It was very encouraging to listen to Ben Weisz on the BBC Sussex Radio this morning. He described how tragic the Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak event in Eastbourne was for the many people who were campaigning for the Climate requirements for our nation. Along with the Sussex BBC information there was also this piece on the Kent Online and I spotted a piece on twitter from one of my colleagues. Several of the people who are Climate campaigners arrived inside the event pretending to be Conservative members and they were removed when they stood up and called for Climate to be dealt with. The tragic element of that was that we need our Government and indeed future Governments to treat the Climate very seriously and tragically Truss and Sunak appeared to reject the Climate issue. One of the positive issues they accepted was the call for the DGH Hospital in Eastbourne that needs to be re-built as I wrote about it here and Truss is claiming she will deal with it if she is elected. However it was very disturbing that although Sunak visited Wealden yesterday during the day so he was close to where I was working in the office, the local MP Nusrat Ghani has endorsed Liz Truss. It will be very interesting to see who gets elected and perhaps even more significant what will Truss or Sunak do about Hospitals and the Climate because both of these are vital for our Nation. When I wrote my blog on Monday it was published in the Argus newspaper and it can be seen here. I made the suggestion that if people called for our local requirements that these two candidates might adopt them in the same way that they have adopted the Leeds call for better railway provision. Indeed I mentioned that perhaps Nusrat Ghani would call for that in her response to these two candidates. I wonder if she has done so? One of the comments that Rishi Sunak stated yesterday and which was released on twitter from Adam Bienkov was
“I will be incredibly robust in standing up against that lefty woke culture that is trying to cancel our history, our values and indeed our women,”
Which is very disturbing in the same way that they both rejected the Climate requirements.
