Do the Liberal Democrats’ beloved green principles really hold up to scrutiny?

While they’re often painted as the greenest of the major political parties, up and down the country the Liberal Democrats have been supporting climate-wrecking projects and opposing climate-friendly ones.


Take flying: Huhne said, “The growth of aviation is unsustainable in environmental terms … Liberal Democrats have long advocated that action needs to be taken to control aviation.” Oh, really?
