Lord David Frost



Lord David Frost - Minister of State, Cabinet Office - Former Brexit negotiator Lord David Frost remains in the cabinet. He was drafted in by Boris Johnson in February to take charge of forging a new relationship with the EU. The former diplomat replaced Michael Gove as co-chair of a committee on implementing the Brexit withdrawal deal.



We think Lord Frost made the right decision, in view of what is a virtual freefall in Conservative Party confidence in Boris Johnson, and his inability as a capable leader. The fact is that Brexit, or BrexShit as some are now calling the mire, remains incomplete. The election manifesto promise made by Bojo has not been fulfilled.


Lord Frost was tasked with the Brexit negotiating process and had reportedly become fed up with the back-and-forth over the Northern Ireland protocol and the fishing licenses disputes. Mariya Gabriel, the European Union's Commissioner for Innovation and Research, said back in October that Britain could not re-join the Horizon Europe programme until these issues were resolved.

While not the only reason for his departure, this may have proved too long a wait for Lord Frost, who repeatedly attempted to resolve these issues with European Vice Commissioner Maros Sefcovic.

Little progress was made in the many rounds of talks, with neither side agreeing to compromise.

The science community have argued that Britain's suspension from Horizon Europe, which would bring a huge boost to research and innovation projects that could access the huge pool of European funding, was damaging the UK science sector minute by minute.

Lord Frost was furious with the EU for mustering up the ban, pointing out that Britain's inclusion in Horizon Europe was part of the Brexit deal and a feature of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA).

He told the House of Lords last month: "We agreed we would participate in this in the TCA and we agreed to pay a contribution of £15billion over seven years.

"The TCA is clear, the UK shall participate and the relevant protocol shall be adopted, that is an obligation.

"If it became clear that the EU will not deliver that obligation - and it has not done so far - we will regard them as in breach of Article 710 of the TCA."


A senior Government source said Lord Frost's departure had been prompted by the introduction of 'Plan B' Covid measures, including vaccine passports

But that was just the final straw after months of growing discontent over tax rises and (apparently) what is perceived as a "staggering" cost of 'net zero' environmental policies. However, that can be taken many ways. Where renewable energy is cheaper that nuclear, and affordable housing can be implemented with simple policy changes - that may affect the investments of Tory landlords - and bankers - in a shift to a more sustainable Britain. Indeed, with green hydrogen and a suitable infrastructure, electric vehicles might thrive. Again, upsetting investments in oil and petroleum fossil fuels. Hence, the stocks markets and cronies who oppose change, will lose. As much as the pensioner's whose savings have been wiped out by post Covid inflation.


Boris is after all, married to a conservationist. Hence, a lot of what he has done, and ignoring the scandal for now, has been to mix it up a little on the sustainable front. Unfortunately, confused by the acceptance of political contributions that may have brought the extant system into disrepute. What is perhaps needed, as the Monarchy grits their teeth for modernisation, is a Written Constitution. This would remove the honours system as the (ultimate) means to control judicial decisions and financial contributions to political parties for honours. Where such a system allows the State to obtain convictions in relation to SLAPP actions, designed to vex political nonconformists and other corruption challenges, by discrediting them sufficiently to effectively pull their Article 9 & 10 teeth - and so muzzle opposition.



Prime Minister Boris Johnson carried out a reshuffle of his 24 cabinet members on Wednesday (15 September 2021), removing several key ministers.


This is the second major reshuffle since Mr Johnson became leader of the Conservative party and took over as prime minister from Theresa May in July 2019. The last one took place in February 2020. But can any amount of shuffling within a party with tunnel vision, cure their toxic policies?


Some of the big moves included Liz Truss to foreign secretary, the Tories' first woman in that role; Nadhim Zahawi moved from leading the vaccine rollout to education - at the expense of Gavin Williamson; and Nadine Dorries stepped up from health minister to culture secretary.


Who's in the other posts? Below is a guide to the people that make up Mr Johnson's cabinet, with the latest new faces. The burning question is, will it make any difference to Britain's performance on the world climate stage. Or will they be feathering their nests and fiddling on their violins, while Planet A frys. Or are they the B team?


Following the abysmal result from COP26, all that can be said is, the cabinet need to scratch their heads a little more, stop taking second jobs - that deprives their constituents of MP thinking time, that should properly be spent on COP27 (set for Egypt), saving lives and of course; developing a sustainable economy. Ancient Egypt is a prime example of an un-sustainable civilization that developed itself out of house and home - not to be emulated. But that is where we are headed.

Apart from the rather misguided denials from China, USA, India, Russia and Australia, COP26 did give us reductions on forest felling, and at least the mention of fossil fuels in the approved text.


But, both Australia, China and India said they'd be stepping up coal use to expand their economies. Hence, Greta Thunberg was right about greenwashing and blah, blah, blah. The world has gone backwards, now these nations have told us their plans.


Accordingly, the remaining countries assume commitments to build up efforts for reduction of energy consumption based on unabated coal and abandonment of inefficient fossil fuel subsidies.

Nearly 200 countries have made an unprecedented and historic pledge to speed up the end of fossil fuel subsidies and coal at the COP26 climate summit, where India pushed through an 11th hour intervention to weaken the language on coal. So nailing their colours to the mast.

Crucially, despite almost a fortnight’s negotiations that ran more than 24 hours late, the 196 countries meeting in Glasgow committed to issuing stronger 2030 climate plans next year in a bid to avert dangerous global warming.

Pledges at COP26 are expected to see Earth warm 2.4°C this century, better than the predicted 2.7°C predicted before the summit but still a rise that would bring extreme climate impacts and see countries overshoot their shared goals of 1.5°C and “well below” 2°C.

The promise to “revisit and strengthen” new plans by the end of 2022 means the UK government hosting the summit can credibly claim to have delivered its aim of “keeping alive” the 1.5°C target. “It is a big moment,” says Chris Stark of the Climate Change Committee, an independent group that advises the UK government.

Fresh plans submitted next year for curbing emissions in 2030 must be aligned with the 1.5°C goal, an important new requirement that means those governments who fall short will have to justify why to their citizens. Australia, Brazil and Indonesia are among many countries whose existing plans are inadequate and will need to be strengthened.

Until today, coal and fossil fuel subsidies have never been explicitly mentioned in 26 years of treaties and decisions at UN climate talks, despite coal being one of the key drivers of global warming and $5.9 trillion of subsidies being given annually to coal, oil and gas.

The language in COP26’s final decision text, now known as the Glasgow Climate Pact, sees countries agree to “accelerating efforts” on the phase-out of “inefficient” subsidies. In a dramatic last-minute intervention, minutes before the outcome was adopted, India proposed a watered-down version of the language on coal, changing “phasing down” of coal rather than “phasing out.”

G20 abusers will say they had no choice. They needed to keep burning coal, gas and oil for their economies - just like the camp guards at the many concentration camps in WWII, they were forced into business as usual. In the case of the camp guards, they argued they were just following orders. But that is not true. We all have choices. There are clean alternatives, such as solar and wind power. There is no need to keep building coal fired electricity generating stations, and no need to drive carcinogenic petrol or diesel vehicles that contribute to between 7-8 million deaths a year from lung cancer. We have hydrogen fuel cells, electrolyzers and zero emission electric vehicles.


If you are going to increase electricity capacity, it makes sense to invest in renewable energy, unless it is that the fossil fuel giants are lubricating the works with party donations. If that is the case, we say that such contributions should be transparently declared, that the public is informed as to what is guiding policy decisions.







Note: BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) is a term widely used in the UK to describe people of non-white descent, as defined by the Institute of Race Relations.








The make-up of the cabinet has also changed with all the comings and goings. There are two more women then there had been before the reshuffle, but the proportion has stayed about the same because the overall number of people attending cabinet has also increased slightly.


As for the education of those now in cabinet, about 63% of them went to private schools, down slightly when compared to Mr Johnson's previous reshuffle last year - but still a stark contrast to his predecessor's. Just 30% of Theresa May's first cabinet in 2016 attended independent schools, which was fewer than both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown's original cabinets.


According to the Sutton Trust social mobility charity, every prime minister since 1937 who attended university was educated at Oxford - except for Mr Brown. At 43%, Mr Johnson's new cabinet has slightly fewer members who were educated at Oxford or Cambridge compared to his last reshuffle - but it's still more than double what is was in Tony Blair's first cabinet in 1997.










It is no fault of Bozo, that Australia, China, India, Russia and USA have refused to cease using coal in the near future (2030- 2040), but they did sign the Glasgow Climate Pact.


Those countries with fossil fool policies are too entrenched in carcinogenic fuels to save around two hundred and forty 240,000,000 million lives from 2030 to 2050. This figure is based on current death statistics from lung cancer and related respiratory diseases, that are likely to rise as earth's temperature increases. This does not include projected deaths from heat stroke, starvation, thirst and displacement.
