Capitalists@work have done sterling service over the past years in warning of our impending energy crisis. Whilst Labour have spent twelve years throwing a trillion at lunatic social engineering experiments and Harmanesque economic inefficieny measures, they have utterly neglected our energy security. An indictably irresponsible away-with-the-fairies belief that wind power or solar panels will magically replace multi-megawatt coal fired power stations pervades Labour thinking; when the lights start to go out all over Britain, I want to see Labour ministers facing criminal prosecution for malfeasance in public office.
And the Economist today suggests the lights may start going out soomer rather than later. Just study the three simple graphs they print, and ask yourself if we can afford this corrupt cabal of lunatics and zealots in power for a single day longer.
