You left out the option, BDU, of reducing our gas consumption by 40% by insulating our homes and going over to a renewable electricity powered heat pump heating system. A further reduction could be engineered by changing industrial heating to electric power. Do you think the UK politicians can sell...

Finding a more credible bandwagon is certainly a reasonable move.

If 1/1700 are infected is just wrong to say you have to meet 1700 to risk catching it. You are absolutely correct. And you presume this was done out of ignorance, rather than to specifically mislead? Statistics lie and liars use statistics and all that. No, I'm specifically saying it wasn't said ou...

We could stop folks freezing by insulating our homes properly and applying minimal heating.

In Europe, an armed terrorist in a train killed no one, when confronted by folks forged in a non-sheeple environment. Just saying. In the US, 19 men armed with little knives brought your country to it's knees. Just saying. If by "brought to it's knees" is "took over multiple foreign ...

I suggest that the natural gas supplies that are in the ground in the UK are better left where they are for now and perhaps for a few decades. Like a gold reserve it will increase in value where it sits and one day, when world supplies available to you from importation have declined and prices clim...

Unfortunate that none of the nearby sheeple were carrying narwhal tusks and fire extinguishers. Narwhal tusks in emergency stands on every corner? Small fire extinguishers to carry in purses or backpacks? Training for all citizens in their use and handling? That there are 3 dead and others injured ...

Not fine or balanced at all and the medical brains all flunked economics.
And what price economics when it claims that we can and should have perpetual growth in a finite environment?
Strawman nonsense.
