Caroline Lucas: PM’s COP27 U-turn an ‘embarrassment’

Green Party MP Caroline Lucas says she welcomes Rishi Sunak’s decision to attend COP27 in Egypt, but adds: “What an embarrassment that he’s had to be shamed into doing it.” The prime minister had initially said he would not go to the climate change conference, which begins on Sunday 6th November in Sharm El Sheikh, before reversing his decision on Wednesday morning.
