A ten year old can work out that this government has got its priorities wrong

I think this might be the best quote I will find in today’s newspapers. It comes from an Observer article on the repeated flooding of a school in Bassetlaw, Nottinghamshire:

One 10-year-old reflected on why her school kept getting submerged. “I know Brexit is quite important,” she said, “but I really think the government needs to do more about climate change.”

She is absolutely right. We are having an election where the party likely to win most seats has got its priorities completely wrong.
