Time to go it alone?

Wednesday, 27 February 2013

While our hard-working Prime Minister David Cameron is beavering away in India selling off more of the UK family silver – all euphemistically called ‘exports’ or ‘inward investments’, our electricity supply is about to be substantially reduced or even cut off at times. His time could be better spent at home.
This coalition government are systematically bringing our nation to its knees and I, for one, would like to know why.
Our power stations are being closed only “on orders from Brussels” and through our lack of investment in some new power stations.  We will soon be required to rely even more heavily on imported gas supplies just to keep the lights on, gas for which we can be blackmailed over the price, and will be.
We could invest in our own power stations if we stopped sending £54m per day to Brussels. We should leave the EU today.
