Extinction Rebellion UK spokesperson – Robin Boardman

This interview has garnered quite a bit of attention in the UK apparently. And so it should have. Boardman is young (21) so we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt here. And yes his accent indicates a privileged and probably Tory background. But that should not exclude him from XR unless your name is Max Tweedie.

Hopefully he learns, but my biggest problem with this interview is the number of cues that he missed. He could have had this interviewer squirming if he had been a little more experienced.

And yes he will have to front up to his frequent skiing in the Alps (the most common way of getting there from the UK being by plane) and should do this quickly. It would be a good example to others who do the same. Anything else is hypocrisy.

  1. The concentration on having the young speak for all of us smacks to me of ‘give me the boy of seven and I’ll give you the man”.

    Cynicism is needed. That requires cultivation. 21 year olds are rarely cynical. They’re still planning on being millionaires.
