Why Europe is to blame for the UK’s acute energy policy failures

Britain is well down the road to chronic electric power shortages, thanks mainly to hopelessly unrealistic EU energy policies.

  2. No, the UK is to blame for allowing it’s sovereignty to be lost without so much as a whimper.

    The problem was and still is that a prime minister with a solid majority in the House can change the British Constitution as easily as her/his underwear without the public being aware of the fact.

    The reason is that hardly anyone knows what is left of the constitution.

    Ironic that Britain enacted for Canada such a robust basis for life next to the lion’s den, but is unable to protect itself from the few hyenas that infest Westminster.

    I heard on the news that the E.U. was out to ban the electric kettle… It’s a very bad idea to get between a Brit and their tea… last time this happened the revolution led to the U.S.A. 😉

    Kettles, toasters, hand-dryers, internet routers, blah blah…the EU wants them all regulated.

    Re the kettles: if they reduce the power, just run two at once – or three, four, etc – to be awkward 😉

    Now Brexit has come through, Britain will be setting its own so-called climate policies.

    UK politicians now know that if the country can’t generate enough power to ‘keep the lights on’ the blame will fall squarely on them. The ‘EU made us do it’ excuse has gone.
