RICHARD MADELEY: There will be those who will draw the parallel between what you're saying and what one of the political elements of the wing of the IRA or of ISIS would say to justify violence in support of the cause. They believed in it passionately. What gives you the right to say that you have the overview that gives the authority to say you can do this. You have my support. Break the law.

CHRIS PACKHAM: I have no right and no overview, nor do I profess to have it. I merely ask the question, is this the right time for us to break the law.
