Looks like Nadine Dorries MP has a new project! Not exactly permalinked here. But here it is:
When we closed down our mines, forever, Germany kept theirs ticking over, so that if necessary they could be 're-booted' in the future. Which they have been.
Makes sense as technology has provided us with the ability to extract all the harmful chemicals from coal to provide a clean burn.
France went nuclear. Three quarters of France’s energy is met by nuclear power.
So, just thinking along the lines of economic competitiveness, does being almost totally dependent on fuel imports put us at a disadvantage? Do you think that just maybe someone in this place may suggest it's time to end the culture of short termism?
I wrote a blog a while ago about food security. The same principle applies to fuel surely?
That's quite a project. Putting back what her heroine Maggie Thatcher destroyed. Of course at this point in her life Nads had long since abandoned hubby one and was oblivious, off big game hunting for hubby number two in darkest Africa.
Back in Liverpool the people knew what they had to do. Perhaps it is through missing this, and Halewood disputes, and all the Thatcher damage, and the rich new hubby and all, that Nads became a Tory in the first place?
So, Nadine must have got over her recent disappointment? Sadly no. The Clean Coal/Nuclear post ends with:
A lady has written in one of the cards “Sometime in the future, our great grandchildren will look back on what we did, in the same way we look back on the appalling practice of slavery, and try to make sense of what appeared on the outside to be a progressive and civilised society, but which was Tories all the while butchering our Coal Industry”.
Well, something a bit like that anyway. Slightly adapted to keep Nads on topic.
