"Al Gore says Tories' green plan a 'fraud'."
On most occasions, I would politely tell a foreign politician to please stay out of our internal affairs...much the way I did when Segolene Royal was quoted as egging on Quebec independence. But this issue is different. The environmental challenge is global, it's a matter of science. It transcends borders and the world needs to be moving in a concerted direction.
And it serves John Baird right. He's invited Al Gore into our debate himself. Baird has previously tried to mislead people by suggesting Al Gore has approved of the Conservative government's environmental policies. Gore's just being crystal clear on that today.
