A wealthy environmentalist who supports Just Stop Oil financially is also contributing thousands of pounds to the Labour Party.
Dale Vince claimed he sent money to the opposition “so they can win, so they can get into government so they have the chance to deliver their plan, which is my agenda, social justice and a green economy.”
Through his Ecotricity electricity company, the 61-year-old vegan owner of Forest Green Rovers football club has donated £360,000 to the party since the last election.
Additionally, he provided £100,000 to deputy leader Angela Rayner and £20,000 to Sir Keir for their 2020 presidential campaigns. The Green Party has also received funding from him.
He is, however, one of Just Stop Oil’s biggest individual supporters, telling Sky News that he gave “tens of thousands of pounds” to the organization’s founding and more in November when it faced financial difficulties.
Even though he said that he occasionally disagreed with their strategies, he continued, “I understand why they do what they do.” It is within their ability to do so.
While we don’t really have a genuine response to this other than occasionally taking to the streets, big business has many powers to further its objectives.
Sir Keir has publicly criticized Just Stop Oil for stunts in which demonstrators have attacked works of art in galleries and glued themselves to roads to block traffic.
The 61-year-old vegan owner of Forest Green Rovers football club has given the party £360,000 since the last election via his Ecotricity power firm.
He said he sometimes disagreed with Just Stop Oil’s tactics, but added: ‘I understand why they do what they do. It’s what they have in their power to do.’

Mr. Vince, a multimillionaire self-made hippy, was once impoverished.
His first divorce from Kathleen Wyatt led to his transition to a nomadic lifestyle and new age traveler in 1984.
However, the concept for the company that would make him wealthy emerged after he built a wind turbine to power a trailer he was living in.
He established the Renewable Energy Company in 1995, and the following year he put his first wind turbine powered by “green energy” into operation.
It changed into Ecotricity, which generated about £165 million in sales in 2018.
He admitted to Sky that he had only ever had two encounters with Sir Keir and said, “I’m a big fan of his, the way he goes about things and the things he says.” I believe he’d make a fantastic prime minister.
I don’t really have a problem with what they are doing as long as it is non-violent, he remarked in April, adding that protestors who fix themselves to goals during Premier League games were hilarious. Protest involves disruption in one form or another.
However, it was revealed in November that Labour is planning to sentence activists to harsher punishments if the party wins the election.
Former Director of Public Prosecutions Sir Keir is reportedly determined to take action against those who have interfered with emergency services and caused suffering for citizens of Britain.
Labour is considering directing judges to impose harsher penalties where appropriate. The party is also advocating for the increased use of injunctions to stop demonstrators from blocking roads in order to cause as much havoc as possible.
