Sir Keir Starmer calls Cop26 a 'missed opportunity'

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer described the Cop26 summit as a “missed opportunity” after the Prime Minister hailed the summit as a 'tipping point' for phasing out coal. Speaking in the House of Commons, the Labour leader said: “The Prime Minister has been the wrong man in the wrong place at the wrong time. And Glasgow has been a missed opportunity, a stumble forward when we needed to make great strides. “More climate delay, when we needed delivery. And 1.5C is now on life support. We still have the chance to keep 1.5C alive, but only with intensive care. “We have to speak honestly about the challenge we face to rebuild the coalition that we need, and to take on the big emitters. We can and we must change course.”
