2 mins read

The GB News host called for Ms Truss to ” move immediately” with a “code red short term strategy”. The Kiwi broadcaster also slammed the Liberal Democrats for their role in opposing nuclear power during the coalition claiming they were “on the wrong side of history”.

Mr Wootton also blasted the Conservative Party for their “NIMBYISM and paranoia” along with their “net zero” obsession that has seen the UK move away from fossil fuels without any viable green alternative.

He said: “The outgoing Prime Minister did his best today to secure his energy security legacy.

“Just as the country is plunged into a catastrophic winter crisis because of our reliance on bad actors.”

The host continued: “Boris Johnson called out the Conservatives former coalition partner, the Liberal Democrats, whose ex and current leader Nick Clegg and Ed Davey respectively are at least in part responsible for where we find ourselves.”

Mr Wootton blamed Davey and Clegg of “shortsighted” and “knee-jerk lobbying to halt new nuclear power and see fracking banned”.

He added: “Let me tell you those two are without doubt on the wrong side of history.”

According to Mr Wootton, the outgoing PM also targeted Labour’s Tony Blair and Gordon Brown for “short term thinking and a failure to invest in nuclear energy that has led to this perilous position”.

However the former Sun journalist added that Mr Johnson only told part of the story and added that “it was the NIMBYISM and paranoia that halted franking for example.
