Chris Skidmore resigns in protest at UK government's oil and gas drilling plans

Chris Skidmore, a former Conservative minister and an advocate for green issues, has resigned as an MP and from the party whip in protest against the government's plan to issue new oil and gas licenses. This move by Skidmore, who was pivotal in implementing the UK's net zero by 2050 pledge, comes ahead of a crucial vote on the bill and signals his strong opposition to the government's fossil fuel strategy. Skidmore's resignation will trigger a byelection in his Kingswood constituency, posing a challenge for the Conservative government.
