FORGET about the Partygate, Carriegate and Downing Street BYOB organizations. They are side shows compared to the perfect storm that is about to hit No10, whoever is the Prime Minister.
The explosion of £2,000 a year energy bills would hit home owners, millions of whom are Sun readers, like a savage kick in the tooth.
They will pay for a gamble denounced as “crap” by former Prime Minister David Cameron – and mocked by Boris Johnson until he wins the December 2019 election.
Through no fault of their own, voters face higher taxes, lower mortgages and shockingly high fuel bills.
For some, that means choosing between heating and dining, as well as selling their home at a loss and seeing their business go bankrupt.
Nor was their anger tempered by £200 loans or bailouts with their own money.
They are paying the price for Boris Johnson’s oath last year COP26 A carbon emissions summit where Britain will be one of the first to go to zero.
The issue is set to boil over as Just Stop oil operators threaten to block refineries, cripple tanker deliveries and inflict pain on motorists.
In a brief message to proponents of goofy eyes, Extinction Rebellion co-founder Roger Hallam said: “It is your absolute responsibility to take action against this massive unjust and evil act of obscenity. most in human history.
“What else can we describe for COP26, which deliberately decided to condemn the next generation to an uninhabitable world. A world of starvation, rape and carnage”.
During the last performance, Police Woke would fold their arms and offer them hot chocolate and blankets. It’s like designing a mini vacation,” Hallam added.
As with so many recent disasters, this crisis was entirely avoidable. Thanks to its cult obsession with green, Britain is paying more for expensive imported fuel than tapping an ocean of fragile gas and untapped North Sea oil.
Without using our own cheap energy, we are being manipulated like puppets by the Kremlin’s malicious tyrant Vladimir Putin. Boris has tumbled considerably in the power supply, but to be fair, so has every prime minister from Tony Blair onwards.
They all ignored warnings that the lights would go out without reliable new power plants, especially nuclear. To save some gas, they removed the gas storage tanks, leaving us with just three days’ supply in case of an emergency.
So we rely on windmills, which are calculated over many consecutive days, and on solar where the sun is not shining. Meanwhile, billions of taxpayers’ cash was poured into green subsidies for wealthy landowners, which ended up being a hidden tax on domestic fuel bills.
The Prime Minister’s wife, the green goddess Carrie Johnson, is feeling the heat, perhaps unfairly. Her obsession is animals and gay rights, not gas and electricity.
The real influencers are BoJo’s father, Stanley, and the green fanatical billionaire Zac Goldsmith, a minister in the House of Lords. Along with Carrie, who used to work for Goldsmith, they became known as the Zac Pack.
There is a strong case for renewable energy, already available with commercially viable new technology.
But before we devour Hallam’s dire images of the global crisis, let’s recall the equally hyped “worst-case” Covid fantasies from the Sage scientists.
“Bonking” Professor Neil Ferguson terrifies us with his silly predictions of half a million deaths.
Critics fear a similar panic over climate change will destroy the global economy – with consequences for all of us.
Now, 70 million UK citizens are getting a glimpse of that future as they plunge into the worst cost of living crisis in half a century.
But this wasn’t the 1970s. Back then we were used to the constant industrial strife, with wages chasing prices. Inflation is a fact of life.
Today, we’re used to stability, cheap food and fuel, low mortgages and full employment – it seems like a fool’s paradise now.
“Things will be difficult,” Business Minister Kwasi Kwarteng, who banned jailbreaking in 2019, admitted yesterday.
“Hard” doesn’t quite cut it down. Once the electricity and gas bills start to hit the doormat, the green fan will actually appear.
Hunting for political witches
LABOUR’s Sir Keir Starmer never fails to exploit his role as foreign prosecutor and human rights activist.
So Boris Johnson is right in recalling how he prosecuted two dozen innocent Sun journalists for conspiracy to conceal – while not prosecuting Jimmy Savile.
All 24 journalists have been vindicated following the most costly police operation in Scotland Yard history – a humiliating defeat before the Crown Prosecution Service.
Many believe that Starmer’s knighthood and safe Labor seat are rewards for what is seen as a political witch hunt.
If his crackdown is successful, the freedom of the Press to expose the wrongdoing of those in power will be abandoned.
