Issue #26 – 2 December 2021



We lead this issue with Paul Ryder’s appeal to Conservative MPs to reverse Britain’s slide into an “Elective Dictatorship”. Julian Greenbank’s celebration that Bristol now has a “Clean Air Zone” was also very popular, as was Hadrian Cook’s litany of river and coastal pollution. Mark Haller bemoans Britain’s lack of investment in education and our chronic homelessness. Post COP26, Bob Copeland explores what we need to do (and what not to do) to combat global warming, while Peter Burke echoes Greta Thunberg’s condemnation of the “Blah, blah, blah” from the world’s leaders.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our readers!
