The Prime Minister loves to promise the grass is greener in the sunlit uplands - it’s not going to wash anymore.

GMB, Britain’s general union, has responded to the Prime Minister's speech at Conservative Party Conference today.

Jude Brimble, GMB National Secretary, said:

“The Prime Minister loves to promise the grass is greener in the sunlit uplands - without any kind of proper plan. It’s not going to wash anymore.

“The UK desperately needs huge investment in green energy infrastructure and the millions of jobs that it would create.

“But previous promises of green jobs have seen yards in Britain mothballed and manufacturing contracts outsourced overseas.

“The Prime Minister is relying on powers the UK may or may not have post-Brexit. Once again his promises look like nothing more than hot air.”
