In response to Patrick Benham-Crosswell: How can Javid balance the books?
Malcolm Parkin wrote:
The first thing Mr Javid must do is persuade our Prime Minister to ditch all this climate change nonsense which is simply unaffordable even if it were true, which of course it is not. The resultant debt would not be serviceable without huge hardship, even if it was obtainable. The existing national debt costs us about £1billion a week in interest, but £2billion? I think not. The aim of people like Greta and Extinction Rebellion is to collapse the western financial system by burdening business with costly carbon restraints, thus removing the income needed to service the increased national debt arising from abandoning fossil fuels and implementing their crackpot climate schemes. President Trump has realised this, along with China, India, South Korea and the worlds other industrial nations.
Get rid of the expensive climate fantasists and we might survive.
