Description

This painting is about global warming, with a personal letter transcribed on the surface. It is an appeal to Boris Johnson to exercise his rule-breaking tendencies for the good of mankind to initiate a Green New Deal:

Covid19 is devastating our people, with thousands of personal tragedies rocking the nation and proving how vulnerable we are. Existing rules and promises no longer apply; new solutions need to be found. You clearly have a radical approach to governing and are prepared to break rules and try the unthinkable, and you are committed to Make Britain Great Again. This is arguably your most important quality for the global crisis we are facing.

You say you love your country, but you have spent the last 3 years sowing seeds of division and distrust, and your Party has created austerity and endorsed the dismantling of our beloved NHS. However, your reputation of trustworthiness could be salvaged by promising bailouts and concessions to fossil fuel companies, on condition that they 1) stop extraction immediately, 2) restore nature, 3) divest to green technology and energy and 4) implement a Five Year Green New Deal after Lockdown. …

Taking this step will ensure your premiership equals that of your hero, Winston Churchill.
