Farron challenges May to change Trump’s mind on climate change

Tim Farron has challenged Theresa May to sort out her mate Donald Trump on climate change. After the President announced his intention to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement, the Lib Dem leader told Theresa May:

You have gone to Washington to hold Donald Trump’s hand, now is the time to hold his feet to the fire.

If the special relationship between the Prime Minister and Mr Trump actually exists, it exists for moments like this. We need to make him see sense on climate change.

Prime Minister: if your special relationship with Donald Trump means anything, prove it.

    Absolutely right, well said, Tim.

  • “Downing Street said: “President Trump called the Prime Minister this evening to discuss his decision to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement.
    “The Prime Minister expressed her disappointment with the decision and stressed that the UK remained committed to the Paris Agreement, as she set out recently at the G7.
    “She said that the Paris Agreement provides the right global framework for protecting the prosperity and security of future generations, while keeping energy affordable and secure for our citizens and businesses.”

  • The ‘Special Relationship’ means we don’t criticise the US…

    .Germany, France, et al, state ““We deem the momentum generated in Paris in December 2015 irreversible and we firmly believe that the Paris Agreement cannot be renegotiated, since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economies,”

    Theresa May, on the other hand ‘accepts’ the decision as ‘disappointing’ ……

  • It appears to be the same sort of special relationship a serf had to their overlord. We be humble ever so humble Mr Trump. Grow a spine May.
