Brexit costs Money (Squared)

European Union demands Britain pay its fair share of all projects signed up to during her membership of the European Union.

That is all projects, useful, practical, helpful: or not; over four decades of waste.

Even the real pie-in-the-sky projects, dreamed up by people who fell in love with an idea so ridiculous that it should have been rubbish-bin-bound before being even printed.

Let me lead you down the path of sheer, utter stupidity; which, amongst others, had cost British taxpayers just over a million quid before the Government came to their belated senses and cancelled the whole stupid, outrageous, silly shebang: and then, the lunatics having taken over the Asylum, are again considering spending lots of our cash on, well, absolutely nothing workable at all! As well as the sheer lunacy of the Climate Change Act, which will cost us, here in the UK, billions of pounds to achieve: absolutely nothing!

The EU wanted to show super-willing, with all the garbage about either ‘Global Warming/Climate Change  (GW/CC) due to man-made Carbon Dioxide (CO2), which they claim too much of which is changing the weather, melting the ice-caps and flooding Pacific Islands. Lots of people have written lots of stuff about GW/CC, so I won’t bore you with the details. When I state that the first bloke to run with this lunacy was an American POLITICIAN named Al Gore, which should really have warned a lot of sensible people that a whole heap of cash was heading, well, Gore-wards! Suffice to say that ten thousand scientists have bodged up twenty million reports, graphs and papers, all telling us we’re all doomed: and people like me, only much, much smarter; are calmly saying “Hang about a bit, if you are right, we should be seeing this, or that. Instead, folks, we are seeing, well, not a lot of change at all.”

So the Europeans heard of the ‘Gold Standard’ of GW/CC strategies, which is Carbon Capture & Storage. This scheme, which basically says any Carbon Dioxide which comes from, say, a coal-fired Thermal Power Station should, I repeat SHOULD, be stored safely, preferably underground, and not released into the atmosphere, where it would be allegedly melting all that ice at the North Pole, and possibly the South Pole as well. So they spent £520 million quid on the planning and various detailed projects, and came up with Sweet **ck All; because they had got their sums wrong, and the (hoped for) technology just would not work, or be efficient, or not run thirty times over budget!

The British side of things was to set up a competition to design, build and operate a C.C.& S system, worth One Billion quid; but then they cancelled it, as I wrote, because it just would not work, and then some clown got the ear of yet another POLITICIAN, and now Claire Perry thinks she can SAVE THE WORLD from, well, not very much at all!

    Perhaps some now long-gone civilisation used CC&S to produce all the subterranean oil & gas we extract today?
    As even some of the sheep are becoming suspicious about GW/CC nowadays, I’m expecting the next world-wide scam will be promoted soon.
    I’m guessing: an asteroid on a collision course with Earth, or the Yellowstone volcano or a newly fabricated version of Isis. Whatever our masters pick, inevitably it will increase taxes.

    It used to be that only Death and Taxes were inevitable.

    Now we have Stupidity and Deviousness too.

    They take us for fools. Perhaps rightly so.

      No, they know we are not fools. That’s why they refuse us referism and recall. Can you imagine this law being passed if the people had a say in it? Can you imagine a politician using the defence budget to buy votes if he could simply be sacked? Councillors troughing away on six figure salaries while bin collections drop to twice a month?

      Of course they wouldn’t. This is why they keep the people deliberately excluded from the system.

    The real reason Muammar al-Qaddafi was murdered,, it was because he was going to GREEN the SAHARA, a friend of mine worked in Libya on the water pipelines they were using enormous pipes to transport water to various points. There are huge amounts of water under the Sahara and imagine the amount of CO2 it would take from and the Oxygen it would return to the atmosphere, greening the Sahara, Al Gore’s worst nightmare. According to Noah climate change is eternal.

    Doesn’t it make one a tad suspicious that while Merkl the Iron reichkanzler tells Britain “you must go green” meanwhile in the Fatherland they’re building 23 brand spanking new coal fired generating plant and burning the filthiest ‘coal’ known [apart from peat] – lignite. [!!]

    Britain, well the UK political class/establishment has bought into the green bollox so thoroughly we’ve all been marched, forced onto the cattle wagon trains and hurtling on to financial oblivion fashioned and facilitated by the 2008 climate change act.

    UK MPs when was the final surrender signed in Lisbon [07], back to Maastricht[1992], the 2008 climate change act………….or, was it in Jan 1973, an absolute and utter capitulation – I tend to the latter.

    My question when it comes to this particular project is where did all this money go to? They spent half a billion quid on achieving nothing whatsoever so what did they spend it on? It couldn’t be that people with the right connections were just invited to stuff as much money as they could into their own pockets could it?

    I also find it interesting that when it comes to “Taking action on climate change”, the PTB are only ever interested in schemes that are ridiculously expensive and that don’t work. Nuclear power is a really obvious solution to the alleged problem. Combine nuclear power with electrified railways and we are on our way at a fraction of the cost. If we are going to start spending silly money then high speed trains that could compete with air travel is an obvious way to go. During the summer I cycle to work. How much would it cost to build cycle paths that are actually practical to use and to maintain them properly? How much would it cost to abolish VAT on cycles and cycling equipment, compared to spending trillions on windmills that make no difference whatsoever?
