For coherence let alone any logical development of a theme, 0 out of 10. Scattergun journalism.
As noted in comment below, wholesale attack on environment campaigners, and not to be missed from Echo editors the inevitable insults directed at the leader of the Labour Party.
And on the issues raised, however much we all do our pottings in the potting shed Ms Eckersall and so on this is not going to take on world global pollution and destruction of world climate.
Each making his own personal efforts is no grounds to attack all who get out in public to scream to the world, we need major global measures, led by world leaders.
But not Ms Eckersall using your family efforts as justification to rubbish those who have taken to the streets, to get our government to take major actions, as in declaring Climate Emergency.
All you’re saying is “look at me look at me, look at what I’m doing” and using your lifestyle to condemn everyone and anyone else.
Shear egotistical pontification, shot through with sarcasm and hypocrisy. Is this really the best you can do Ms Eckersall?
Everyone else is “self-indulgent” from the “leisured hoards” (insult after insult) but not Ms Eckersall banging out her weekend 1,000 words to suit her views and feelings. Never mind the shear hard work taking on and grasping the hard science, all the reasons why so many are taking to the streets.
You could not more insult tens of thousands of decent hard working people in our towns Ms Eckersall with your “terminal self-righteous” insults – notably referring to environment as a “game” which clearly for you it is. You do your 1,000 words pontification and condemn anyone and everyone else making serious efforts to join in mass movements.
If you could raise your game and read the science you might then grasp that Extinction Rebellion is seeking to get the message across the planet is in meltdown. We are now, on the reading of world science, in the final decades. This is indisputable.
We all need to work together, not have a columnist slanging off everyone who is not doing exactly what Ms Eckersall is doing on her leisurely weekends. Yes to all making personal efforts but this no ground for slanging off those who go far further making huge efforts to move national and world opinion.
But from you Ms Eckersall sweeping tabloid script shot through with sarcasm the worst you find in any right wing tabloid.
