Sir David Attenborough has spoken out about the horrors of war at Christmas, urging people to think about “refugees and migrants” and describing the UK bombing campaign as “dreadful” in an interview.
Asked about his forthcoming Christmas television special in an interview in the Radio Times, the BBC presenter, who turns 90 next year, said: “At Christmas we’re under the impression we have it all: we have turkey and brandy butter and Christmas pudding and the family and we have a great time, by and large.
“But think of those poor refugees and migrants. My God, the state of the world. Madmen dropping bombs in places, as if that solves anything. And poor people being bombed by us. It’s dreadful.”
