For instance, we have Islamophobia (the fear of being blown up by an ISIS terrorist) and Xenophobia (the fear of having NO proper border controls).
There are of course many phobias. For instance there is the one the Editor suffers from, Ergophobia. Then we have the one that Cameron and his Ilk suffer from: Veritaphobia. Veritaphobia is of course the fear of the truth. Veritaphobia is quite a common complaint at Westminster, in particular within the confines of the Palace of Westminster. 10 Downing Street has however long been a particular hot spot. Chronic suffers have long resided there.
The reason for the title and the image of today’s article is of course that carrots were one of the most prominent of the great deceptions perpetrated in recent times. And it was a deception that was an honourable and worthy one and one that happily succeeded. As British Gazette Readers will know, Radar and the Chain Home stations was one of the assets that gave this country that vital edge in the Battle of Britain. Airborne radar was later developed and the word was put about amongst the British population to eat carrots to boost night vision – to aid the spotting of enemy aircraft at night. The RAF knew that they had to fool the British People completely for that was the only way they could fool the Germans. And it worked!
Unfortunately this noble example has since been duplicated by the dishonourable successors to honourable men. Nonsense such as CO2 is a problem and is warming the planet and making the oceans acidic. Nonsense such as the sulphur dioxide emitted from coal fired power stations is endangering plant life when in fact it is doing exactly the opposite! Nonsense such as a combination of energy saving, wind turbines and solar panels can provide most the the UK’s electricity.
Of course Cameron no more believes the nonsense he commands to be put out any more than Marshal of the Royal Air Force, Sir Charles Portal, Viscount Portal of Hungerford KG, GCB, OM, DSO & Bar, MC did about eating carrots! But then Lord Portal was an honourable honest military man leading the nation’s fight for survival and had a justifiable excuse.
The question many will ask of course is: Why?
Cameron is not a stupid man. He knows that the wind turbines cannot supply the power reliably and have a short service life (15 years or so as opposed to 55 years of a coal fired power station). He knows that by the time the unfortunate Ed Davy or whoever is his successor finishes the construction of the first tranche of wind turbines the first examples will have reached the end of their lives and will need to be replaced. In other words a Forth Bridge scenario but on an altogether grander and more costly scale.
The most obvious fact is that there is something (or some things) that we the British People ARE NOT BEING TOLD.
Why are we being force fed bullshit whilst the UK’s economy is put at very serious risk due to the lack of reliable competitively priced electricity?
Yes, the Green Economy and Green Jobs are a scam but Cameron and his ilk MUST KNOW that ALL frauds if persisted with will end up with the perpetrators being found out, arrested, charged, convicted and imprisoned! Let us face it, if the Lord Chief Justice, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and the Attorney General do not know this, then who the hell does?
One has to ask these questions: Is there an affordable new technology being developed which can quickly be put in place to fill the energy gap? And if so, why the secrecy? And what is it?
There is no doubt, it is a great mystery as the actions of the politicians – across the world – seem to defy common sense and rational explanation.
