My point is the same one I made about XR demobilising because of the queen's death: it shows they're not serious, too cowardly, or don't really believe in the scale of the problem or in the effectiveness of their own strategy & tactics. If HRH really views climate change as an existential threat and believes he can make a difference by calling for a wartime footing at successive COP summits then why would he let one of the weakest, most unpopular prime ministers in recent times 'advise' (not order) him not to go? There's bound to be any number of ways he could go around her and justify it, and even if he point blank defies the advice and goes anyway what's the worst that will happen? Constitutional crisis? Pfff, they'd make something up to save face, it happens all the time. I've said it before and I'll say it again: there is no UK democracy.
cheers all the same,
