A dozen representatives of big business will today meet with Tony Blair to urge him to take stronger action against CO2 emmissions and do more to combat climate change. They, rightly, argue that forcing British industries to innovate will make them more efficient and give them a lead in what is going to be a major field.
Other industry groups, of course, have argued the opposite. I think it’s time to close down the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) because they obviously don’t have their members’ best interests at heart. Every time I hear Sir Digby Jones on Today he sounds like an arrogant buffoon. I know I wouldn’t want him speaking for me.
