Christmas cheer

Today my chambers in Little Lonsdale Street are having their Christmas lunch. There have been some good tales, fine wines, and hearty food.

As we have been regaling the past year, and toasting the year ahead, thousands of delegates are meeting at Copenhagen, and the omens for a planet-saving outcome are poor.

The Australian government has been the target of particular criticism. Our carbon output is high, our figures are rorted, and yet we claim to be taking action on the climate.

This is not leadership: it is digging a deeper hole for our children.
