Jim Murphy, Labour member of parliament for East Renfrewshire and the shadow secretary of state for international development

That is a thrilling prospect — which is why these [U.N.] negotiations need an urgent injection of radical ambition led by the U.K. However, the British government is not doing enough to push things forward. … The U.K. has a robust record on development. We have helped steer the world to groundbreaking agreements — the time has come for Britain to do so again…” (7/14).
