Putting 'Next Generation First'? Critics Denounce UK's 'Climate-Wrecking Budget'

Here we go! After the so-called Paris Agreement, Britain comes out with a plan that continues to destroy the planet and add to global warming. Expect to see the same with the U.S., particularly if Hillary or Trump get s/elected.
Like Britian, they'll say it is for the good of the future...yeah the future increased wealth of the 1%....

Well, of course George Osborne has given tax breaks to the oil and gas industry, it's part of the family business. Maybe his father-in-law had something to do with it:

But don't hold your breath waiting for this connection to be mentioned on the BBC News.
