Jeremy Clarkson has said climate change activist Greta Thunberg deserves a 'smacked bottom', in his latest column for the Sunday Times.
The Diddly Squat Farmer from Oxfordshire criticised the young campaigner, describing her as an 'annoying little bucket of ego' for her behaviour at COP26. He also criticised the BBC journalists who, according to him, 'fawned like they were soap stars being introduced to the Queen'.
Writing in his newspaper column Clarkson said “They didn’t call the annoying little bucket of ego, 'Your majesty', but you could see they were thinking it.” “I simply don’t get the Thunberg phenomenon. She has no knowledge of how the world works, no manners and no letters after her name because instead of going to school, she’s been busy sailing round the world so she can be mardy and abusive to grown-ups. What she needs is a smacked bottom.” adding said: “Rod Liddle calls her the “Swedish doom goblin” which is, of course, brilliant, but she’s worse than that. She’s a pest.”
Jeremy Clarkson speaks for millions of normal people in Britain who are fed up with being lectured to saying: “So here’s a tip, Greta: lecturing me on what needs to be done is pointless. It’d be like standing in my bedroom every morning ordering me to wear clothes. I know already.”
The TV presenter suggested for her to go to the countries where people are less aware of these issues, “China for example”, according to him. He also suggested that she could be joined by “those Extinction Rebellion halfwits”.
“I’d also like to see them daubing the words 'racist' and 'murderer on statues of Chairman Mao, but of course, this would never happen because they know they would not be treated with respect and reverence by China’s news crews. And neither would they be invited with Greta and the Lib Dem vicars round to President Xi’s for some nuclear free vegan peace food."
