The immigration scandal

Dear Editor

Net migration for 2022, 606,000! This is a bl**dy disgrace. I reckon it will be nearer to 1m this year. No wonder public services are breaking down. And the number will be even higher if, God forbid, Starmer gets into No 10.

The MHRA, enabler for new drugs

Dear Editor

Thank you as always for inspirational content every single day.

This morning I found this ‘news’ article in the Telegraph.

It is quite simply astounding – it describes how the public are to be encouraged to take part in drug trials.

So:

The NHS can’t be bothered to do the day job.

No one in The State wants to discuss the effect of the last major healthcare policy.

Yet, the MHRA now see they should act like a Venture Capital ‘enabler’ for new drugs.

Interestingly, a few clicks revealed a cluster PR blitz from MHRA, see here, here and here.

Our pompous and ill-informed deluded elite have learnt nothing, and are happy.

Don’t say it with flowers

Dear Editor

I haven’t bothered with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year as I’m rather bored with all the ideological messages one has to absorb while looking at simple flowers – if it’s not depression, it’s motherhood and how we must do better. Whatever happened to just planting for planting’s sake?

Tyre wear could be worse than exhaust emissions

Dear Editor

Heavy vehicles tend to suffer higher tyre wear.

The Telegraph reports Nick Molden, chief executive at Emissions Analytics, which studies the pollution caused by tyres, saying: ‘If you’re worried about burning fossil fuels in your car engine, you should be as worried about the wear from tyres. Tailpipe emissions really only affect the air, whereas tyre wear affects air, soil and water.’

This is an issue for the UK and other nations as they move towards having more electric cars. The heavier a vehicle, the greater wear a tyre will face. Electric vehicles weigh an average of 200kg to 300kg more than a petrol car due to the battery pack. 

They also need higher torque – the twisting power that launches a car from a standing start – than internal combustion engines, which also puts more pressure on the tyres.

The world rejects Net Zero

Dear Editor

The climate apostles, activists and politicians live in a green world far removed from reality. The stark reality is that the rest of the world is not interested in Net Zero. Some headlines to show how futile UK efforts are:

·       G7 fails to set a deadline for coal phase out

·       COP28 host United Arab Emirates says the world is not yet ready to switch off fossil fuels

·       Ryanair dismisses Net Zero aviation agenda as it places a $40billion order for 300 Boeing 737 jets

·       Scots favour North Sea drilling over importing oil and gas

·       France rejects renewable energy targets and won’t back EU law to scale up renewable energy

·       Coal India has developed 52 new coal mining projects to reach its 1billion ton target

·       India will challenge EU carbon tax at the World Trade Organisation

·       Germany’s Green party punished in polls over plans to ban gas heating

·       Germany is dismantling eight wind turbines to expand an open pit coal mine

·       Crazy fracking ban, UK households face £6,000 bill for foreign gas.

Still think World Net Zero is achievable?
