Prime Minister Scott Morrison is flip-flopping on attending the Glasgow climate change conference again and may now attend after he was lightly savaged by Prince Charles for threatening to be a no-show at the event www.news.com.au/technology/environment/climate-change/scott-morrison-likely-to-backflip-on-glasgow-climate-change-conference/news-story/8208d18f843060fa166a616eb7603517
While there’s been plenty of bad behaviour from both Coalition and Labor in the past, this Government of @ScottMorrisonMP and @Barnaby_Joyce may be the 1st in our history to see governing solely in terms of the pork barrel. #FederalICACNow #auspol www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2021/oct/12/coalition-mps-given-chance-to-lobby-for-projects-set-to-miss-out-on-300m-regional-funding-national-reveals

Speaking to the BBC, the Royal explained how he's named his autumn garden on the Balmoral estate after Prince George himself. "This was a rather empty field that the farm didn't need anymore," he said, "The great thing was that I managed to plant it the same year that my grandson was born, the eldest, George, so I thought I'd call it Prince George's wood." How adorable?
The garden clearly holds a special place in the Prince of Wales' heart, as he referred to it as an "old man's obsession." The 72-year-old added: "It is really for autumn colour and a bit of spring. But autumn is the magic up here. So finding all the interesting trees and shrubs that turn an interesting colour is half the battle."
Prince Charles welcomed his first grandchild, Prince George, on 22 July 2013 – and he is third in line to the throne after his father, Prince William, and of course his granddad. After Prince George's birth, the Prince of Wales became a grandfather a further four times, welcoming Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's children, Archie Harrison and Lilibet.
"I don't eat meat and fish on two days a week and I don't eat dairy products on one day a week," he explained, "If more [people] did that, you would reduce a lot of the pressure." The Royal pointed out that on top of that, he's converted his Aston Martin car (which he's owned for 50 years) to run on what he described as "surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process." Sounds, err, interesting.
His interview comes just a few weeks ahead of the COP26 Summit which will be held in Glasgow next month. The Summit, also known as the United Nations Climate Change Conference, will see various world leaders come together to discuss how to stop climate change and better protect the environment. The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William are all expected to attend the conference.
