Boris Johnson Swiftly Put Down After His Climate Speech: ‘Speak For Yourself Mate’

5 5 61

Boris Johnson didn’t hold back when calling on the world to act against climate change – and his words definitely caused a stir on Twitter.

The prime minister spokes to the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday and urged the world to “grow up” and stop “trashing” the environment.

He then pulled apart the famous saying, “it’s not easy being green” from the Muppets’ character, Kermit the Frog.

However, his past scepticism towards climate change was not forgotten by his Twitter critics.

The Independent’s Tom Peck pointed out that Johnson himself did not support the idea of climate change for ten years after Al Gore’s 2016 film, An Inconvenient Truth which looks at how humanity have damaged the Earth.

Peck added: “And now, apparently, we’re meant to take this cartoon clown seriously.”

For ten years after the release of Al Gore’s film ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ @BorisJohnson carried on as a committed climate change denialist, and now, apparently, we’re meant to take this cartoon clown seriously, as he stands up there, dribbling words out of his mouth arse. pic.twitter.com/aMVk8SoV09

Satire website The Poke did not hesitate to take aim at Johnson either, noting that he told the world to “grow up” just hours after he had flown to the US and told France to “get a grip” of its anger over the new AUKUS pact.

"Boris said it's time for leaders to grow up and take climate change seriously. What did he say, Roy?"
"He flew in on his private jet and said 'Eff off, Frenchies.'"........
