Save the world – vote Climate!


WHAT do you think of when someone mentions the Green Party? After rolling my eyes, I get the whiff of boiled lentils, the aura of smug, a four-year-old electric car, and someone who has not washed their hair since they bought the car. 

If you have similar thoughts there is an alternative and sweeter-smelling new weather amelioration party to tempt you on July 4. Step forward the Climate Party. Their website describes their mission: ‘The Climate Party is a new political movement with the aim of leading the UK to economic revival and increased prosperity for British people through a commitment to net zero 2030, in line with the science, while restoring Britain’s nature and protecting our waterways from pollution.’

Sadly they are fielding only 13 candidates but the good news is that they all look clean, would not scare the horses and have mostly normal names. 

Their founder, and Prime Minister in waiting, is the dashing and determined looking ex-Army officer and City lawyer, Ed Gemmell. He pledges to focus on Wycombe whilst at the same time making Britain the leader of the nebulous ‘Clean Industrial Revolution’. In his publicity photographs Ed likes to point purposefully into the distance.

Clean-cut Chris Nevile is another grandee. He ‘found the Climate Party had a philosophy that chimed with his own – to no longer tolerate the reckless disregard for the world we all inhabit and be a clarion call for urgent change’. Despite being a farmer he is pleading with landowners in Lincolnshire to turn their land into giant solar farms. Intermittent power or food? The voters in Banbury will have to choose if Chris and his chums are successful.

Another stalwart is Penelope Tollitt. Penelope is standing in Northampton South. She is a Chartered Environmentalist, whatever that is. She ‘defected from Labour to the Climate Party because of the failure of Labour to lead on the need for a 2030 science-led target, and not seeing the commercial opportunity that zero carbon enterprises represent’. The excellent Paul Homewood continually points out to TCW readers the so-called ‘commercial opportunities’ of Net Zero, and not one has been beneficial to taxpayers and consumers.

A fourth Climate Party candidate is worthy-looking Chris Harwood. Chris claims to have studied climate change ideas for years. Alarmingly, he was finally convinced that he needed to take action after watching a David Attenborough documentary. Chris is a retired teacher. His goal is to ‘bring down the cost of energy’ and believes ‘renewable energy will tumble prices’. Chris was clearly not a maths or economics teacher. He plans to improve the weather for the people of Salisbury.

For anyone who likes fairy stories and the promise of Eco-Communism with Milton and King wallpaper, an Audi q4 e-tron and a splash of Chanel, the Climate Party is for you.
