Since 1997 the Labour government has introduced some 3,000 new laws, most of which seem to be designed to control how we think, speak and act.
Not content with that, leaflets and pamphlets are also placed before us with a view to 'involving' us in their latest 'idea'. The most recent being a pamphlet on saving CO2 emissions and suggests ways this can be accomplished; by, for example, walking to work, putting less water in the kettle and having showers instead of baths.
Ed Miliband, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, is quoted as saying "I think it is essential we engage the British public in what we are trying to sign up to and what we are discussing in the coming months......."
It is a great pity that Ed Miliband and his colleagues did not bother to 'engage the British public' when they started out on this idiotic and foolhardy idea of combating climate change, or global warming. Oops, sorry, just realised they couldn't as it was dictated by our masters in Brussels! Oh and Ed - what is the cost of 20,000 pamphlets issued to every library, Citizens Advice Bureau, health centre and school? And the CO2 emissions as a result of printing and delivering them?
Far be it that one should think that this debate about climate change/global warming and the 'catastrophic' effects are but an attempt to divert the public's attention from the Labour government's mishandling of the economy, coupled with the dismantling of our democracy.
