http://www.economist.com/world/britain/displaystory.cfm? As The North Sea gas supplies have peaked, and we are now relying on foreign imports, why are we know building more gas fired power stations. When the lights start going out across The UK, will the government of the day, decide that global warming isn't actually happening. Perhaps, start building some coal fired power stations, reopen Our coal mines, thus rebuilding our communities and thus provide thousands of proper jobs that actually pay into the tax system, instead of tax funded jobs,that are provided for anyone and everyone, as long as it keeps the unemployment figures down. Just think of the amount of jobs that would be created if one coal mine reopened. Re-introduction of apprenticeships.(Reduction in chavs) From transportation to the humble bacon buttie shop. Everyone would be a winner. I would probably have got away with it, if it wasn't for that 'pesky global warming'
