Sunak axes UK climate change policy. Was Zac Goldmith right about him?

It seems Zac Goldsmith was right when he said Rishi Sunak was “simply uninterested” in saving the environment.

It’s been a bad week for Sunak – and he’s only halfway through it.

He has been hiding from Parliament – and in fact has been absent from Prime Minister’s Questions more than any other prime minister since the 1970s.

He was lambasted by the Commons Liaison Committee for failing to turn up to PMQs, and for votes on major issues like the Partygate Inquiry’s report or motions against Conservative MPs.

And he has failed to achieve any of the five targets he has set himself.

But he has been perfectly willing to provide his opinion on cricket.

He seems to be in the wrong job. Is he really only there to funnel public cash to his Tory friends?

MP Mercer’s wife commences hostilities – against Carol Vorderman

(Personally, This Writer has found Ms Vorderman’s political commentary to be spot-on, ever since I first heard her opinions on ITV’s This Morning. If you’re not reading her Twitter feed, you’re missing out.)

Shouldn’t Johnny Mercer and his missus be more worried about this?
