The UK government's policies are all fatally short-sighted

Peter Wilby describes how Labour's approach to climate change, among other policies, is flawed due to their focus on short-term outcomes and paybacks and a refusal to account for the longer term.

I think this is a product of the lack of accountability in our political system. If an government enacts legislation that may harm people twenty years down the line then the ex-cabinet ministers responsible should be criminally accountable for that harm. Its like corporate responsibility but with politicians instead of directors.
