“The UK applauds the Secretary-General’s work to use Our Common Agenda to bring coherence to both the future of multilateralism and achieving the SDGs, claimed Thérèse Coffey at the Preparatory Ministerial Meeting of the Summit of the Future on 21st September 2023 at the United Nations General Assembly 78th Session held in New York. Did she even consider asking the people of the UK about such far-reaching, detrimental policies? asks UKCITIZEN.
Thérèse Coffey is the Member of Parliament for Suffolk Coastal, who was once reported as singing“Time of My Life’ hours before cutting Universal Credit for millions of people,” “Coffey ended the £20-a-week Universal Credit payment uplift that had been a lifeline for millions of people, in what is the biggest welfare cut since the Second World War,”
Additionally, during the UKs “cost of living crisis and widespread shortage of some fruits and vegetables – which has seen supermarkets introduce rationing” Environment Minister, Therese Coffey suggested that “people struggling to afford their soaring food bills could consider working more hours.” Labour MP Rachael Maskell could be heard saying “That’s appalling”(source)
Coffey was also “booed by farmers for trying to explain away food shortages” while in her role as Environment Secretary during the National Farmers’ Union Conference at the ICC and “ended up in a tense clash with the president of the National Farmers’ Union, Minette Batters, over the decline in egg production we saw in 2022.” (source)
Batters, “Front page of every newspaper, salad shortages, Asda rationing.”

When in the role of Health Minister, Coffey was confronted about her own lifestyle because of a famous photo of her smoking and drinking but said: ‘My focus is on how we deliver for patients and I appreciate I may not be the role model’. (source)
That she is not, this is one individual who has a limited ability to accurately assess the prevailing atmosphere in a given situation and, as a result, has a history of not effectively representing the interests of the general UK population, but is clearly only interested in serving her masters.
