It would be all too easy to dismiss the 16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg as a ghastly little know-nothing troll, but in a sense, that would be unfair.
Unhappily for her, she inherited none of the fabulous good looks of her ambitious mother, Malena Ernman (now an opera singer, but who once represented Sweden at the Eurovision Song contest) and she apparently suffers from Asperger’s syndrome. Not a promising start.
And bear in mind that the horrid little girl has yet to make a public utterance that is in any sense original, and so the blame for her banal ill-informed twaddle has to lie with those who filled her eager little brain with all this half-baked nonsense in the first place.
You know who you are.
