BORIS Johnson has been accused of acting like a “climate change denier” in a scathing speech by Liberal Democrats environment spokeswoman Wera Hobhouse. In the first speech from one of leader Jo Swinson’s top team at the party conference in Bournemouth, she said: “Now, like Trump, Johnson is talking about ‘extreme weather conditions’ – he is moving away from the acceptance of climate change.

Hobhouse said “populist” leaders across the globe were using the impact of climate change to their own advantage.

“Whether it is Trump, or Bolsonaro, Putin, or any other dictator across the world, they all actively encourage activities that create environmental chaos, division, social instability and economic disruption. Because these are the conditions in which they thrive,” she told party members at the Bournemouth International Centre.
