Ann Widdecombe has said Greta Thunberg should be demonstrating elsewhere in the world - and not in the UK.

Speaking to GB News, the former Tory Minister said: “She needs to grow up, this nonsense started when she was a silly little school girl (and she) believed she should tell world leaders what to do. And unbelievably, the world leaders actually gave her encouragement.

“Now she thinks she is above being told by a policeman what to do. Now any citizen who is asked by a policeman to move, should move because the policeman is the representative of law and order. Greta Thunberg and co represent disorder.

“What's it all about? It's all about the stupid pursuit towards Net Zero. Why isn't she in China? Why isn't she demonstrating in China, which is belting 25% of the world's carbon emissions into the atmosphere? Why isn't she demonstrating in India? Why is she demonstrating here? We contribute 1% towards the world's carbon emissions? And of course, she knows that she will be very, very well treated.

“We should have told her to get back to the schoolbooks a long time ago. She's past that stage. But she hasn't matured. She's just acting like a silly child. I mean, most people when they're in court do not smirk.”
