Andrew Jones, MP for Harrogate & Knaresborough, voted against environmental measures 85% of the time, and for them in just 15% of cases, according to the Guardian's analysis.

During this election campaign, the Conservatives will make a token effort to look as though they're interested in our climate and environment. They've put a temporary hold on fracking, because they know it's so unpopular, but their manifesto was written by a fracking lobbyist!

Follow the money. Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi has received more than a million pounds from fossil fuel companies. Three of the biggest donors to the Tory party are funders or board members of Nigel Lawson's Global Warming Policy Foundation. No decent party or politician ought to be associated with the appalling misdirection emanating from Lawson's outfit.

The Guardian's analysis of MPs' voting records on environmental issues has a lot of blue dots (Conservative MPs) on the left, indicating a lack of support for environmental measures. While Jones scored a measly 15%, his party leader Johnson fared even worse, with 0%.

In four votes on badgers, Andrew Jones MP voted in favour of killing them three times, and was absent once.

If you want a habitable planet, please don't vote for Johnson's Conservatives or Andrew Jones.
