UK Parliament – We Need To Watch The Back Door

February 10, 2010

Not many people will have heard about “Early Day Motions”, especially outside the UK.  They are basically motions tabled for future discussion in the Houses of Parliament.  Although mostly irrelevant, rarely debated and generally ignored they can be a good indicator of the general feeling within the house.

One such EDM was signed by over 400 MP’s, and put pressure on the formalising of the 2008 Climate Change Act, which is the ultimate “science is settled” Government Act, and basically means that whatever the findings on dodgy-Phil and his mates,  the UK will plough relentlessly on with creating huge windfarms.

Very few people, outside of the loonie-left will have spotted this one:

EDM 189, Collin Challen (Labour Party), Climate Change.

“That this House recognises that there is a climate emergency and that the catastrophic destabilisation of global climate represents the greatest threat that humanity faces; further recognises that the world is already above the safe level of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration for a stable planet; further recognises the need to reduce this level to 350 particles per million or below; believes it is impossible to predict how close the world is to dangerous tipping points and that action to reduce emissions now is worth considerably more than doing the same later; further believes that immediate action is required to enact a program of emergency measures with substantial emissions reductions in the short term of the order of 10 per cent. by the end of 2010; further believes that the majority of money spent on reviving the economy should be on green measures and that at least two hours of prime time television per week should be used to explain the gravity of the crisis to the public; further believes that unabated coal and domestic flights should be phased out by the end of 2010, that a speed limit of 55 miles per hour should be introduced and investment made in energy efficiency and renewable energy, public transport and the retro-fitting of efficient insulation to existing housing stock technologies leading to the creation of a million green jobs by the end of 2010; and further believes that the introduction of such measures would send a positive signal to other countries leading up to the UN climate change summit in Copenhagen and beyond.”

Yes you read it right, this public representative is calling for an end to freely-available domestic flights, coal, and a national speed limit of 55 miles per hour. On top of that these eco-fascists want every penny we spend on fixing the economy to go on green measures, and for the UK public to have their brains throughly cleansed through two hours of propaganda rammed down their throats each week on TV.

Supported by a group of maniacs at this site, this is surely an example of the  hysteria that has been whipped up over what has up until now actually been a, disputed, rise of between 0.5 and 1 degree celcius in the last 100 years. If you ever needed an example of how religion became so widely followed by the mindless masses, through delivering a relentless fundamentalist message, this is it.

So, wherever you are in the UK, why not have a look and see if your local MP, your voice in the UK Parliament is actually a raving left wing fundamentalist, and if they are, write and ask them in whose name these extreme measures are, and what evidence their is for such drastic action.

Also remember this when you go to vote in May.

    Seeing as none of them are likely to be in government after May 6th, I wouldn’t worry too much.

    • Of course Challen was (and still is?) a member of the Green Fiscal Commission, along with disgraced former climate secretary, Chris Huhne, and of course current government minister Greg Barker, and the ubiquitous Lord Ron Oxburgh and many other “green” activists. According to the Green Fiscal Commission, this is exactly what they want/need/believe. To impose so called “green” restrictions on UK society and business. Some members became embroiled in the Parliamentary Expenses Scandals, and others are biased advocates with vested interests, and may even have pecuniary involvement in related organisations.

  2. EDM 189 formed no part of government policy,
    but was it a close shave? There are certainly
    many co-incidences in the World today, and of
    you can find correlation where there is none.
