Karren Brady blasts Rishi Sunak's 'ridiculous' decision to block King Charles from Cop27
The TV star added: “Our monarch understands the problem, cares about it passionately, and will have more impact on creating action from governments around the world than any member of parliament will.”King Charles is currently set to follow Rishi’s advice that he should skip the event, although the Environment Secretary, Thérèse Coffey, suggested on Thursday that it was up to the monarch if he attended the conference.Former Prime Minister Liz Truss had originally advised His Majesty to stay away from the conference because she wanted to use his first foreign trip for diplomatic leverage with nations such as Canada. A Downing Street spokeswoman confirmed on Thursday that the government had advised the monarch to stay away from the summit.She said: “As is standard practice, government advice was sought and provided under a previous PM, and it was unanimously agreed it would not be the right occasion for the King to visit.”Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called on Rishi to “show leadership” by attending the event to promote unity among world leaders.He said: "Many people would be expecting a prime minister of the UK not just to attend but to use it as an opportunity to pull world leaders together to deal with climate.”Rishi said last week that he believed it was “right” to instead focus on the UK economy before Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s autumn Budget on November 17.On a visit to Croydon University Hospital, in south London, he said: “The leadership that we have shown on the climate is unmatched almost along the world.“It’s important to me that we leave behind an environment that is better for our children and grandchildren.”The PM continued: “I’m personally committed to it.“I just think, at the moment, it’s right that I’m

Covid-19 and currently, the rise of inflation.The 54-year-old said she had no trust in the leading party as she detailed how businesses have been suffering. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, she said: "I think what they need to do is basically come together and actually have a committee."We employ three million people, we're the third or fourth biggest industry in the UK and yet we don't have a voice in Government."So, we either need some sort of minister in hospitality or a sub minister to have a committee where you get every sector so, from the hotels, the restaurants or catering colleges, the whole lot."And I think that has not happened. If they were smart that's what they would do.Alex Scott teases very racy sheer jumpsuit to film Graham Norton Show"It's ridiculous the way it is at the moment because they're dealing with people's lives."Whatever they're going to do, stick with it, decide it and if she's [Lizz Truss] the one, just batten down and get on with the job."They're just making it all about themselves."Angela spoke out ahead of Liz Truss resigning after just 45 days in power this week. The ex Prime Minister has since been replaced by successor Rishi Sunak, who endorsed furlough in 2020.The scheme was designed to support employers to retain and continue to pay staff while businesses were closed.The chef said she counted herself "lucky" to have been able to keep her restaurants running during the pandemic by introducing a takeaway service."We had four businesses that were making no money for however many months and we've all been left with more debt than when we closed with," she explained."But, we got through it, we've still got all our businesses so we've been lucky.

But Piers’ remarks caused debate among other social media users, who rushed to reply to his tweet stating their own stances on the latest political development.AmeliaRocket1 questioned: “Will you still be supporting him when he cuts public spending to pay for his own economic mistakes and mismanagement and when these policies collapse the NHS, the same NHS you spent lockdown harking on about?”Simbapatel responded: “He didn’t create covid or war in Ukraine to rise energy prices … most of cuts in spending is driven by external factors.“Money don’t grow on trees you need to balance books but let’s hope most in need gets funding but others will need to suffer it’s facts.” (Sic)JuliesBarnes enquired: “The only speech that is relevant is due on the 31st.“The question is: will Sunak make his difficult decisions fall on the shoulders of people who are already financially struggling and oversee more public service cuts?“Or will he be in charge of a fairer society?”Markhem76 said: “I beg to differ.The finger pointing & hanging out to dry of Truss was a move he could live to regret.“Everyone knows the disastrous policies of Truss and co but he used that as a vehicle to sweep his own mistakes under the table & no doubt has made enemies when he needs goodwill.”LutherBees stated: “I speak for the nation that we believe in Rishi.”The new Prime Minister entered No10 just 49 days after Tory members rejected his bid to take on the top job.The party's grassroots put their faith in Liz Truss's vision for a low tax economy and many also blamed him for the downfall of Boris Johnson.He was appointed as Conservative leader yesterday in a fast-tracked process.The former chancellor was the only candidate to receive enough support from MPs to

Brian May, 75, has described his “anger and disgust” at the way the current Conservative government has conducted itself in a rage-fuelled rant on Instagram. In view of his 3.1 million followers, the Queen musician called for a general election and suggested the reinstatement of Boris Johnson, 58, as Prime Minister would be “the last straw”.Yesterday Liz Truss, 47, told the public she would be stepping down as PM and that her replacement would be appointed in the space of just one week. However, many people across the country are now calling for a general election, including the Queen guitarist. “This morning I feel anger and disgust,” May began in a furious rant, as he posted a picture of an article discussing who might be the next Conservative Prime Minister with a big red cross through it. “The appalling, inexcusable ruination of our country.That’s what ALL these ‘candidates’ stand for,” he wrote. “They are all complicit in this mess which has made us the laughing stock of the world.“The people of this country demand THEIR right to choose our next leader,” he continued.“Nothing less than an IMMEDIATE GENERAL ELECTION is acceptable.“Even to consider reinstating the disgraced liar Boris Johnson is the last straw.” The musician insisted: “We CANNOT let this bunch of clowns do this to us any more.“They need to be removed and replaced, never to return.

Would you fracking believe it?” Lineker penned, making a quip about the chaotic vote on fracking that occurred in the House of Commons yesterday.While Truss’s government won the key vote, the victory was overshadowed by claims that Tory whips had physically manhandled and bullied backbenchers into backing the Prime Minister’s administration.Some MPs spoke of “total carnage” and “utter madness”, while others have called for an investigation to take place. Labour’s motion, which sought to ban the controversial practice of fracking, was defeated by 230 votes to 326.In another tweet, Lineker wrote: “We appear to have completely lost the plot.
