Ralf Little, 41, has responded to a follower who mocked his Twitter post, which commended the Conservative government for “speeding up” to their UK climate change target. The Death In Paradise star sarcastically hit back at the troll as he said their response “reeked of intelligent thought”.

Nice to be patronised

Ralf shared a news article about the Government’s target to rapidly tackle climate change in view of his 264,200 followers.

Alongside the piece, he typed: “I’m no fan of this govt., but in the interests of fairness, I have to say this is welcome news and a real step forward. 

“We have to hope now it’s not just spin and rhetoric. Time will tell. But in the meantime…” he added a series of clapping hands and fingers crossed emojis.

Underneath one follower typed: “You can’t be this dumb.”

Ralf retorted: “What a good point you made. Considered. Reeks of intelligent thought.”

Another responded: “Sounds great, now let’s see it (or parts) written into Law, think of the opportunities Tories.”

The actor replied: “It’s hard to imagine it happening. But until it doesn’t, let’s just watch closely.”

While a third commented: “I hope so too. But I’ll believe it when I see it.”

Ralf replied: “Indeed.”

However, after receiving a plethora of sceptical comments, he posted a second tweet blasting critics.

“Yes, thanks for all the replies suggesting I’m being naive.

“I think I made it pretty clear I’m taking it with a massive pinch of salt, I don’t need 50 comments telling me I should.

“Nice to be patronised though,” he added.

The Conservatives are aiming to cut carbon emissions by 78 per cent by 2035, they announced this week.

Ralf has often taken to social media to question the current Conservative government over their policies.

Back in 2019, he was suspended by Twitter after changing his name to mock the Conservative Party over the leaders’ debate.

The Royle Family actor edited his profile shortly after it aired on ITV – mimicking the party’s own rebranding to FactCheckUK.

CCHQ caused division after masquerading as a fact checking page during the hour-long debate, which saw Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn go head to head.

In response, a number of famous faces changed their profiles to mock the Tories, including Ralf.

He changed his name to Conservative Press Orifice and the description to “Not a fact-checker. Or the Conservative Press Office”.

But his actions did not go unpunished as LBC presenter James O’Brien shared a message from Ralf at the time, who claimed he had been locked out of the social media platform.

The radio host said: “A message from @RalfLittle: Just been logged out of my Twitter account without explanation.

“Assume I’ve been suspended. Which is fine. But only if the @CCHQPress account is suspended for the same thing. Please continue to press the issue with Twitter in my absence.”
