Rishi Sunak was blasted for claiming to have “scrapped” measures that were never Government policy during his net zero speech this week.
In a speech in Downing Street, Mr Sunak said he will be easing a series of green policies while setting out a “new approach” designed to protect “hard-pressed British families” from “unacceptable costs”.
He confirmed the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030 will be pushed back to 2035 and changes to the Government’s plan to phase out new boilers.
But the PM also claimed to have scrapped a series of “heavy-handed measures”, such as a tax on meat and flying, compulsory car-sharing and forcing people to recycle in seven different bins.
Reaction to the latter policy was quick to flood in on social media, with Count Binface saying he has been inundated with requests for media interviews.
