An appalling outcome from Parliament yesterday

At the beginning of this week this blog was also published in the Brighton Argus newspaper as my column. The document described some of the things that I claimed needed to happen in Parliament in the last week and at the same time it included a few of the elements that were planned in the document. One of those was the second reading of the Climate and Ecology Bill which was first read in September 2020 by Caroline Lucas who had written the Bill on behalf of our nation and the rest of the world. As you can see in this Upcoming Business list, the second reading was due for Friday the 10th September. It was disturbing that it had taken a whole year for that to occur. However what is even more disturbing is the fact that it has now been extended to the 22nd October, particularly as this is a week before COP26 and the second reading of the Bill is still a long way till the Bill will get voted for by our Parliament. Parliament deserves to be heavily criticised for this result.
