    Southport Lib Dem Parliamentary candidate Erin Harvey believes that the recent u-
    turn by Keir Starmer on his party’s green prosperity plan is bad news for Southport’s
    economic and social future.

    Last week Keir Starmer abandoned Labour party plans to spend £28 bn a year on
    green investment if elected. The figure will now be under £15 bn and only a third of
    this would be new money.

    Erin commented: “We have known for a while that the Tories have abandoned even
    the pretence of caring about green investment following the PM’s rowback on key
    policies last year. Now we can see that Labour have clearly signalled that green
    investment and climate change are not going to be a priority to them.

    “This is bad news for our town. Beyond the headlines of this being a PR disaster for
    the Labour party is a much more serious point about the failure of both parties to
    understand the need for investment in green infrastructure for the economy and also
    to keep down household and business energy bills.

    “Southport sits on the coast so we are exposed to the threats of climate change but
    also perfectly placed to be part of the economic opportunities that exist in a net zero
    economy, harnessing our natural advantages. Our town could be a leader in coastal
    energy but it needs to be backed up by strategy, investment and vision.

    “Labour have now proved that they won’t put their money where their mouth is and
    that putting towns like ours in the best position to benefit from the energy transition is not a priority.”

    Mr. Rotherham may have signed an agreement with South Korea over a proposed tidal lagoon for Liverpool, but this is rather short sighted. Not only has South Korea seen a drastic reduction in sea life and fishing, but also a huge reduction, 80%, in birds. The losses caused a revolution in S. Korea and there are no plans to build any more lagoons. The huge cost of building an iconic lagoon has cost the country far more than financial losses. The building of the lagoon took fifteen years to build, and has destroyed much of the profit making, food providing wild life on it's natural wetlands which are far more valuable to the country than alternative domestic fuel. The South Koreans still pay a very high price for their fuel since 97% of it is still imported and they face year on year increases. The remaining percentage is obtained from fossil fuels.

    It will not be the threat of Carbon we must be worried about on the Planet - but human interference with our natural environment. It is of great concern to many people of the huge losses of wild life seen, due to the house building projects.
