Revealed at last? Labour’s low carbon policy thinking

There’s one less blank sheet of paper at Labour HQ as the party gets ready to reveal how its policy review is progressing.

Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary Meg Hillier is to give a keynote address to green executives and industry leaders which will “for the first time offer a detailed insight into the opposition’s low carbon policy thinking.”

Looking forward to finally hearing what Labour think, 9 months and 7 days after first appointed as Chris Huhne’s shadow!

  • I’m not really expecting to be wowed (although the environment is one subject that is always easier to preach on in opposition), but can we give up with moaning about Labours delay in getting to a policy decision.

    They got spanked (rightly) by the electorate, they got rid of (rightly and far too late) a stubbornly out of touch leader, and they were informed by the coalition that there would be at least 5 years before they would be able to enact any policies…

    In light of that it would appear sensible to take some time to consider a new set of policies…..

    How often do we hear that rushed legislation is poor legislation. The same is true of policy. I do not expect to agree with much of what they say, but I would like them to take some time to put up a set of policies that the electorate can critique prior to the next election……

  • Blank sheets of paper presumably being inferior to signed pledges and manifestoes worth less than the paper they were scrawled upon?
