Well, we’re off. As you read this we’ll have already passed through customs and be well on our way across the water into the US of A. This is a timed post, written on Wednesday night. and I’ll report any misadventures and observations later, after a very large drink.
What I’d like to say is this; having seen the UK news over the last few days I just want to say I truly feel sorry for the poor buggers trying to earn a crust at Port Talbot Steel Plant, only to find their livelihoods are being snatched away. The trouble is, when somewhere as big as Port Talbot goes tits up, everywhere else in the area suffers. In fact, every trader involved in the supply area finds their cashflow developing a nasty stutter. For some it will mean the breakup of everything they gave their lives to building. Homes. Families. Social networks. Through no fault of their own.
However, even if you’re unaffected, just remember this; if you are a UK voter and supported the Conservatives, Labour, Liberal Democrats, especially the Greens or any of the pro-EU political parties in any of the last four general elections, you voted for the very carbon taxes that just cost all those Welsh steelworkers and quite a few service employees their jobs. As they say in the valleys; Proud of it are you?
Part of my genetic heritage comes from those parts, so I do feel a little sympathy for the people who will probably have to cancel their 2017 Christmases . All because of a lie. A veritable crime of the century. The one perpetrated from the highest levels of the United Nations, whose name is carbon taxation and whose stated cause is ‘Wealth redistribution’. That old fraudster ‘Man Made Global Warming’. Whose wealth do these corrupt bastards want to redistribute? Yours. Mine. Everyone’s. Right into the pockets of the politicians and their financial sponsors.
Now repeat after me; “Carbon taxation is economic suicide.” Got that? Now don’t forget it. Don’t vote for anyone who will support it. Your job may depend upon it.
