Arron Banks’ response to Greta Thunberg’s sea trip marked a new low – 12 condemnations

In a long-running series we like to call “WTF has Arron Banks said this time?”, we note that the billionaire Leave backer and man who contradicts himself on a regular basis has decided it’s okay to joke about a child being hurt/killed. This is how that on-brand scenario played out:

Green MP, Caroline Lucas tweeted her good wishes to climate activist Greta Thunberg as she embarked on a two-week journey by sail.

This was Arron Banks’ mature, proportionate, and not even remotely threatened, response.

His comment was immediately and widely condemned.

Actor, Amanda Abbington had a message for Banks, and the surprisingly high number of people criticising the Swedish teenager for her stance and her efforts.

Finally, in a “Dracula finds you a bit too bitey” moment, even the very far right of centre commentator, Julia Hartley-Brewer considered him to have gone too far.

And that’s got to be somewhere near rock bottom.
