Tories have lost the plot even discussing climate change ‘reparations’ to foreign countries at COP27

Bonkers bill
WE doubt there’s a policy crazier or more likely to lose an election than making skint voters pay billions in climate change ­“reparations” to foreign countries.
We expect such lunacy from the Left, Ed Miliband in particular.

But the Tories have lost the plot even by discussing it at COP27.
The theory goes that Britain triggered the global industrial revolution 200 years ago and should bail out nations worst hit by the warming effect since.
Let’s leave aside that Pakistan, now badly flooded, can afford nukes.
Or that Britain has now slashed its CO2 emissions faster than other major economies. If every country must now settle up over its past, where do we start?

Shouldn’t we get a trillion-pound thank-you from every other country for lifting billions out of pre-industrial peasantry? Or a bung every time someone is saved by vaccination, transported by train, entertained by TV or informed by the web — all invented by Brits?
Answer: No. It would be as absurd as climate reparations.
Boris Johnson, at least, gets that. But it’s not just that we can’t afford it. It’s because billing nations for deeds centuries ago is ludicrous.
We have a far stronger case for claiming £407billion damages from China over Covid. That was only in 2019.

Brake on cult
THE M25 disruption by doomsday cult ­idiots yesterday was bad enough. But ­without The Sun tipping off police, the motorway might have been paralysed.
Instead cops acted far more swiftly to thwart protesters and arrest dozens, including alleged ringleaders. Police seem finally to be waking up to the threat from Just Stop Oil. So must our courts.

The video of protester Louise Harris speaks volumes: A pitiable young woman driven to tears and criminality not by facts but by the cherry-picked propaganda she was brainwashed with.
UK emissions are but one per cent of the global total and falling. Yet Harris believes ANY new North Sea drilling will destroy her life and the planet. Her group attacks a “criminal Government” and its “genocidal death project”.
Not even jail stretches, deserved as they are, will change such damaged minds.
This cult’s figureheads must be prevented from harming anyone else.
Rishful thinking
WE’D love to share Rishi Sunak’s confidence that he and President Macron will fix the illegal migrants crisis.

Maybe their new friendship will bear fruit. We won’t be holding our breath.
Macron could solve it if he wanted to. Trouble is, he doesn’t.
