Scottish Green co-leader Lorna Slater blasted the UK Prime Minister for flying from the G20 summit in Rome to host the seminal climate change conference in Scotland’s largest city yesterday. Sharing footage of the Conservative leader arriving with wife Carrie Johnson at Glasgow, she wrote: “Well, except people who could have taken a train, but decided to fly in a private jet to the conference on how we have to stop carbon emissions… FFS

“It is possible to get from Rome to Glasgow by train, world leaders could have decided to do this. They didn’t.

“This is exactly what I mean. We need our leadership to change how they do things.”

The roughly 1,600-mile journey would take 25 hours on public transport and involve numerous changes, according to Google Maps.

“I will do everything I can think of to work for a Scotland in Europe.”

Travelling from Glasgow to the Swedish capital of Stockholm is roughly the same distance as the Rome trip and would again involve numerous changes.

It would also take marginally longer at around 30 hours.

Commenting on her 2019 post this evening, user Ler.AME wrote: “Well Lorna – did you not travel by train?”

Account Morals not Murrells joked: “Flying in an aeroplane, where is this climate emergency you speak of?”
