Cenex, host of Cenex-LCV, the UK’s premier technology showcasing and networking event for the international low emission vehicle community, is delighted that Prime Minister Theresa May has announced new measures to tackle the effects and causes of climate change. Having attended the One Planet Summit in Paris yesterday, the Prime Minister has announced: £140 million of new funding to help the world’s poorest communities address the effects of climate change; expansion of UK and Canada-led alliance to reduce international use of unabated coal; and confirmation that the UK will host an international Zero Emission Vehicle Summit in Autumn 2018.
Prime Minister Theresa May has indicated that Britain is headed for what might be called a hard Brexit in her most direct speech on the subject since the EU referendum on 23 June 2016. She also announced that Parliament would vote on the final Brexit agreement between the UK and the EU.
No review of 2016 would be complete without some reference to Brexit. Before the referendum result on 23 June, few people thought it would happen. Now the vote of 52 per cent in favour of leaving the European Union has long been counted, we can’t avoid talking about Brexit. Furthermore, with Donald Trump having won the US presidential election on 8 November in what he predicted would be “Brexit+++” the impact of the UK vote has taken on even greater significance.
