Boris Johnson using billionaire-class private jet shows he couldn’t care less about climate emergency

Andy McDonald, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on Boris Johnson again using a private jet to fly between campaign visits, said:

“It tells you everything you need to know about Boris Johnson, who couldn’t be bothered to turn up to the TV climate debate, that he is flying around the country billionaire-class.

“People like Johnson, who thinks he is born to rule, are happy to fly to work in a private jet because they couldn’t care less about the climate emergency.

“It’s time to vote for a government that will protect the planet and put money in your pocket by bringing down fares and bringing the railways into public ownership.”
