In the Edinburgh News yesterday:
Climate change: Scottish government’s failure to oppose Cambo field shows SNP’s love affair with oil continues – Ian Murray MP. As a new parent, the climate emergency keeps me up at night like never before.https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/news/opinion/columnists/climate-change-scottish-governments-failure-to-oppose-cambo-field-shows-snps-love-affair-with-oil-continues-ian-murray-mp-3384525
Leaving aside the fact that Zola (after Emile?) was born more than a year ago, new parent Murray, playing the creepy exploitative parent in the tradition of Gummer and Cole-Hamilton, is this the Labour position on oil and gas extraction?
Has he checked with his Tory allies in the New British Nationalist Pact? The Tories have already accused the SNP of selling out Scotland on the new Cambo field. Anas is keeping quiet but Starmer is openly agin it – what Labour divided, confused, no?
Footnote on Zola (Emile):
In 1870-1871 Zola was a republican, but not a socialist, certainly not a revolutionary. His political naivety was compounded by the fact that he still had to supplement his income by working as a journalist.http://pubs.socialistreviewindex.org.uk/isj96/birchall.htm#:~:text=In%201870%2D1871%20Zola%20was,by%20working%20as%20a%20journalist.
