Rishi rushes out: why was he really in such a hurry?
It can’t have been to write his speech. Can it?
Rishi Sunak caused a stir – and some hilarity – when he was rushed out of the launch of the Forests Partnership at COP 27:
About 2 mins before he left an aide came onto stage and was whispering in his ear for more than a minute…there was a discussion going on about, it seems, whether to leave at that moment. But Sunak stayed but another aide made decision to go back to him and urge him to leave pic.twitter.com/F2xSJc0sEw
No official statement has been issued by Downing Street to explain the prime minister’s dramatic exit however it is believed he left early to prepare for a keynote climate change speech he would make later in the afternoon.
Does that ring true, considering what the content of his speech actually was?
His speech caused scepticism from the summit with social justice campaign group Global Justice calling his works “tepid” and [saying it] “failed to address the scale of the climate emergency.”
Friends of the Earth campaigner Rachel Kennerley, said it failed to offer “adequate finance to support vulnerable nations to tackle climate change and deal with its impacts.”
So it seems strange that this speech is being touted as the reason Sunak was practically dragged out of the hall previously.
Should we expect a new government-rocking revelation in short order?
