I am rather looking forward to this tonight AT 9 pm. From the TV trailer it looks like his answer to Britain's economic stagnation is exactly the same sort of free enterprise, deregulation & getting rid of big government parasitism I have been pushing here.
Martin Durkin explains the full extent of the financial mess the UK is in and presents his argument of what needs to be done to make the economy boom againBy coincidence Tory MP & former "right wing" leadership candidate John Redwood is going to be leading a debate in Parliament today
Today we have the debate on how to secure faster and more consistent economic growth in the UK. I will be proposing a five point plan for the government.I am a former Liberal Democrat expelled when the party decided that traditional liberalism was now "illiberal & incompatible with party membership. The fact that I was opposed to genocide has also been admitted as an underlying motive.
MORE AND BETTER BANKS
LESS AND BETTER REGULATION
MORE PRIVATELY FINANCED INFRASTRUCTURE ...to allow the construction of a new generation of power stations and to permit more privately financed transport provision. It needs to crack on with its plans for faster and better broadband throughout the UK.
One interesting thing about this is the history of Martin Durkin. In 2007 he produced The Great Global Warming Swindle which is just about the only honest coverage there has ever been of the catastrophic warming we are alleged to be experiencing on UK TV.
When the programme was broadcast the Guardian (a newspaper with a bad record, even by the standards of the UK press, of lying in the Nazi cause during the Yugoslav wars) pulled out every stop to denigrate him. One of those used by George Monbiot & others there was that Durkin had a history of communism. "It emerged that Durkin, the creative force behind this series, was a communist with strong anti-environmentalist views." Moonbat also attacked at the time him for having previously dared to produce a programme saying that the then scare against breast enhancements, something Moonbat had been pushing, was false. Even in 2007 the statistical evidence had proven beyond any reasonable doubt that that was a false scare & George must have known it.
What we now see is that there is no longer any serious dividing line in British & indeed world politics between "left" & "right". The division is between those who support wealth production, human freedom & less government parasitism & technological progress & those who want "to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."(Henry Louis Mencken) so that they may enhance state parasitism, mire us in poverty (or at least as much poverty as they can manage) & continue to practice atrocities at will, which, at best, classes them as fascists.
The Fascists have considerable control of the state & media on their side but we have the march of history. Any nation which continues to submit to the eco-fascists is bound to decline so it is not a matter of who will win but of whether we will go down wiyh the fascists.
