LBC chaos as protester tapes himself to mic and refuses to leave


Just Stop Oil activist Nathan McGovern taped himself to an LBC microphone during an interview with presenter Tom Swabrick

Radio station LBC was thrown into chaos on Sunday morning when a guest taped himself to a microphone and refused to leave the studio.

Just Stop Oil announcer Nathan McGovern had been chatting with presenter Tom Swabrick when he was struggling with the channel’s handling of its eco-friendly message.

McGovern accused LBC of “not using their massive platform” to share the dangers of climate change while pulling out a tube of glue.

Then he put his palm to the microphone.

Alerting listeners to what was going on, Swarbrick said: “For those of you who are wondering what the mic tapping is, Mr McGovern seems to have you taped to the mic? This is fantastic.”

Explaining his approach, McGovern told the host: “You have a huge platform, a microphone that you can use to tell people about the situation that we’re in and you’re not using it.

“An ordinary person like me needs to pick up the mic and tell viewers what situation we’re in.”

He added: “I have to take the mic in a situation like this and tell people what situation we’re in because people like you won’t do it.”

The incident resulted in Swabrick having to change studios in order to continue his show.

Following the drama, Just Stop Oil released a statement on social media.

“Each new oil and gas facility tightens the noose around the necks of our young people.

“If the media doesn’t communicate their predicament, they have no choice but to pick up the microphone,” they insisted.
