Extinction Rebellion founder outed as diesel-using, packaged-fruit-buying hypocrite
04/27/2023 // News Editors // Views

A co-founder of Extinction Rebellion -- the environmental group that's widely loathed for stunts like smashing windows, splashing paint on works of art and glueing themselves to runways and roads -- has been accused of hypocrisy after she was photographed driving a diesel car and buying a variety of packaged, non-local foods.

This week, however, Bradbrook was spotted by an eagle-eyed observer at a Waitrose supermarket loading up on a variety of decidedly non-local, organic foods. 

"Out-of-season fruit and vegetables generate the highest emissions as they often need to be refrigerated while being transported," reported The Sun, which used the environmental website Foodmiles.com to calculate how far Bradbrook's goodies traveled aboard carbon-spewing conveyances:

“The contents of this woman’s shopping trolley speaks volumes about the hypocrisy of people who think nothing of causing chaos," said Tory MP Chris Loder. “It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so predictable. Extinction Rebellion’s leaders clearly live by the mantra, ‘Do as I say, not as I do’.”

Bradbrook then left the Stroud, Gloucestershire store in a 2013-model diesel-burning car. Unlike many of the victims of her organization, she wasn't impeded by a "climate awareness" roadblock. We can only hope that when she got home, she splashed paint across her car to teach herself a lesson.

One onlooker summarized the spectacle this way: “Buying fruit flown halfway round the world in non-recyclable packaging then driving home in a ­diesel motor — what a towering hypocrite."

Bradbrook has previously come under fire for her car. In a flimsy defense, she bemoaned the lack of public transportation and the high prices of electric vehicles, and said she needed to take her kids to athletic activities.

Bradbrook's humiliation comes as Just Stop Oil, an Extinction Rebellion fellow-traveller, says it won't rule out disrupting the May 8 coronation of King Charles.
