Labour’s plan: climate, not Brexit
The hysteria around Brexit has distracted from a more important change taking place in Britain with significant repercussions for the whole of Europe: a major political party, Labour, has developed the most ambitious political policy seen in Europe for decades. This is probably no coincidence. For many years, those in Britain arguing that governments should make climate disruption a top priority have found themselves ignored or marginalised. Now, there are hopeful signs that the opposition Labour Party is taking the matter seriously – and may become able to put that concern into practice.
