A Nice Business To Do People With (The Atlantic Bridge)

In 1997, Liam Fox founded a Think Tank called Atlantic Bridge under the patronage of Margaret Thatcher Past directors, or “Advisory Council” members of Atlantic Bridge included Michael Gove, George Osborne, William Hague, Boris Johnson, Norman Tebbit, Malcom Rifkind and Chris Grayling. If you wanted to cast a net over this lot, they would all be found clustered together way over on the extreme right hand side of British politics.

  I was brought up listening to “The Wireless” back in the 50’s and 60’s, and one of my first recollections of radio comedy was the Goon Show, hilarious at the time but a bit of an acquired taste these days. After the customary popularity, they faded, drifting into the dark corners of the shed that is my head The Goons received a renaissance in the late 90’s when a

UKIP, Dead but won’t lie down, (the gift that keeps on taking).

Meet Richard Billington, a UKIPPER of very little principle, and judging by the Emails he puts his name to, he is a complete and utter moron. From his pre-election blurb: - Richard, who lives in Foxton near Market Harborough, taught for 14 years and now runs a financial services limited company. He joined UKIP in 1990. Richard, said: “Should you elect me, my focus would be to serve the electorate

The Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn – a reply to Owen Jones by Tom London

Owen Jones has written an article this week in the Guardian calling on Jeremy Corbyn to stand down. I take what Jones says seriously but I think he is wrong. Some may dismiss what Jones says by attacking the man and not the argument. Jones himself anticipates this - “The party’s warring factions now refuse to accept that differing opinions are expressed in good faith - there have to be
Great news for the people of the Netherlands, their Government just learned that the planned subsidy for a second Windfarm is going to be considerably less than the original forecasts. The proposed project, 22Km off the Zeeuwse coast will deliver power to between 850k and 1 Million households and instead of the subsidy being €5 Billion, it will now be €3 Million. Dutch economic affairs Minister, Henk Kamp, stated that the park would be built by a consortium comprising Dutch Shell, Eneco, (Electricity supplier), Van Oord (Dredging specialists) and DGE, an offshoot of Mitsubishi. This consortium agreed to the much lower subsidy level which is now set at a mere 5.45 Euro cents/Kwh. The deal has been struck in such a way that Government exposure is minimal, with the subsidy is only paid out on Kwh actually delivered This project is the first of 5 farms proposed off the Netherlands coast, each with an output of 700 Megawatts capable of supplying 5 Million homes. The expectation is that after 7-8 years the parks will function subsidy free. When the agreements to build were made in 2013 the government allowed for a total subsidy level of €18 Bn. "It is now possible that 6 billion will be enough," said Minister Kamp on Monday. Great news for the environment, proof that Fossil fuel companies can take the lead in renewables, and of course, a welcome change from the British model where they insist on getting everything arse about face with projects coming in, overpriced, over budget, and way over their allotted timeframe. Mrs. May could learn a thing or two methinks, especially bearing in mind that all this windfarm activity is taking place in exactly the same North Sea that laps on the shores of Britain Meanwhile, the Netherlands government is planning from 2030 to build 5 more Windfarms, each capable of 1000Mw, as well as large Geothermal and Solar power developments which in total will supply 5,000,000 homes. With this additional capability added to the existing developments, the Netherlands will be effectively fossil fuel free, and at this rate in a good position to export energy throughout the EU.

Fukushima, the slowest, most catastrophic train wreck in the world.

On the morning of 12th March 2011, I reported for work on the Seismic exploration crew I was working on in S.E. Asia. At breakfast there was a lot of talk about a massive earthquake that had happened the previous day and was so strong that it had obliterated several seismic records we had made at the time. Considering that we were using explosives drilled into solid rock, that’s not
