Co-conspirators will no doubt be blithely unaware of the existence of Scottish Green co-leader Lorna Slater, although she finally managed to capture Guido’s attention yesterday when slamming the PM for flying from the G20 to COP. Lorna argues that he could have taken the train and set an example, despite the fact the G20 was in Italy, and COP is in Glasgow. When people pointed out this unfortunate reality of inconvenient geography mixed with a lack of teleportation, Lorna doubled down:
It is possible to get from Rome to Glasgow by train, world leaders could have decided to do this. They didn't. This is exactly what I mean. We need our leadership to *change* how they do things. pic.twitter.com/RQIxf2QS3B— Lorna Slater (@lornaslater) October 31, 2021
Clearly for the co-leader of the Scottish Greens, a 28 hour journey involving four trains, three metro systems and five overground connections is a good use of time…
The problem for Lorna is that in 2019 she herself tweeted she was in Brussels airport on her way to Sweden to promote environmental tidal energy.
In Brussels airport on my way to Sweden as part of my job in #tidalenergy #tidalpower Is this the last time I'll get to use my passport in the EU queue? Curses to #Brexit. I love being part of the EU. I will do everything I can think of to work for a Scotland in Europe. pic.twitter.com/02Fv2Ib37p— Lorna Slater (@lornaslater) March 27, 2019
According to Lorna’s logic, Guido is outraged she didn’t set an example by taking the 36-hour train from Glasgow Central via Euston, London St Pancras, Amsterdam and Berlin to Stockholm Central.
How will anyone be able to trust the Scottish Greens again?
