While many people welcomed the relaxations to Government 'Net Zero' policy announced by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak last week, others were quick to point out that it would be illegal to abandon commitments to reducing carbon emissions as they are enshrined in laws passed by the previous administrations of Gordon Bown (Labour) and Teresa May (Conserevative.) The Green Blob gleefully seized on this and attempted to undermine Sunak's small step towards common sense by claiming his initiative was doomed. Others said it was merely a political ploy aimed at halting the Conservatives decline ahead of some significant by - elections. But while Rishi Sunak has no been particularly effective as Prime Minister, having inherited a mess the even Disraeli, Lloyd George and Churchill rolled into one could not have handled, but he did not get to be a billionaire without knowing how to pull a stroke or two. It now emerges the government is planning to stay on the right side of strict carbon emission laws by cashing in on Britain’s projected “over performance” over the next decade.
The Prime Minister and Claire Coutinho, the Net Zero Secretary, are believed to have concluded that the Government will be able to capitalise on an expected surplus in emissions in order to push back deadlines such as the 2030 ban on selling petrol cars and the mandatory replacement of gas boilers with ineffective heat pumps, without breaching strict carbon budgets.
It is rumoured that the government's internal estimates show the proposed changes, including pushing back the 2030 ban on ICE cars by five years and weakening the phase-out of gas boilers, were projected to increase emissions by only five per cent.
However, the Government is likely to come under fire from environmental groups and the Climate Change Committee
(CCC), the statutory watchdog set up to ensure the nation achieves the unachievable targets set by previous governments.
Everything about Sunak’s supposed relaxation of Net Zero targets may seem like a typical cynical political ploy and for this reason mainstream media commentators are dismissing it as another Conservative bait and switch intended to voters into thinking the Conservatives are not as extreme or authoritarian as Labour before going ahead and doing the exact same thing as their opposition would because both parties are controlled by the dark forces of globalism. Another idea put forward is that Sunak wants to maintain the illusion that Team A and Team B are not exactly the same thing and that voters have a “choice”.
That great American George Carlin often spoke about ‘The illusion of choice’ more than 30 years ago. Governments are trapped between the supra-national globalists, and the woke blob of the civil service, academics and 'The Science.'.
As globalist policies formulated by unelected bureaucrats in unrepresentative global agencies legislate for more health tyranny, more climate change authoritarianism and more surveillance and control of our daily lives, along with many alt_news creators, fear
there is no non-violent way out of this situation and with the G20 group of leading economic powers recently agreeing to implement Digital ID’s and Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) one has the feeling that the net is closing on our freedoms. The hoax pandemic showed how our physical sovereignty, right to free speech and freedom of the road can be withdrawn. Control our money and it’s game over. We will all be slaves to a global, technocratic government.
Many would argue both those things are already here and what is coming down the road is their expansion and refinement, but I don't believe we have yet gone too far to turn things around.
We already have biometric passports in a country like the UK which prides itself on its social liberalism, and in which almost everyone travels abroad. The US long had an entry permission system (ESTA) as has Australia. The EU is implementing a similar digital border and permission system next year and the UK is in the process of developing a similar policy. In time every 'free' country will follow suit. So we are already nicely put in holding pens where we can roam freely, for now.
As for control of the way money flows, most transactions are by card or
bank transfer. And those transactions are already recorded on databases and carefully monitored.
Try doing anything substantial out of the ordinary and you can be sure one of the banks invond demand information on what it is for.
There are some slightly more optimistic notes in this weeks news however.This, from the United States, is the one that gives me most cause for hope.
An important section of the report reads:
“Today, the House Financial Services Committee passed eleven pieces of legislation out of Committee that strengthen national security, protects Americans’ financial privacy, and prevents the issuance of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) without explicit authorization from Congress.“
Perhaps in the US, banks ask less questions, or if they
do ask questions more closely related to criminal activity or to the prevention of
money laundering, and perhaps, based on what I know of their constitution, US banks have a legal
duty and right to refuse to disclose information to the state. The
Patriot Act which authorized non specific trawling of personal
communications was ruled unconstitutional in parts by several federal
courts. We need the supreme courts in Uk, Germany, France, Italy and other European nations to start upholding the constitutions of their states because recently the adjudicative panels, packed with political appointees, have been supine as globalist technocrats have freely trampled on the constitutional rights of citizens
