Leading From the Rear
After five years of the greenest government ever and six months of Tin-Pot Tessie, Britain remains a world leader in renewable energy, provided one does not count twenty-three of the twenty-seven Euro-wog nations. Britain generates a staggering eight per cent of its energy from renewable sources, but remains on schedule to achieve its EU target because the evil bureaucrats in Brussels condescended to set the bar low enough. Although more than a fifth of the country's electricity comes from renewable sources, there has been little progress in reducing the greenhouse gases produced by cars and home heating, partly because the Government does not wish to annoy the Rothermere Daily Stürmer by driving down house prices and partly because the Department for Transport has the brilliant Chris Graybeing at the wheel. The cheerful trashing of regulations and bashing of the solar industry by the Bullingdon Club and their little orange enablers, followed by the likely tearing-up of any remaining commitments once the EU cuts loose of the mainland in two years' time, will doubtless provide a friendly climate for the American frackers, Middle Eastern oil barons and Chinese hawkers of blanched radioactive pachyderms who represent our new and glorious independence.
