Letter to the editor (Labour's greenwash)


Dear Editor,

I wonder if Labour’s Cllr Mansell noticed what was directly opposite her response to my letter on the floods in Croydon. Discerning readers of this paper would have seen that opposite her ‘greenwash’ ridden letter was an article highlighting Croydon Green Party’s Chris Sciberras peaceful visit to the Climate Camp at Heathrow airport.
The irony was overwhelming because it is her government that is backing airport expansion at Heathrow and other airports.

Aviation is the UK’s fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. Scientists at the Tyndall Centre predict that aviation’s emissions alone are set to exceed the government’s target for the UK’s entire output of greenhouse gases in 2050.

If Cllr Mansell is genuinely concerned about climate change then maybe she needs to start writing letters to her own party leader rather than the local paper.

Yours sincerely

Shasha Khan
Croydon Green Party
