We had such high hopes for Boris: Someone who could finally rescue the UK from the EU and make Great Britain great again. Unfortunately, having rescued the Brits from the Eurocrats just a few days later Boris Johnson has thrown the Brits on to the economic scrap heap of the Green Utopia.

The Prime Minister will today, Tuesday 4 February, launch the next UN climate conference COP26, joined by Sir David Attenborough and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at an event in central London.

Once you have hitched your wagon to David Attenborough, it is all over.

At the event, he will set out the UK’s position as a world leader in the response to climate change, having made a legal commitment to achieve net zero emissions, and call all nations to strive towards this goal.

Sorry, Boris, Ardern and Shaw have already assumed the mantle of “world leader in response to climate change”. You will have to be content with “an also ran leader.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:

Hosting COP26 is an important opportunity for the UK and nations across the globe to step up in the fight against climate change. As we set out our plans to hit our ambitious 2050 net zero target across this year, so we shall urge others to join us in pledging net zero emissions.

There can be no greater responsibility than protecting our planet, and no mission that a Global Britain is prouder to serve. 2020 must be the year we turn the tide on global warming– it will be the year when we choose a cleaner, greener future for all.

The Prime Minister will use the speech to call for international efforts to reach net zero as early as possible through investment in cleaner, greener technology, preservation of our natural habitat and measures to improve resilience to climate change impact.

At the event, which will also be attended by Sir David Attenborough, the Prime Minister will reinforce his commitment to tackling climate change and biodiversity loss simultaneously, recognising the important role of the restoration of nature in his vision.

Demonstrating the UK’s urgent action to reduce emissions, the Government plans to bring forward an end to the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans to 2035, or earlier if a faster transition is feasible, subject to consultation, as well as including hybrids for the first time. […]

Oh dear, all the smug hybrid owners will have to join the ranks of the damned ICE owners.

I wonder how the UK breeding programme for the flying pigs is getting on? The UK is going to need quite a few to haul the planes of the future.

First, it was the man’s man Harry getting emasculated by Megan and now it is Boris being told what to do by his live-in girlfriend:

Boris Johnson’s partner Carrie Symonds said politicians had a “gigantic responsibility to make the right decisions” over the climate crisis, in her first solo public appearance since moving into Downing Street.
