This week UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced delays to some of the critical climate change targets that the government had set, including pushing the ban of petrol and diesel cars to 2035 - this has been pushed back to 2035. Although he cited economic security as the main reason, the announcement sparked backlash from the business community. Will this affect his chances of re-election come 2025? We discuss the fall out with Prof. Chandran Kukathas of the Singapore Management University.
