    The Chinese are going to help us build three nuclear power stations, on similar lines th the French one, which suffers from technical problems. The price of the electricity they produce has already been agreed. More expensive than coal fired or gas turbine generated. We have the technology and the workers to build them ourselves but...............

    I hear that next they are going to give us lesson on egg sucking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They should build one next to the Houses of Parliament, I do hope they are more reliable than most of what comes out of China.

    Within the next year or so we have been promised a vote on whether to stay in the EU (originally promised five years ago). Unfortunately there is a lot of bias involved. The latest scam is that the EU is forcing all British farmers to erect a large billboard advertising the EU, or lose their grants and repay anything they already receive. Some of these billboard are several feet long and must be prominently displayed where the public can see them.
    Nice to know that this is going to be a fair and unbiased campaign,

    Don't worry teddy the UK and NZ maybe entering a trade deal this is after you threw us out when you entered the EU, I don't forget these things we threw out all subsidies shortly afterwards so our producers were all by themselves, the process was very hard on the Farmers who had up until then taken it for granted but suddenly had to be business savy. I don't think there are many countries that don't have primary produce subsidies.

    We can no longer buy duty free when we travel to France as the EU has deemed it is not far enough away. This has wrecked the local ferry trade and lots of shops in Calais have shut down. However if you work for the EU you can buy goods duty free. You couldn't make it up.

    The flooding ( three times in five days) in Cumbria is being blamed on climate change. Funny that we have had heavier rainfalls several times in the last 100 years without this happening. Nothing to do with the fact that THERE IS MORE TARMAC, CONCRETE AND BUILDING leading to more run off and less soaking into the ground. Nothing to do with 249 flood defence programmes being shelved or postponed. Nothing to do with the rivers not being dredged to protect mollusks. Nothing to do with drainage being taken away from the control of the farmers and controlled by government who ignored the warnings over a ten year period from the people who understood the land. But don't worry, people of Cumbria. We are giving India 2,3 BILLION pounds to India for flood control. And of course another 12.7 BILLION pounds in foreign aid, most of which is either wasted on vexatious schemes of wasted on poor administration. Sorry about your ruined Christmas.
