Green Party activists have recreated a famous stunt first carried out on Australia’s Bondi Beach in Brighton to highlight politicians’ ostrich-like attitude to climate change.
Digging holes in Brighton’s shingle was much more challenging, so volunteers dug four holes and wore different coloured trousers to represent the mainstream political parties bent over with their heads in the holes.
Davy Jones, Green Party parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kempton, the constituency where the stunt occurred, said, “We may not have miles of golden strand, but the message from Brighton should be just as powerful: Climate change is going on, it is our fault, and we can do something about it.
“Our politicians need to get their heads out of the sand – or pebbles here in Brighton – for the sake of our children and our grandchildren’s future.”
