Call me cynical but……

Energy prices go up….and the media reports they could go up by another 40% this year (This is legalised extortion…the only winners are the Government and the Energy Companies)….Government says “Oh dear, well maybe we should re-introduce the whole Nuclear Power thing now then eh? Cheap power and all that!” (Knowing that it will take at least 10 years for the new strategy to have any effect on prices…

Food prices go up and are reported to continue to rise….Government says “Oh well, maybe we need to start bringing GM Crops to our lower food base range…cheap food eh?”.

Sorry, I don’t buy that. The more ANY SANE PERSON looks at the global situation, the more you HAVE to smell a Global Rat…

Of course if the Global Conspiracy theory will not fly then at the very least the UK Energy Companies (and by virtue, their shareholders) have a massive part to play in the destruction of our economy…how? Well if our Utility companies had not been sold down the river to foreign companies we would not be subject to what is in effect economic warfare. If these international companies where not allowed to extort (yes, extort) money from the UK citizens in such a way as to protect their own profits and economies then we would not be facing one of the biggest economic crisis in 30 years.

Capitalism works only if you have a market that is not destroyed by excessive taxation.

On a side note, if this Government is willing to take the plaudits for its “sterling economic mastery” over the past 10 years and NOT give credit to the international economic state, when the economy goes Pete Tong as it is doing, well heck, they need to stand up and take the flack….but NO…apparently it’s all down to international economic pressures..nothing to do with Browns economic mis-management and shicanery eh?
