Sir David Attenborough Attacks Cameron and Gove Over ‘Catastrophic’ Brexit Referendum Decision

Sir David also attacked Michael Gove’s infamous claim during the EU Referendum that the British people have had enough of experts.

“That’s why politicians getting up an saying, ‘We’ve had enough of experts’ is so catastrophic,” he said.

However, he added: “I can see the arguments [for and against Brexit].

“I mean, I’ve said for years that I don’t think any human society is prepared to make decisions which they may not like if they’re made by people who don’t speak the same language.”

Attenborough, a former senior executive at the BBC as well as a world-renowned wildlife programme presenter, this year had the British scientific survey ship named after him.

The RRS Sir David Attenborough will however have a submarine named Boaty McBoatface, in recognition of the public’s original online vote for the ship’s name.

Sir David is set to present Planet Earth II, the follow-up to his landmark 2006 natural history series, beginning Sunday 6th November at 8pm on BBC1.
