One would think that anyone with a modicum of shame would choose not to go on a TV show where you're so unwanted that there are whole trending hashtags to keep you away.
Not so for Julia Hartley-Brewer, who rocked up to her panellist gig on Question Time yesterday seemingly determined to prove the haters, errr... right.
In response to Extinction Rebellion spokesperson Rupert Read, Hartley-Brewer went on a rant about how climate activists want to "take us back to a pre-industrial age" with "state-rationed meat" and "no central heating".

Despite the hilarious hyperbole, her absurd comments did not go down well
“Quasi religious death cult” says Julia Hartley Brewer of @ExtinctionR on @bbcquestiontime Good grief. Can’t bear it. Going to bed.
