ALBA TO UNVEIL SCOTLAND’S REPRESENTATIVES AT THE COP26 CLIMATE SUMMIT
PHOTO-CALL: FRIDAY 8 OCTOBER 2021, 1:00 PM, BELL’S BRIDGE, GLASGOW.
As Glasgow gets ready to host the delegates from over 190 countries from across the World for the COP26 Climate Summit ALBA Depute Leader Kenny MacAskill MP and Cllr Michelle Ferns will unveil Scotland’s representatives at the COP26 Summit at a Photo-Call on Friday 8 October 2021 at 1:00 pm at Bell’s Bridge over the River Clyde in Glasgow G3 8QT.
Speaking today as he unveiled the Scottish delegation to COP26 (Friday) Kenny MacAskill MPsaid:
“ In a few weeks the World will come to Scotland’s biggest city for the United Nations Climate Change conference. But despite introducing World leading climate change legislation and hosting COP26 Scotland will not have a seat at the table when the big decisions are made. The UK will be in the driving seat while Scotland’s position is best summed up by an empty chair.
“ Meanwhile other nations much smaller than Scotland such as the Maldives and Malta will be represented while Scotland sits on the side lines. This sums up the futility of Devolution. At the very moment these historic talks, are taking place in Scotland, to address the biggest challenge facing humanity, Scotland will be an observer not a participant.”
Cllr Michelle Ferns continued:
“ Unless decisive action is taken by the World’s leaders, meeting in Glasgow, global warming will not only persist but lead to extreme weather events across the World. As an independent nation Scotland would be able to play its full part in those discussions but sadly that will not be the case.
“ Despite this global and potentially Earth saving event being held in Glasgow, Scotland will not be represented in its own right. We will play the part of tartan waiter to the visiting dignitaries rather than playing our full part as an independent nation”.
Kenny MacAskill MP concluded:
“ An empty chair outside the COP26 Conference centre is as close as our own First Minister will get to the climate talks which will take place between the Presidents and Prime Ministers taking part. That is the price of Devolution and through inaction and delay on Independence, it is a price which the Scottish Government appears only too willing to pay”.
Cop 26 highlights Scottish second class status in our own country. Despite 97% of our energy coming from renewable sources and living in a country with the best potential sites for a wide variety of renewable development Scotland will have no voice in these vital discussions.
Instead Boris, who has spent years doing his best to undermine Scotland will sit and boast about all the “UK” has achieved.
DEVOLUTION IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. GRADUALISM IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.. STURGEON…FINISH THE SENTENCE YOURSELF.
I am, as always
Yours for Scotland
