Manchester city councillor and committee member Neil Swannick said: ‘Cities and regions are on the frontline when it comes to responding to extreme weather events and climate change.

‘Only by harnessing all our efforts at local, regional, national and EU level can we hope to achieve the changes needed.

  1. This sounds like the socialist mayors trying to expand their powers by using the CO2 bludgeon. Cities run by socialists are shitholes across the EU, as you would expect, all Detroits in the making but with more Mosques. Basically no-go areas. This will go nowhere fast. Won’t stop them from trying again, and again, and again…
