Climate Change (5 Mar 2008)

Rob Marris: ...about 80 per cent. is gesture politics. There is nary a Member in either House who will be an active politician in 2050. I think that the youngest is the hon. Member for East Dunbartonshire (Jo Swinson), who is 28. She might be an active politician then, but she is about the only one.

They both understood that the role of the full-time president broadly reflects the functions that the...
