Monbiot Laments Efforts To Keep The UK Economy From Collapsing

Rejoice, the boom is back! After a drought of investment, last week BP announced that it was spending £3bn to redevelop fields in the deep waters to the west of Shetland. The government was delighted: this shows, it says, that its policies are working. It promised to “continue to work alongside oil and gas companies to support growth and jobs in the UK”.

Great. But hold on a minute, didn’t the government tell us, just two days before, that its priority is to decarbonise the economy? Well it depends who you’re talking to, and at which point in the cycle of crashing contradictions you catch them.

    Like most Graudian writers he was born into money and does not have to worry about getting a proper job or managing on a low weekly wage.

    Effin clown, Moanbot – he’d have Britain back in the dark ages but then the UK government really doesn’t need Georgie’s help, they’re getting there all by themselves………..FFS.

    This is encouraging. I’ve always been counting on the fact that money talks and BS walks would be the ultimate demise of AGW and it’s bastard child the “green” economy.
