Of course the eco-fascists ( perhaps particularly Millband ) in the Labour party want the Con-dems to proceed with deep carbon emission cuts as it will increase the number of people out of a job by the next general election and theoretically increase Labour's chances of being returned with an overall majority. The only problem is that the 2008 Climate Change Act could by then become the dead albatross hung around Milliband's neck, voters voters everywhere but not many for him ?
After intermittently watching the coverage of the Energy Bill going through the HoC I can't help speculating that it is little more than the blueprint for a complex investment scam for the benefit of the Banks and big business. If anything the provisions are vague but its clear that it will be of no benefit whatsoever to small business. Unless you are replacing a 25 year old plus boiler it is highly unlikely that anyone is going to recoup their alleged energy cost saving during the period of the proposed loans. It would appear that unless the interest rate is capped at less than 3% any overall financial advantages to the energy consumer are less than clear.
On the bright side the member for Bracknell did point out the glaring omission of any reference to the Severn Barrage, perhaps the only truly viable alternative energy project on the table. The whole bill is a rushed dogs dinner and Tim ( nice but dim ) was bleating how the government should not take any notice of Vince Cable for once talking common sense for the first time in ages. It should appease the eco-fascists sufficiently even if the government do not foolishly follow the 2008 Climate Change Act to the letter. A simple subsidised boiler scrap programme open to any tradesmen would have been far better, it remains to be seen just how many people are prepared to take out the proposed loans.
The above link was posted on the BBC web page yesterday and BBC North West Tonight duly dispatched one of their key reporters to stand in the rain outside the former ICI chlorine plant at Runcorn. It was well reported on the lunchtime NW news but having waited in anticipation all day it failed to appear on the peak time evening bulletin. After correspondence via facebook asking what was going on and was it some BBC eco-fascist plot to keep the general public in the dark about what's actually going on with the Climate Scam, I got the following reply.
" no conspiracy. Ineos Chlor declined to allow us on to the site and wouldn't put anyone up to be interviewed. Without the main player in the story it woudn't have sustained a full item. We did carry the story as a short news item. "
Perhaps hardly surprising when today it has emerged that the corporates have " done a deal " ( in fart filled air conditioned rooms now that smoking is no longer allowed ) so that they can get an opt out. This probably means that everyone else ( small business and householders ) will have to pay twice as much over the top for their energy.
The coalition perhaps having realised their mistake ( not economic ) have said that they will fully review the policy in 2014, a full year before the election they are bound to lose if they persist with the provisions of the 2008 Climate Change Act. However, by then the damage to our key manufacturing infrastructure will probably be irreversible, no need to worry about defence, we will have nothing worthwhile to defend anymore, perhaps five million at least unemployed by then ?
I can't help speculating that the alleged opt out the collective corporates have got themselves against energy price increases due entirely to the 2008 Climate Change Act is unlawful under EU competition legislation. Its clear that it gives those large companies ( FTSE 350 listed ? ) an unfair advantage over smaller companies. Obama has introduced a similar sounding US scheme to opt out " Fortune 500 " companies from mandatory health insurance for all their employee's, the small companies have to pay it. Its all part of the " Corporate Nazi " ideology festering in trans Atlantic politics, all about cementing a Corporate Multinational Cartel, the virtual corporate ethnic cleansing of all low and middle income people in order to turn everyone into the slaves of the Banks.
It would appear that UKIP and particularly Farage are not a true change of government at all, even if we do come out of the EU with UKIP we will still be run by a set of stock market parasite puppets and the threat to our freedom will remain. Also UKIP don't get my vote if they are backing the eco-fascists and the energy cartel stopping waste incinerators and potentially cheaper electricity !
BBC keeping really quiet about this, but then their entire pension pot is riding on the Climate Scam !
It would appear that the current pension change proposals are simply a tool to outflank what is likley to become a mass opt out of NEST as introduced in 2012. Like everything else the Corporate Nazi puppet government embarks on its all designed to provide a virtual welfare state for the stock market parasite. What a neat little scheme to get low income people to subsidise fat cat eco-fascists like Jon Snow and others on high earnings who currently hold private pensions.
@Guy, good points but perhaps the most ridiculous speed limit is the 40 Mph limit for HGVs on single carriageway A roads, perhaps the only theoretical technical justification for it was a phenomenon know as " Brake Fade ". With modern brake lining materials this problem has been all but eliminated, and many main trunk roads re-engineered to virtual motorway standards anyway. Far more potential danger being a " Leg-Iron " at 40 and risking a head on collision as some idiot in the wrong gear tries to pass you, which probably explains why most competent HGV drivers totally ignore it.
Like private care home provider Southern Cross the NHS overall business plan and therefore its secure long term future is compromised by the PFI contracts, an exact mirror image of Southern Cross's arrangement with its corporate landlords. Unless the NHS can significantly restructure its PFI deals the cost to the taxpayer will be unsustainable, but then perhaps the puppet politicians plan was always to create a welfare state for the stock market parasites ?
As usual perhaps naive Newsnight journalists have totally missed the main point in the main story, namely ( at the at least ) circumstantial evidence of UK state sponsored eco-terrorism. Without undercover police assistance ( said to have arranged and paid for buses for transport to demo ) its probable that the said protest would not have occurred in the first instance. In previous coverage its was said that corporates also had moles embedded and how convenient was it that at the time when the 2008 Climate Change Act was going through parliament to portray mass public opposition to coal fired power stations ?
There are none so blind as those who will not see, its patently obvious that the environmental movement as a whole has been working in the interest of your beloved KKKorporates for at least the past 20 years. We would have had waste incinerators everywhere by now if it were not for eco-fascist Aristotle science, land fill would be down to around perhaps only 10%. Similarly with the Severn Barrage, its been on the drawing board as long as I can remember yet as soon as it looked like getting off the ground the eco-fascists were and still are in their bleating stupidity again. That is not to say that energy privatisation is a good thing, but there was nothing against the government doing it on their own bat if a private bidder had not been forthcoming ?
If there was ever evidence to prove that the whole object of ConDem welfare reform is basically providing a welfare state for the stock market parasites, perhaps today's announcement by Lord Freud that the 26k cap on benefits will be suspended in certain circumstances. It does not take that much imagination to perceive that exceptional circumstances probably means cases where stock market parasites are renting out even not that big houses on 100% housing benefit in London for perhaps over 20k a year. Of course if their benefit claimant tenants were forced to move out they would loose their income, and in addition house prices would fall in the local market. This is a double whammy for Freud's stock market parasite mates, as if they have to sell their house into a falling market they will also have to sell the shares they have borrowed against it ?
After watching to night's obvious BBC eco-fascist report on the slowing down sun spots it is patently obvious that the eco-fascists are desperate to keep their investment scams going. Obviously Susan Watts cannot be taken seriously anymore and it would appear that Kirsty perhaps deliberately gave Greenpeace stooges ( IPCC obviously Greenpeace stooges after my post yesterday about how they had written the IPCC report on renewable energy, ( one sided biased studio debate again) ) an easy ride because she is soon likely to be drawing her BBC pension based on the success of their Climate Scam.
It would appear that everyone including disability charities have totally missed the main point about the remarks by the member for Shipley. which are in fact based on the truth. The truth is that nobody is going to offer a job to a person with any long term health problems when there are totally fit people in competition for said job. The fact is that to remove or refuse ESA from anybody with a proven track record of chronic illness ( or set any means test time limit to ) it is basically a freeze and starve to death sentence.
One thing that your Internet search experiment probably proved was that the eco-fascists have got the searches on " are wind farms efficient " sown up. Perhaps no big surprise given that Google are allegedly one of the 70 KKKorporates pushing for a 30% reduction in CO2 target in the EU ( according to my earlier post #8 ) ?
Perhaps today's vote on circus animals more than amply proves that Westminster politicians care far more about animals than people, but perhaps then they are just representing the inner guilt of a generally uncaring population. If MP's did actually care about people they would have voted against or at least significantly amended the Welfare Reform Bill the other week, but perhaps they just reflect the abject ignorance of the bulk of the UK population after 25 years of eco-fascist propaganda from the likes of the BBC.
The fact is that the corporate fascist don't like the circuses because the are mostly family run businesses, no chance of selling shares for the stock market parasites. Similarly they tend to run old trucks like 1980s ERF's and therefore contribute very little to the corporate cartel, all cash payments so no need to get deep into a bank loan and pay " private tax ". The simple fact is that the corporate fascists want everyone controlled by a FTSE listed company in some way, usually a franchise or some other straightjacket where people can all too easily end up working self employed for less than minimum wage.
I understand that they have got Indian call centres selling this alleged government sponsored " to create green jobs " home insulation scam and are offering loans to do it, paid to the energy company which does it through your energy bills for the next 25 years. If you sell your house the supplement on the extra bill passes on to the new owner, I suspect that some bent property developers will be going round buying houses to insulate and then pass on to idiots at a vast profit.
I hate to use a WW2 analogy but perhaps the current position of mainstream politicians in general as regarding the Climate Scam science screams parallels with the totally fictional inventive mind of double agent Garbo who had Adolf Hitler and almost all the rest of the German high command believing everything he said regarding the invasion of France on D-Day !
This time its the Banks trying to asset strip our economy and render us all virtual slaves to a welfare state for the stock market parasites. China could probably walk in unopposed, but if anyone was to invade it would probably be a Wall Street sponsored US to claim all the money back when we default on the debt.
As for China and renewables its obviously better than nothing for remote rural areas but the Chinese leader guy looked pretty hacked off the other day when he was forced to listen to Cameron blathering on about carbon capture and storage. Furthermore,the combined EU eco-fascists ( and Cameron supporting them ) have almost certainly cost the UK economy the RR engines and the wings for the new fleet of Airbus planes Hong-Kong airlines were expected to order at a trade fair the other week.
David Cameron's perhaps undeniable error in judgment over hiring Coulson perhaps illustrates his failure to listen to advice on subjects like energy policy and particularly green taxes. He was warned in private about Coulson but no less than his own business secretary has publically warned him against carbon taxes etc, and the implications of religiously following the specification of the 2008 Climate Change Act. It doesn't really matter about Coulson himself, but the future of our manufacturing industry is on the line with the Climate Scam, unless action to turn the supertanker is not taken soon the damage could become permanent.
Before you go on about kkkororates according to Ch4 News its probably going to hit the one man bands harder than the big long distance boats. Witteringstall was on blagging his way out of the conclusions, saying it should be administered locally, but that will cost far too much so no chance in reality. The eco-fascists have screwed the coastal fishing industry buy planting wind farms everywhere, most probably in the best fishing grounds as well. Its all a very clever Corporate Ethnic Cleansing plan, like most alleged green policy, increase the financial apartheid between rich and poor.
The only reason the Tories have given the Thameslink deal to the Germans is so their stock market parasite backers can CHANGE MONEY on the deal. Labour are just as bad as it was them who wrote the contract specification but I can't help speculating that the 2008 Climate Change Act significantly handicapped the Derby bid. Making trains is a pretty carbon intensive job so any taxes on carbon are going to significantly increase production costs.
