broken. It was broken here in Tufton Street by shady lobbyists who now stalk the corridors of power.

“Liz Truss's toxic pro-oil policies helped end her career – and unless we ditch them, they'll finish us off too."

Footage posted on social media shows Peter, a 61-year-old retired bouncer, covering the façade of the Georgian townhouse with paint.

Standing outside the building he said: “We’re here today to fight the highly pernicious and avaricious nature of Big Oil.

“The Big Oil which will eventually force millions to be displaced from their low-lying countries.

“What happens when you get millions fleeing? You get famine, pestilence and war.

“The people in this building don’t care about that quite honestly. They’ve got their snouts in the trough.

“I’m just a normal guy from South London. I’m doing this for my kids and grandkids.”

A police spokesperson said: “Shortly after 11:15hrs on Tuesday, October 25, a group of approximately 10 protesters from Just Stop Oil blocked Horseferry Road, at the junction with Tufton Street.

“Officers are on scene and are working to re-open the road.”

It isn’t the first time the building has been subject to action by protesters.

Earlier this month three members of the protest group Led By Donkeys attached a mock blue plaque – which denote a building’s historical significance – to the brickwork outside.

It read: “The British economy crashed here” and featured the date of Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng’s disastrous mini-Budget.
