UK CLIMATE ASSEMBLY IS SET UP BY THE GOVERNMENT

Letter to the press
I write to  express my deep concern over the recently established “Climate Assembly”.  [See this article – https://ift.tt/30QpdCa] and this https://ift.tt/2t0qSsl

If the past three years of struggle over Britain leaving the EU has taught us anything, it is that the bedrock of our society’s political life is parliamentary democracy as expressed through the ballot box – where all voters have their say. The ‘Climate Assembly” set-up is an open invitation for green activists to take control at the expense of the electorate in general.

This is particularly a concern as the sole remit of the assembly is stated to be: “how” to achieve so-called zero carbon. The small matter of whether such a policy is desirable, let alone necessary or affordable is to be ignored. This is a fundamental breach of trust with the wider electorate,  a completely undemocratic charade. It is appalling that British democracy is being subverted in this way – and, astonishingly, under the auspices of a Conservative government.

How can it be justified that an unelected assembly should be used to influence government policy?
