THE DISGRACED TORY MINISTER FOR HYPOCRICY JETS AROUND THE WORLD BEFORE PREACHING TO THE REST OF US. A ONE RULE FOR THEM TORY CAUGHT OUT.
Alok Sharma, the government minister responsible for vital UN climate talks, is facing calls to self-isolate when he returns from Brazil, after he was hit with a double barrage of criticism for not quarantining when returning from “red-list” countries and for the environmental impact of his trips around the world.
The president of Cop26, which is being hosted in Glasgow in October and November, has visited 30 countries since February, including Brazil, where he has been this week, Indonesia and Kenya, it was reported.
Despite travelling to six countries on the government’s travel “red list” he was not required to isolate, according to the Daily Mail. The revelations came as the government added countries to its red list scuppering many people’s summer holiday plans.
The Mail also reported that Sharma had an indoor meeting – without masks – with Prince Charles days after returning from Bangladesh (a red list country) before going on a visit to a primary school.
Now Sharma is telling the world what we should all do:
“The world is becoming “dangerously close” to running out of time to avert catastrophic climate change.”
Failing to limit warming to 1.5C would be “catastrophic”, claims Mr Sharma, who will lead the upcoming climate talks beginning on 31 October in Glasgow.
