Boris’s G7 Jet Hypocrisy

Boris Johnson took to the skies last night on a gas guzzling private jet to fly to the G7 summit in Cornwall and lecture world leaders about the importance of tackling climate change. According to the government’s own climate figures the greenhouse gas emissions generated by this flight are five times greater than the equivalent train journey…

Yesterday evening Johnson tweeted a picture himself waving as he exited his private airplane with the caption:

I’ve arrived in Cornwall for this year’s G7 where I’ll be asking my fellow leaders to rise to the challenge of beating the pandemic and building back better, fairer and greener.”

Guido wonders why Boris can’t see the plane irony of the situation… 

Two months ago Guido revealed that Keir Starmer flew to Edinburgh despite backing a Green New Deal. When it comes to actually emitting carbon it’s one rule for political leaders and another rule for everybody else…

Miliband’s Slogan-Stealing Slip Up

Labour today launched their new green campaign, calling on the government to “Build it in Britain”, and support the creation of 400,000 jobs through a “green recovery from the Covid crisis.” Thankfully the policy announcement was in a safe pair of hands as Shadow BEIS Secretary Ed Miliband was sent out to promote it. Embarrassingly, however, rather than pushing the party’s new “Build it in Britain” slogan, he accidentally parroted Boris’sBuild Back Better” tagline. Once again, socialist Miliband fails to respect private property…

While Ed is more than used to these cock-ups, he’ll be less pleased with the news that hard left Long-Bailey-aligned group, “Labour for a Green New Deal” has said the plan “retreats on key promises”; turning their nose up at the meagre £30 billion proposal and calling for more than double that to create an additional 250,000 jobs. Have the Corbynites turned on Red Ed?
