      Wonder if he has taken this bit on board?
      “The overall costs of the transition to a net-zero economy are manageable but they must be fairly distributed. Rapid cost reductions in essential technologies such as offshore wind and batteries for electric vehicles mean that a net-zero greenhouse gas target can be met at an annual cost of up to 1-2% of GDP to 2050. However, the costs of the transition must be fair, and must be perceived as such by workers and energy bill payers. The Committee recommends that the Treasury reviews how the remaining costs of achieving net- zero can be managed in a fair way for consumers and businesses.”

    In the news the fact the Prime Minister and her partner got engaged. The expected attention is being directed at the news:

    “Wedding and a new sprog in time for next election, jeez just how low can some go.”

    “Serve you right Clark……buy a dog dude you would be better off. Just another look at me moment for st sinda……”

    “Just another photo op, and excuse to be absent from parliament “ planning the wedding. “
