Shades of the Prison House

The Committee on Climate Change is a quango that advises the Regime on how to meet climate change targets. The Regime has committed the United Kingdom to reducing greenhouse gases by 34 per cent by 2020 and 80 per cent by 2050. (this is post democratic administrative governance, settled in for the long term, you understand).

Lord Turner, the chairman of the climate change quango, said that people should be given personal flight limits. At the same time a Regime-favoured and funded think tank, the Institute of Policy Research, is calling for everyone in the country to have their flight and car use rationed (in the interests of meeting the Regime's green house emission targets of course). Carbon credits that limit the amount individuals can spend on 'luxuries' like air travel should be allocated.

How long before priorities are set for air travel allocations, acceptable destinations listed, full lodging of travel plans required before journeys? With e borders the gates began to close. Soon having the cash and the papers and the destination will not be enough to permit leaving.

Everyone? Everyone?

Do you think so?

Think there won't be an exemption for the ruling and political classes?
