Green-wash, Brexit and reshuffles: Our KCC member on Paul on Politics

Our Kent County Councillor, Martin Whybrow, was on this Friday’s Paul on Politics show on KMTV. In an entertaining and wide-ranging discussion, alongside fellow KCC councillor, Labour’s Karen Constantine, he discussed Tory green-wash, in light of Theresa May’s speech on Thursday (too vague, too little on how the aspirations would be achieved and still a long way to go from a government that pursues schemes such as the Lower Thames Crossing and a new runway at Heathrow, blatantly ignores issues such as air quality, and still pursues fossil fuels through fracking).

Also on the agenda was a second Brexit referendum and what a hard Brexit could mean for Kent (including why the lorry park proposal was “a dumb idea that I hope is now dead in the water”) plus central government and KCC reshuffles, including why the KCC cabinet member for transport is like the England football manager’s job – it never ends well.
