Not content with having destroyed British conservatism, David Cameron has decided he might as well go the whole hog and finish off the British economy as well.
He announced it yesterday as one of his key priorities if and when he forms his Coalition of the Suicidal with Nick Clegg. He said he would make “the creation of a low carbon economy a priority.”
Presumably – demonstrating that same sophistication that secured his party such a spectacular popular mandate in the General Election – Cameron imagined he was being frightfully clever. ‘Here’s a sop I can easily afford to give the Lib Dems, without betraying any of my party’s core principles’ kind of thing.
No Dave. I hate to tell you this but committing Britain to a low-carbon economy is not like committing yourself to keeping all phone boxes painted red or promising Britain will never join a currency it was never going to join in a million years anyway.
A low carbon economy is virtually the same thing as NO economy.
