The Prime Minister delivered a typically confident and rousing speech with one brief mention of climate change, no mention of pollution or the environment, Paris, COP21 or the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. There were two brief mentions of the deficit and six standing ovations.

Financial Times – David Cameron’s speech: FT writers give their verdicts: “In a speech that touched on the Conservatives’ election victory, national security, immigration, relations with the EU, the new Labour leader, home ownership, education and the economy, David Cameron promised a defining decade for Britain — “one which people will look back on and say, ‘that’s the time when the tide turned’.” Read more.

Friends of the Earth – Head of policy Mike Childs said: “We urgently need to build affordable new homes in the UK – but that mustn’t be at the expense of our environment. Simply building more homes in the countryside won’t solve the affordability crisis, but it will exacerbate the environmental one.
“All new homes should be extremely water and energy efficient, and built in our towns and cities – with easy access to amenities, services and jobs, to avoid climate-wrecking urban sprawl. If the Prime Minister really wants to address the affordability crisis he must tackle the root causes such as housing and land speculation, and rip off landlords.”
