    “the government is planning to phase out oil and gas exploration.” Yeah right, Leo. You granted two exploration licences after the May elections [in the aftermath of which you claimed “you got it” about the Green wave]. You granted licences to a Chinese company and a Chinese-backed company. The first one has given the government a €1 billion indemnity (supposedly, they only had to show an indication they had access to those funds) for any environmental disaster, like destroying marine life off the south coast, destroying the coast with oil slicks, destroying tourism and creating an ecological disaster.

    Those are Leo’s actual credentials.
