Boris Johnson is slammed by a Vine caller over the climate costs that poorer Brits endure, describing the situation as “cloud cuckooland.”
As Boris Johnson faces renewed pressure to push forward his green agenda, a Jeremy Vine caller attacked No. 10 MPs, calling them “idiots living in cloud cuckooland.”
Boris Johnson and his government’s climate policies have been attacked by a caller on the Jeremy Vine on Five show, who referred to them as “idiots who live in cloud cuckooland.” The Prime Minister is under increased pressure to push through with his green agenda as a result of findings in a newly released UN study on the impact of the climate emergency on the planet, according to caller Louise.
“Unfortunately, we’ve now involved carers for my parents, who are nearly 100 years old and require at least three carers every day,” the caller from Essex added.
“They can’t afford new automobiles, but they’ve all been advised that if they want to keep their jobs, they need to go out and get one.”
“How can they afford new cars on their meager salaries, and how can other working-class people?”
“My children are among them, and they need their cars,” she continued.
“We have a bunch of idiots living at Number 10, who live in cloud cuckoo-land and don’t even pay for their own cars while traveling around the world, leaving so-called footprints.
“I can’t believe what the government expects of average working-class people, and it’s now hurting middle-class people.”
Climate change, according to a UN report released this morning, is already here and causing havoc in some areas.
The analysis comes fewer than three months before the UK hosts the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow in November, where governments must outline plans for dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions over the next decade in order to avoid irreversible climate change.
The climate report, according to the Prime Minister, is “sobering.” “Today’s study is depressing reading, and it is apparent that the next decade will be critical in protecting our planet’s future,” he said.
“We know what needs to be done to minimize global warming: ban coal and move to clean energy sources, protect the environment, and offer climate funding to frontline countries.”
The COP26 president, AlokSharma, has stated that the world is “dangerously close” to running out of time to avert a climate change disaster.
