The measures, spearheaded by Home Secretary Priti Patel, would make non-violent protests which cause “serious annoyance or serious inconvenience” to others with a fine or, potentially, up to 10 years in jail.
To further make the point, Greta posted a picture of herself protesting peacefully and alone in the street. She captioned it: “Definite cause of serious annoyance”.

The bill, which looks set to be made law after being overwhelmingly backed by Tory MPs, was condemned by DUP MP Gavin Robinson as being drafted in such a “loose and lazy way” it would “make a dictator blush”.
But Patel argued in the House of Commons that while the right to protest peacefully is “a cornerstone of democracy”, there has recently been a a “significant change in protest tactics” which required police to be given powers to take “a more proactive approach”.
This isn’t the first time Greta has been celebrated for a cheeky Twitter bio change.
She has previously used the descriptor to troll Donald Trump, for example, after he accused her of having an “anger management problem".
The then US president said she needed to “chill” and watch a “good old fashioned movie with a friend”.
She responded by updating her bio to say she was "a teenager working on her anger management problem,” who was “currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend".
