Memo to Ed Miliband
Ed, today you have been all over the airwaves exhorting us all to cut our carbon footprints and that business must also cut its carbon emissions or face the consequences.
Yet your government has thrown its weight (rightly, in my view) behind a third runway at Heathrow Airport. This will, as I am sure you are aware, increase carbon emissions rather than help cut them
Is this what you mean by 'joined up government'? Should we really take all your warnings of a coming armageddon seriously if your government speaks with forked tongues in this manner?
