Hilary Benn

August 1, 2008

A few weeks back, I went down to the Departure of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to meet with Hilary Benn, the Cabinet Minister.

As we walked in, our cameraman Greg made a short trip to the loo, where he stood right next to the man himself! A very agreeable and sensible guy, I could tell he wants to ensure that the UK Climate Change Bill does what it is supposed to do – make Britain a leader in cutting carbon emissions, and avoid dangerous Climate Change.

I was glad I showed him the satellite animation of Arctic ice retreat, he was stunned. Sometimes pictures do say a lot more, (especially when I dramatically count the years passing with sombre gravitas!).

And would I let him go to a crucial vote without first doing a Green Finger?

It’s on WWF’s website here too.
