The Centre for Army Leadership has announced they’re to host Extinction Rebellion’s Chris Taylor at their Culture and Leadership Conference on 1st December. According to the announcement Taylor will talk on “Leadership in a time of social collapse”. Guido imagines Her Majesty’s forces will be only too happy to be lectured by a spokesman for a group that last year hijacked Remembrance Day to daub the Cenotaph in extremist protest garb reading “Climate change means war”.
Surely the army should be busy dealing with loons like Extinction Rebellion and Insulate Britain – not taking lectures from them…
UPDATE: In just under two hours his invite has been rescinded
While the CAL encourages diverse thinking and alternative views, we recognise the challenge of inviting a member of XR to speak at our conference. At the direction of the Army’s Director Leadership, Chris Taylor will no longer attend.— Centre for Army Leadership (@Army_Leadership) November 9, 2021
