Dale Vince claims rain stopped play at Wimbledon more than protesters
Furious energy minister Andrew Bowie has hit out at Labour for accepting money from a leading eco-zealot after Just Stop Oil protesters disrupted another major sporting event.
The fanatics today tried to ruin the Open golf championship having earlier this summer disrupted test cricket, Wimbledon and the British Formula 1 grand prix.
The high profile attacks on major events go along side regular attempts to block roads and vandalise buildings and works of art.
Starmer and the Labour Party have accepted donations from millionaire Dale Vince who is also bankrolling Just Stop Oil extremists.
Earlier this week, energy minister Grant Shapps demanded Labour pay for the damage done to his department’s building by Just Stop Oil and now Mr Bowier has followed suit.

Mr Bowie, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Nuclear and Networks, said: “Just Stop Oil has once again tried to ruin an important international event.
“These eco-zealots want to wreck our domestic industry and hand control of our energy security to foreign dictators like Putin. Their political wing, The Labour Party, is clearly all too happy to oblige – adopting their policies as their own.
“Enough is enough. Slippery Starmer needs to return the millions of pounds received from their chief bankroller Dale Vince and disavow their lunacy.”
At around 12.20pm the extremist group tweeted: “Three Just Stop Oil Supporters have disrupted The British Open – they demand that the UK government halts all new oil and gas projects.”
Security staff helped by American golfer Billy Horschel helped remove them.

Labour has so far refused to hand back any money to Mr Vince who, in turn, has increased his financial support for Just Stop Oil.
Recently, on BBC Question Time Mr Vince left the audience stunned when he tried to blame rain at Wimbledon on climate change.
However, there are concerns over the impact of Vince’s money on Labour policies with the prospect of them going into government next year.
Starmer has vowed to end exloration for oil and gas in the UK meaning that Britain will have to ship in supplies from abroad.
Until the war in Ukraine that had made Britain dependent on Russian gas even though it has plentiful supplies at a cheaper cost domestically.
In London labour are trying to punish drivers by expandin g the Ultra low Emmission Zone (ULEZ) which will add £12.50 costs a day for thousands of people.
Added to that the far left Labour government in Wales has banned road building because of “climate change”.
