Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg calls for panic – and a general strike in the UK
24 April 2019
She added: ‘If your house is on fire then that does require some level of panic. You don’t sit talking about insurance claims and rebuilding – you do everything you can to put out the fire.”
Britain’s most high-profile politicians rushed back from their holidays yesterday to be photographed alongside the 16-year-old environmental activist who took the House of Commons “by storm”.
MPs including John Bercow, Jeremy Corbyn and Ed Miliband welcomed Greta Thunberg to Parliament, where she made a speech about climate change and got a rapturous round of applause.
