Leftie Lunacy: Attenborough spits in the face of those who pay him


The BBC’s nature programmes presenter turned climate-change activist, Sir David Attenborough, has told a Greenpeace house publication that the 17.4million who voted for Brexit ‘spat in the face of Europe’. They were too thick to know what they were opting for, he opined. A referendum should not have been allowed in the first place because stupid voters could not understand the issues involved. Oh dear me, Sir D.

The 91-year-old naturalist’s recent form in unpleasant elitism could perhaps be forgiven on account of his legendary career. But the BBC should worry that his greenie fanaticism, his Malthusian leanings plus his penchant for hanging out with the thugs of Greenpeace, are threatening his national treasure status.

For 60 years he’s had privileged access to oceans of licence-payers’ cash to educate the public (and indulge his own interests) yet he clearly thinks that more than half the people who pay him (and watch him) are ignorant oafs beneath contempt.

A kinder BBC would rein him and his disinhibited commentary in. But then again, why would they? Who in the BBC’s coterie of favoured presenters has views that are any different from Sir David’s?

Gary Lineker?
