You couldn't make it up if you tried. Is this the unholy alliance of Gove and Farage :wink

Clexit is brilliant. Build coal power stations and frack while we get nuclear online. The UK must become self sufficient in energy.

The UK is not a rich country anymore.

Isn't it about time we had a referendum to settle the climate change question once and for all?:suicide:

The UK is responsible for around 1% of global CO2 emissions, so any reductions we make really are a drop in the ocean.

And I read somewhere that plants (forests) are flourishing thanks to all the lovely CO2 they're now getting.

Remember that teeny weeny Volcanic eruption over Iceland a couple of years ago that caused a couple of planes to need their fans cleaning?

More CO2 released in 2 days than all of the CO2 from the cars in Germany for the year. CO2 barely registers on the scale of green house gases, but it does make Motorist a soft target.
