Labour and Conservative parties are promising just about anything
in the run up to the General Election to get elected. But
have either party said anything genuine about tackling climate
chaos? Apparently so - see the proposed Green Bill
and Sir Nicholas Stern's
as far as we know. Promises, Promises. Yet we are
falling well behind with the targets we agreed during the Kyoto
and other Agenda 21 talks.
Kruschandl says : "It's Time for Change"
that we are the worst country by any means, but when talk goes to
starting up another Nuclear drive, it is clear the politicians are
desperate. The worst offender of all is the Bush
administrations and its love affair with oil. Unfortunately, I'm
not a politician, I'm an engineer - otherwise I'd be
campaigning. But who would have a chap in their party, when
he's likely to support unpopular party policies.
do you think politicians need to resort to stealth taxes?
issues involve stealth taxes. Take Road Tax. This tax
was introduced to pay for road building, yet only about 5%
actually goes to build roads. The rest is diverted to
support other high spend areas, such as protecting crooked
need honest taxes for honest purposes? We need an efficient
central government and an efficient local government. We do
not need dishonest MP's and local officials milking the system for
their own purposes, building empires and wasting roughly £10
million a year defending rigged decision making. We need
affordable housing, decent schools, and sensibly priced services.
At the moment council tax is crippling most folk. Not to
mention the fact is is a grossly unfair tax aimed only at people
who are sitting targets. It is the people who work the
hardest, who are bailing our inept government, needlessly.
the Conservatives under David Cameron, deliver the goods?
we doubt it. But he is new blood and saying all the rights
things at the moment. The Conservatives have not had the
opportunity to show their mettle. If they are elected to
power, we should like to be able to report positively.
Unfortunately, we live in a democracy of dictators - where civil
servants rule! Most politicians are mouthpieces of
convenience. Why? That is how to get elected. If a
politician were to tell it straight they wouldn't stand a chance!
