Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Something extraordinary happened this week. An accidental truth popped out of Boris Johnson. The Prime Minister was holding a press conference for children about ways to deal with plastic waste and tackle climate change.

Children are often very enthusiastic recyclers: they tend to be caring, socially responsible and keen to do their bit for the planet. Sure enough, Olivia Devaney — a schoolgirl from Northern Ireland — told Mr Johnson that she drank from a reusable bottle and that her family had plastic-free toothbrushes.
