"The report’s key finding is that for every job created in the UK in renewableDownloadable from here
energy, 3.7 jobs are lost. In Scotland there is no net benefit from government
support for the sector, and probably a small net loss of jobs."
"Labour's manifesto promises to create at least 100,000 new high skilled jobs in Scotland by 2015 - up to half of which are expected to be green collar jobs. Labour's manifesto also contains the promise of a Green Investment Bank that would provide £2 billion for green projects, many of which would be in Scotland."
So they are promising the net deliberate destruction of 270,000 jobs
"SNP First Minister Alex Salmond, had today announced that the party would aim to create 60,000 new jobs in the green energy sector over the next decade, particularly in tidal power and off shore wind farms."
Promising to destroy 160,000 productive jobs
Pseudoliberal promise: Chris Huhne promises to create 250,000 'green' jobs
Promising to destroy 650,000 jobs
Conservatives: "we will unleash the power of green enterprise and promote resource efficiency to generate thousands of green jobs."
It's fighting talk from the Green Party today as they promise a “green” recovery with a guarantee of 100,000 jobs over the next 10 years if the party is returned to Government.
The Greens, which published its jobs strategy today, say their policies implemented since 2007 have delivered more than 20,000 positions.
Promising to destroy 270,000 jobs and claiming credit for having already destroyed 54,000
That subsidising jobs that cannot exist without subsidy with money which must ultimately be taken from the productive part of the economy, with all the inherent added inefficiencies of having tax collectors to collect it and "environmental specialists" to hand it out, must automatically have a net cost and reduce jobs is about as basic in economics as you can get.
Therefore all leaders of all of these parties who have enough brains to know that water flows downwards know that when they promise "green jobs" they are lying. They are specifically and deliberately actually promising to destroy large numbers of jobs to provide taxpayers money to their friends, donor and cronies.
If any representative of these parties were remotely honest they could obviously never make the claims above. If they were remotely interested in improving the standard of living of the people they could never do it. If they were not lying thieves they could never take our money for this.
I don't think it can be factually denied that Labour, the SNP, Pseudoliberals, Conservatives and Greens are, one and all, proven to by wholly corrupt, lying thieves with no remote trace of concern for the country. Nor that the nominal 5 separate parties are, in the essentials, a coalition to help the same cronies.
Checking out UKIP and the BNP I find no such promises. QED
