Bill Oddie the Statist

British families should be “contained” to stop them having too many children, Bill Oddie has said.

The Springwatch presenter claimed the answer to over-population was not curbing immigration, but restricting the size of families.

Bill Oddie has three children. I wonder if he thinks he would have been allowed the second, let alone the third, under such a policy?


  1. Ah, now there’s the rub.

    People who want us to stop drinking, already have.

    People who want us to stop smoking, already have.

    People who want us to exercise more or eat less, are built like racing snakes.

    And Bill, of course, is no different to the rest of the ‘Stop Doing X’rs’

  3. Ian Hills says:

    Surely misanthropic runts like Oddie should be castrated for the protection of the racial stock.

    A friend of mine once wrote: “If the anti-humanist neo-Malthusians — calling themselves whatever — are so concerned with “reducing population numbers” to “cut greenhouse gasses,” I have a suggestion about where they can start. Oddly, they never volunteer to go first.”

  5. Longrider says:

    So, er, how will this be policed? And will extraneous children be culled? We need to know.

    “I wonder if he thinks he would have been allowed the second”

    Don’t be silly. Such policies never apply to members of the elite.

      If Oddie is one of our “elite” then God help us.

        Given our political ‘elites’, I think God (other deities are available depending on your personal belief system) has decided that we are beyond help.

    Bloody unfunny twitcher. Even in The Goodies, he was the butt of the jokes. Why the nonentity “thinks” he’s entitled to express an opinion (unlike meee of course!) is beyond understanding. Twat.
