Green-wash, Brexit and reshuffles: Our KCC member on Paul on Politics

January 14, 2018

Our Kent County Councillor, Martin Whybrow, was on this Friday’s Paul on Politics show on KMTV. In an entertaining and wide-ranging discussion, alongside fellow KCC councillor, Labour’s Karen Constantine, he discussed Tory green-wash, in light of Theresa May’s speech on Thursday (too vague, too little on how the aspirations would be achieved and still a long way to go from a government that pursues schemes such as the Lower Thames Crossing and a new runway at Heathrow, blatantly ignores issues such as air quality, and still pursues fossil fuels through fracking).

Also on the agenda was a second Brexit referendum and what a hard Brexit could mean for Kent (including why the lorry park proposal was “a dumb idea that I hope is now dead in the water”) plus central government and KCC reshuffles, including why the KCC cabinet member for transport is like the England football manager’s job – it never ends well.
