A 2010 Election Issue Dropped In 2015.

What, Of Much, Is Not Being Said By Politicians.

(Guest post from a friend.)

The three big issues being openly fought over as we close in on the voting are the NHS, Immigration and the Economy. Suddenly and amazingly, we find that the main parties really care about these things, have an answer to them and are desperate to assume the reins of power so that they can get on with the task of dealing with them.

What we all know is that these complex issues will slide down the agenda somewhat when the winning group sees five years in front of them. Much will be run as always by Whitehall and the EU and common sense reactions to events. Situation normal. What will rise in importance is the prospect of an in/out EU referendum. The Scottish Issue will rumble on.

But the biggest issue that will affect the future of us all in the western democracies - by which I mean the USA and the EU - has not figured in the pre-election campaigning at all. The words that no one dare mention are Climate Change.

It used to be referred to as Global Warming and was coupled with the words - man made. This is the most dangerous thing our western societies are facing. The issue is on a track to destroy us unless we act to change things now in motion. And we can do so - we can make the change....but no politician will even talk about it!

Let me divert from this danger for a moment to reassure you that the world is not warming up. It has spent the last 17 years cooling down and no doubt it will bob up and down over the next centuries as it always has. Man has not nor can affect this - either one way or the other. It’s a long and frightening story that tells of how man-made global warming got onto the agenda but we are at last catching up with the gigantic fraud that has been perpetrated on the western democracies. Here are just a few facts that are now becoming clear-

Polar bears are not endangered - the Inuit are licensed to kill them to keep numbers as sensible. We have all seen the picture of the poor polar bear, starving and adrift on a tiny block of ice, about to be lost. The photo was taken by a lady tourist from a tour boat and if you print the full frame, you can see the mainland a very short swim away. 

The Arctic ice melts every year and freezes every year. Always has - always will. Greenland has that name because it once was a great place to grow crops. The Antarctic is growing in ice cover. Al Gore told us the seas will rise twenty feet. Well, the Moon does that to them twice a day but the mean level change over the last few hundred years is measured in millimetres and is slower now than in ages past.

Under pressure from the eco-terrorists, the US Government has re-classified Carbon Dioxide as a pollutant. The atmosphere has less than 4% CO2 and without this as a practical minimum, all life on earth would come to an end. The bit that man contributes is about 1 in 70,000 parts. The so called greenhouse gases are 95% natural - nothing to do with your car or cow.

You have been told that the science is settled - there is a "consensus". You are being lied to. The UN sub-group charged with assessing the issue - the IPCC - blatantly ignores its charter to fairly examine and report. It has ended up as a lobbying club for a tiny faction of self- interested political activists. all on a rich gravy train of research funds and trips around the world to talk to each other. The famous 4 yearly reports are written and edited by just over 50 people. Only 4 are independent. The rest all know each other or actually work together in Universities such as East Anglia( the data cheats), the Goddard off-shoot of NASA or the Henley Centre, part of the UK Met Office. One chap even wrote 19 papers himself! The so called "consensus" is infinitesimal and almost without exception, are all paid to sing the song. Their chairman is a railway engineer and they include experts on Mexican frogs and motorcycle safety helmets in their number. The foxes are in charge of the chicken shed. Their hero Al Gore aligned himself with Goldman Sachs to trade in carbon futures (you may well ask) to make over a billion dollars. If you dare, read an expose by C Booker "The Real Global Warming Disaster" written in 2008. Things are worse now - you will laugh in unbelief, and then cry with fury at how we have all been made fools of!

So if the truth is now coming forward - and it is, then what is this Disaster?

The seeds of this disaster were sown in the height of the great global warming panic that took off in the 1990's, fired by Gore and others and the Kyoto and Rio IPCC jamborees. We were told that our use of fossil fuels was upsetting the world's delicate balance and it was already too late to stop the warming - we might just be able to slow it down and maybe survive! I am now going to give you another list - a very short collection of some of the things that are now in place and are set to destroy the western economies.

The Climate Change industry, fronted by the IPCC, set advisory limits on the amount of temperature growth that they thought the world climate could cope with, consistent with maintaining the style of society we value today. This is not a calculation but more a political statement. For example, they ignored the fact that the world has experienced warm periods before and that these had resulted in accelerated improvements in human progress. We know that there are net gains to be had from a warming period - better crops, less deaths due to weather, economies in fuel use - even growing wine in more northerly climes! These are ignored as sending out the wrong message.

To affect this control on temperature growth, the world at large will have to restrict its use of carbon based fuels. This is actually more than a halt in CO2 output growth - we have to step back to a level that we have already surpassed. The Kyoto/Rio world conferences were convened to agree the targets and then allocate the responsibilities for action - and to send away the nation's leaders to implement them. The proposal for all to share this task didn't even reach the agenda for discussion. The growing economies of China, India, South America etc were practically and politically locked into growth mode, desperately trying to catch up with the establish economies of the G8/democratic western nations. The third world did not even have anything much to give up. They were there to ask for help in increasing their utilisation of energy.

So everyone looked to the US and EU to solve the problem - after all, they had churned out CO2 for generations. Gordon Brown stepped forward and undertook to reduce the UK carbon output by 60% by 2050 with an interim target to be met by 2020. The US had finally joined the game and also tabled the number 60%. However, this was not backed up with any political intent - we had to wait for Obama to make his move to be the green president. The EU target was more modest. Frankly, these numbers were only relevant in judging who was the most idiotic. 

The game was still in play. Ed Miliband as Brown's "climate minister" suddenly upped the UK number to 80%. This meant that we were signing up to using less carbon producing energy than we did just as the industrial revolution was taking hold. In the US this equated with the time of Abraham Lincoln. It was seriously suggested in the US that protesting against climate change legislation should be a jail-able offence! 

Here in the UK, we moved ahead of the world and became the only nation to lock our Climate Change intents onto the statute book. Yes, we have committed all future parliaments to meeting our obligations as a matter of law - not parliamentary debate! When this came to the House for the vote, only one of the nations’ MPs passed through the NO lobby - every other MP voted for it. There must have been at least a few MPs that had taken the trouble to study what they were doing but only one had the courage to stand up and be counted. We know for a fact that George Osborn is not a climate change enthusiast but he slid through along with all the other sheep. 

So we are committed to closing all our existing coal fired power stations - the process has begun and already we are being warned about power cuts next winter. We will be allowed to build carbon capture coal burning generation plants but the technology does not exist and we already know that it would double the cost of our electricity if we could do it - at least double it! We are now well into a commitment to build enough wind turbine generators to meet a EU target of over a third of our requirements for electricity. We will have to build 2 a day - everyday until 2020 - and we manage one a week at the moment. 

If we manage to get these built, then the actual usable wind produced energy will be about 15% of the notional capacity. It’s a bit like the man in the Ferrari saying he will get from London to York in under an hour - because his car can go 202mph. The reality. He would be lucky to reach Hornsey Rise on an average day. When we have finished these thousands of turbines, they will need back up for calm days and they all could be met by one modern coal fired power station - at 5% of the cost. , by

Additionally, we will have to convert all - yes all - of our farm crop production from food to Bio-fuel production. Poor old Germany fell for the game years before we did. They have a program of closing down all their nuclear power capacity and have covered their land with more turbines than any other nation. By the mid-century, they will have had hundreds of billions of Euros sucked out of their economy and the effect of this has been calculated to delay the onset of a global warming tipping point by less than one day by the end of the century. Meanwhile, China builds two coal fired power stations a week so we are still going deeper into carbon output. 

In the US, the Republicans will not ratify their Climate Change targets into law. The EU, with the UK marching at its head, has already done so. The rest of the world will not do anything except fall about laughing. Did you vote for this? Did you hear any debate about what we have done? The only hope I see is if the thinking media (and I do not count the BBC in this list) wakes up and starts to give courage to a few politicians. But much of the damage has already been done. Next year, the lights may start to go out.

Lies And Deep Seated Nastiness.

The Real Red In Tooth And Claw Ed.

"When shall we three meet again, in thunder, lightening or in rain?"

Here is a truthful utternace from a plotical dominatrix. As much as I despise this porridge guzzler socialist I do adore the unintended consequences the socialist meddling clumsily with devolution, to wreck Tory seats in Scotland, has brought about. That Red Ed, Union puppet oaf, had the bare faced ability to lie, clearly and unequivocally, was trotted out over the weekend.

The ghastly, typical Marxist stance that any of their utterances are somehow sacrosanct and given, is loathsome. None more so when they lie constantly and blithely present themselves in complete denial as to their gross negligence of the Nation and in particular the NHS avoidable deaths.

As Labour struggle to come up with more ridiculous giveaways to seduce the gullible fools in the Jeremy Kyle like mass population of council estates, the lies come thick and fast. The firm economic leadership spoken of is regarded as fact, by its mere statement, by the bought and paid for, EUSSR propaganda machinery. The BBC and BSKYB both in hock to Brussels/Berlin.

We can but hope that, as people enter the polling booth, this one opportunity to smack hard the Establishment bent on total dominance and control over their existence, will hit home and the LibLabCon cosy comfort zone blown away. 

That Labour are already drawing up their agreements with the SNP is a given. Even their stupidity has some measure of understanding of the inevitability of a repeat 2010 result. So to ignore a potential shoe in, into that desperate need for power and control, would be negligent of those so desperate to have Milibad back in Government.

This ugly mug, for one. Even he has told Sturgeon Labour belongs to him. Here's another fissure in a satanic possible outcome of the election. If we factor that into the nightmare of an already primed alliance of the socialist danger mice, Sturgeon and Milibad, the fear factor becomes unbearable!

Even though I have little faith in Cameron, I see him as a far superior human being, in the character stakes. A Tory led continuation of the stewardship of the last, almost miraculous, five years would be preferable to the Pol Pot tendencies of the left and the folk discussed. 

If we were to then add Nigel Farage as an MP, rousting the pompous superiority of Parliament, pointing out when EUSSR doctrine is peddled as UK law making and speaking for a majority of those who care deeply about the UK, what's not to like? Not long to wait. I'm still expecting UKIP to confound the chatterati but I am a "half full" person, deep down. Often disappointed!

Labour, SNP written, Budget,May, 2015.

Some Likely New Tax Rises, Post Election.

I am a great fan of the Coalition's and George Osborne's five years of stewardship of the economy. Despite Labours' ignorant, dogma led, irresponsible, social engineering at huge cost, some semblance of fairness to all and a reasonable, miraculous,  recovery, against all odds. 

My only regret is their Leaders, Clegg and Cameron, have been so awful in implementing other policies. Particularly the mass migration issue and the burden of this impact on our society and infrastructure. All driven from Brussels to dilute Nationalism. Hasn't worked in Scotland, it seems.

So to the cost of yet more social engineering and theft, from the hardworking, savers and pensioners, necessary to fund the next round of Labour/SNP vote purchasing with your money. A task likely to hurt beyond measure if the major corporations follow the possible fleeing of HSBC and the collapse of capital the consequence of such flight. We'll then see how false and stupid Milibad's attacks on "big, bad" business and banks is meaningless as employment soars once more under Marxist politics of envy and dictatorship.

So, brace for council tax bands reassessed at present day values and subsequent rises in line with house price inflation. Over five years of Labour council tax will overtake mortgage monthly payments.

Then fuel duty escalator back, under that deceitful guise of "saving the planet". Overnight everything we buy, moved by road, will go up. On top of any other government tax increases on the old group of targeted pleasures and "luxury" goods.

Beer, wine and spirits will be giver retrospective duty rises circa 25%. Just you see. Add the extra burden of transport fuel increases, expect 30% or more.

New terminology will be introduced to hide other rises. An NHS levy on National Insurance for example. Also energy price freezes will be "offset" by increased "green taxes", so loved by socialists pretending to be noble and altruistic as they destroy lives and savings.

Remember Prescott's idea to tax homes with hard won beautiful gardens and views across the countryside?  Or this, likely to be resurrected raid, with the probable tax take benefit for government, more Prescott nastiness.

Where else will they go to plunder the Nation? Air travel passenger tax for sure. Gatwick will be expanded massively, to ruin swathes of West Sussex and the perceived luxury London commuter belt. 

That's just a taster. VAT may well be expanded but Labour will wring their hands and tell us they had no choice under EUSSR edict to break manifesto "pledges". A tactic already in place but kept secret.

I'm sure there is much, much more pain than my small effort can determine. Despite a cloak of "soaking the rich", as ever, the politics of envy always hit the already poor most. Also remember the bribes and blackmail funds to be found to keep the SNP sweet and Milibad in his unelected, Cameron style, squat in Downing Street.

As I watch Milibad's growing, smug, Kinnock like confidence I am at a loss how still Cameron and the Tories are sleepwalking to defeat. As I posted yesterday, there is no fire or passion. No belief or solid, hard hitting passion to demolish Labours' lies, incompetence and huge tax rises we can expect.

One glimmer of hope this morning. A Survation poll shows a hint of my own suspicions. Labour dip to 29% as their support, in the light of higher taxation fears, more mass immigration and a return to the years of Snotpicker economics, begin to enter people's consciousness. That, allied to the fact traditional Labour and Tory voters have an alternative, less partisan, option in UKIP.

The same Survation poll gives UKIP 18%. Likely reflecting the desertion from Labour as well as Tory voters. Watch out for Labour starting to counter vote Labour get SNP attacks with vote UKIP get Tory. Despite the reality that if 18% vote UKIP they will, eventually, if not until 2020, get UKIP!

Have a wonderful weekend.
