MORE than two-thirds of Scottish voters think Boris Johnson was wrong to fly in a private jet from London to Cornwall to push for a "greener" planet.

Johnson arrived in the English county for what would turn out to be a disastrous G7 summit for his notion of a "Global Britain".

The Prime Minister faced admonitions from EU leaders and US president Joe Biden over his Tory government's handling of the Northern Ireland Protocol, which it had negotiated and agreed before accusing the EU of sticking to it with "legal purism".

Now, polling conducted by Savanta ComRes for news website Left Foot Forward has shown that it is not only other world leaders who disapprove of Johnson's behaviour at the G7 summit.

The polls results show that 54% of voters across the UK think the Prime Minister's decision to fly the approximately 250-mile journey to Cornwall was wrong.

This rises to 69% in Scotland, where the opposition to the move was strongest.

Even Tory voters thought Johnson was wrong to have flown, with 42% opposing the flight compared to 40% who supported it. Among Leave voters the numbers were firmer, with 53% of people saying it had been the wrong choice.

Opposition to the flight was highest among the older age groups. A total of 64% of 55-64 year olds said it was the wrong decision, while 45% of 18-24 year olds agreed.

Chris Hopkins, associate director of Savanta ComRes, told Left Foot Forward: “It does seem fairly hypocritical of Boris Johnson to fly to Cornwall to host the G7 where climate change will be high on the agenda, and the fact that a majority think it was the wrong decision from him says a lot.

“However, that younger adults were more likely to think that his decision was right than older adults, indicating that climate issues are not exclusively stoking the fire of younger generations.”

Speaking after his flight, Johnson told reporters: “If you attack my arrival by plane, I respectfully point out that the UK is actually in the lead in developing sustainable aviation fuel and one of the points in the 10-point plan for our green industrial revolution is to get to jet-zero as well as net-zero.”
