Really Boris a private jet? That’s not green!

UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson decided to fly in a private jet to attend the official start of the G7 summit in Cornwall, even though the event had promised “to create a greener, more prosperous future”.

The flight that Johnson took from London to Newquay covered approximately 250 miles, this distance could have been travelled by a single charging cycle in any singular modern EV.

The decision has drawn a vast amount of criticism on social media towards the PM, where people have called the choice to fly very hypocritical and short-sighted.

The Prime Minister tweeted a photo of himself leaving the private jet on arrival, commenting: “I’ve arrived in Cornwall for this year’s G7 where I’ll be asking my fellow leaders to rise to the challenge of beating the pandemic and building back better, fairer and greener.

“It will be a busy and important Summit, and I can’t wait to get started. #G7UK”

The event in Carbis Bay will see all G7 nations of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the United States come together, alongside extra guest countries India, South Korea and Australia. They will host discussions on how to tackle a variety of global issues which include the recovery period from the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing climate crisis.
