The Conservative Party seem so concerned about UKIP that they are gradually morphing into them. So the Conservatives increasingly it seems want to get out of Europe and now they are going to ban wind turbines on land. But fracking it seems is fine, with trespass laws to be relaxed to allow companies to explore on other people's land.
So in the
brave new Conservative world, Britain will be a small isolated country
in northern Europe with even less influence than it has now. We will
though be free to burn more fossil fuels and choke our collective selves
to death on pollution.
The population will continue to age but we
will not be able to afford the services, such as health and social care,
to look after them because the Conservatives will have stopped the
vital flow of young migrant labour into the country. This will also
decimate the prosperous higher education sector.
used to be a serious party, Margaret Thatcher was one of the first
mainstream politicians to see the importance of the green agenda - what a
sad rump they have left today - drawn ever further rightward, their only ambition being the pursuit of
power for powers sake.
