Those of us who live in the South East area are dominated by the Conservative MPs currently although of course when the next General Election takes place this could be shifted somewhat. However for the moment we have a significant number of local MPs who would have observed the Greenpeace people who stood up in the Conference and their call was based on a visual image of Who Voted for This? and as indicates in this piece on the tweet
“If the CEO of Shell can see it’s ridiculous not to tax the extraordinary profits of oil and gas companies why can’t the Prime Minister?”
So what will the local Conservatives tell us in the light of these aspects, given the very negative comment towards Greenpeace from the Prime Minister? I would not expect the Ministers to respond but here in Sussex we do have MPs such as Caroline Ansell, Peter Bottomley, Maria Caulfield, Nick Gibb, Sally-Ann Hart, Tim Loughton, Huw Merriman and Henry Smith. Would any of them be willing to speak up positively about the Greenpeace and Shell comment? After all this is something that may emerge in the next General Election!
