Activists from Just Stop Oil have sprayed 55 Tufton Street, home to a number of influential right-wing think tanks, with orange paint.
Dubbed “the other black door shaping British politics“, the London address houses think-tanks influential in shaping Liz Truss’s agenda as prime minister, and was doused with paint as she departed Downing Street.
The activists also glued themselves to the road, accusing think tanks including the Global Warming Policy Foundation of being a threat to the environment.
“We’re on the streets of London because politics is broken. It was broken here in Tufton Street by shady, opaquely funded lobbyists who now stalk the corridors of power, thanks to Liz Truss,” a spokesperson for Just Stop Oil said.
“Their bankrupt ideas have brought the economy to its knees but it’s much worse than that.”
