Climate change fanatics ‘don’t care about impact on families’, says Sunak

Rishi Sunak said people with “more ideological zeal” over climate change “simply don’t care about the impact on families”, as he continued to defend his green policy changes. The Prime Minister also said he was “undeterred” by the resistance he might face to his plans when asked about a possible Commons vote on the policies. Read our live blog for the latest reactions.

Earlier, Kemi Badenoch suggested that former net zero tsar Lord Goldsmith was too rich to understand the need to relax climate commitments. Lord Goldsmith, a Conservative Green who resigned from his ministerial post in June, warned Sunak that he would be remembered as the UK “turned its back on the world and future generations”. Ross Clark believes climate change committee extremism is hiding in the open after Sunak’s speech.
