One of the many tragedies associated with this Brexit chaos is the huge distraction it is from other key priorities such as the climate catastrophe.

The other half is that the UK is way off track to meet our long-term climate targets, and our consumption emissions are down just 4%. Will she support growing calls for a green new deal—a green transformation of our economy, creating hundreds of thousands of good-quality jobs in constituencies up and down this country?
