Anti-green measures in king’s speech are desperate political play by Sunak

If the prime minister is trying to win votes, green Tories are doubtful. Sam Hall, the director of the Conservative Environment Network, told the Guardian: “Oil and gas is one of the least popular parts of the government’s energy policy. A major political focus on new exploration could undermine voters’ perception of the Conservatives’ commitment to climate action before the general election. It could also overshadow efforts to promote the party’s positive record on renewables, which is not widely known and significantly more popular.”
