As an actress, I view and hold Dame Emma Thompson in high regard. She takes on the ‘persona’ of her character in such a manner as to allow ‘believability’ in both the film plot, and the manner of her acting, to be totally credible. From the Georgian ‘Sense and Sensibility’, through ‘Love Actually’ to ‘The Children Act’; her mastery of her trade has been self-evident. Unfortunately, as with so many other ‘activists’ in her self-appointed leadership role of the Climate Change / Climate Crisis / Global Warming / ‘We’ll all be murdered in our beds’ routines, she falls down on the basic themes behind the ‘Alarms and Warnings’ before all is subject to this illusory 1.50 C rise in world temperatures. They; that is the Greenie/Climate Warming/Mouthy crowd all are pushing for us all to eat no more meat (cows farting methane!), and for the condemnation of the wider public’s adoration of flying: which, as we all are supposed to accept, produces tonnes of Carbon Dioxide for every mile flown. Seems Dame Emma, after condemning everyone who flies, ‘except on grave emergency’, plonked herself down on seat 2F of the First Class cabin of a BA Airbus 380, and partook of beef carpaccio whilst flying to New York at a cost of £18,000.00. A simple case of ‘do as I say; not as I do’!
Anyone with more than two active brain cells has, by now, made the link between our Emma, great actress though she may be; and pure, undiluted hypocrisy. Where does this bunch of ‘luvvies’, of which our Emma is a vocal part; get their idea from that we, the great unwashed; take any notice whatsoever of anything produced outside their accepted expertise; which, I might remind everyone, is pretending to be someone else?
