UK political commentators are rather sceptical about yesterday’s “green conversion” of Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The Labour governments of Mr Blair and now Mr Brown have been talking loads about the need to tackle climate change but their delivery record has not been as impressive as their rhetoric. Can Gordon Brown become Gordon Green?
Read some of the UK papers’ comments:
- The Telegraph: Too little, too late to reverse climate change
- Guardian (Polly Toynbee): Has Brown finally become a bright-green revolutionary?
- Guardian (John Vidal): New and recycled pledges
- Times: A speech with plenty of hot air but few answers
