The Republican Party Has A Branch In the UK
Climate change denial has been a key platform of the Republican Party in the US. Many conservatives in the UK regard the Tea Party inspired US Republican Party as a bit mad. However, the conservative government has proposed legislation which would enable the oil industry to extract every bit of oil that it can. The press in the UK, which is primarily right leaning, has been very supportive. It has provided a platform for climate change deniers. It looks like conservatives in the UK are becoming a mirror image of the party that it regards as a bit mad. Politics encourages strange bed fellows.
