Biden’s turned into Captain America to hijack climate debate… and left Britain & BoJo looking lost

Forty global leaders came together at the behest of Washington to show their commitment to battling climate change. But it was also a power play by Joe Biden, as he took control of an agenda that was set to be discussed at COP26.

Boris Johnson was primed for his big moment. The United Nations climate change summit COP26 was heading for Glasgow in 2020, and he would sit atop a cabal of global heads of state. But Covid-19 struck, so it had to be delayed until November this year.

He was so keen to dominate the agenda, he even abandoned plans to host daily White House-style briefings from his new £2.6million TV studio. Instead, he reassigned the well-paid journalist recruited to host those briefings to be his official COP26 spokesperson.

Things reached fever pitch when Joe Biden revealed he would likely fly over to attend in person. Boris would be the genial host, backslapping the world’s leaders on his own turf. He would finally be the grand statesman he dreamed of.

But then, like most US presidents, Biden turned into Captain America and decided to seize control of the global debate. And so this week, he hosted his two-day Leaders Summit on Climate. But that was a misnomer. It was Biden’s Summit.
