Who needs climate change? Tories have gone into meltdown over Sunak’s ‘Net Zero’ changes

The Conservatives have gone into freefall over the ‘Net Zero’ announcements – we can’t call them changes – that Rishi Sunak announced yesterday (September 20, 2023).

Sure, there are a lot of messages on the social media from Tory MPs and Cabinet members, saying what a good job he made of it…

… but get ’em on the telly and they turn into jelly. Here’s Kemi Badenoch, unable to take in the fact that the poorest families don’t have ministerial cars and chauffeurs like she does:

Here’s George Eustace, giving up and openly admitting Sunak was playing fast-and-loose with the facts when he said he was axing policies:

And here’s Kwasi Kwarteng, basically losing it for no good reason. He says he doesn’t want to relive his time as Chancellor but that’s a pretty good summary of it, I would have thought:

For a change of pace, let’s have Peter Stefanovic’s critique of the prime minister himself, after Rishi Sunak made a fool of himself in a Tory promo video:

As an aside: the Tories have all spent the day banging on that they won’t dictate what the public can or can’t buy. This is nonsense.

Does anybody remember the ‘nudge unit’, that David Cameron used to … encourage … the British people into actions they would not otherwise have taken? Is Rishi not still using that?

Also: look at your energy bill. You don’t get to choose how the energy you buy is generated, and much of it comes from the burning of fossil fuels – coal and gas – or nuclear fission. All are hugely polluting and we don’t have any say at all about it.

So the government really does dictate what we can buy.

Still – in the middle of this pack of lies, who’d notice another one?
