Energy Bill published… and in our supposed democracy, the media and the people sleep on

The big news this week? Many of you may think it is the floods across the country. Others will believe it is the Leveson Report. Others may feel it is the Common Purpose inspired Rotherham foster child scandal.

Of course, it’s all subjective. But for this blog the biggest news this week – and indeed for many months – is that which will have the widest reaching and most harmful effect on the vast majority of people up and down the UK. Only, assuming our glorious press is capable of understanding the story in the first place, you won’t have read much about it in the papers or seen it on the news because the press is too busy doing exactly what the political parties do… navel gazing and considering its self interest. That is why they are in such convival company among the establishment.

The story? Why, it’s the Energy Bill of course. It’s huge (that applies as much to the draft legislation as to what drops on your doormat) it’s sexy, it’s loaded with scandal and dodgy dealing, it has the capacity to run for months on end and it’s underpinned by faustian pacts. But barely anyone is giving the Energy Bill, the ream of additional information about it, the coverage it deserves.

It will only get the coverage it deserves, and the politicians will only come under necessary scrutiny and pressure, when people see the cost of heating their homes and having the lights on continues to spiral, and rota disconnections via smart meters remotely cut the power to our homes despite lofty pledges to keep the lights on.

The politicians will follow the usual response format. First they will blame wholesale energy prices for the increasing cost of consumer energy. Then they will prattle on about people needing to shop around for the best deal, where the major energy providers (British Gas, E.ON, nPower, Scottish and Southern, EDF and Scottish Power) provide tariffs ranging from high (which people opt for as the cheapest available option) to ludicrous (knowing hardly anyone will opt for them it makes the high tariff look comparatively good value). Soon that bolt hole for the Westminster morons will disappear when the range of tariffs becomes limited by law thanks to a typically brainless Cameron piece of policy making on the hoof. The effect of this will be the lowest available prices actually increased and the cartel able to lock in their existing customer base as there will be no benefit to changing provider with barely a cigarette paper between the prices each of the big six set.

But it is the politicians who are to blame.

It is the politicians who are, with puppy-like timidity, executing the policies and direction handed down to them by unelected, unaccountable and largely unknown bureaucrats and activists operating with impunity within the structures of the United Nations to make the supposedly voluntary and non-binding Agenda 21 (sustainable development) a reality.

Rather than map out in detail here how the vicious Agenda 21 objectives (which this UN document explains without any mention of the word voluntary) are designed to force people to reduce energy consumption I humbly recommend this post by Richard at EU Referendum, who has been painting the bigger picture and connecting the dots on this massive story for a long time and continued with that effort yesterday.

The Agenda 21 objectives drive up prices by reducing supply. That is why industrialised nations are decommissioning effective and reliable energy generating capacity and replacing it with ineffective, unreliable and intermittent sources that are only economically viable if people pay grossly inflated charges – and behind the scenes billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money is forked over in direct funding to the land barons and subsidy farmers who get rich in return for a product that isn’t fit for purpose.

The same objectives are responsible for driving an insane approach to water supply, where the focus is on restricting our use instead of building more reservoirs to negate the need for supply interruptions and hose pipe bans. All of it done out of the sight and beyond the reach of voters, but we all feel the effects. And with a typical inversion of the reality, using techniques embraced by totalitarians the world over, Agenda 21′s corruption of ‘sustainability’ is portrayed in images and logos as a something wonderful.

The media would rather focus on the cult of celebrity and their own narrow interests. If it were not for a few determined people fighting to be heard on the internet we would know nothing about this. That’s why the majority of the people in this country continue to sleep on in ignorance – indeed in places like Croydon North, Rotherham and Middlesbrough, they even continue to vote for the slime representing the very political parties who are carrying out this spiteful agenda.

    A devious political ploy by announcing the new energy plans on the same day as 3 bye-elections and the Levison report and so gets it buried. It was no accident the plan was announced on the 29 November. Cameron knew it would be relegated into the background and he has the gaul to call this a democracy.

    The propagandisation of this issue is nauseating. I listened last evening to BBC Radio2′s “business” newshound as I was driving home, trilling on about how we could rely on renewables and would not have therefore to rely on gas. Where was the mention of the gas-powered infrastructure for wind-less days? Why no mention of Shale Gas? She informed listners that we could look forward to lower bills in future because we’d be using less energy. DoubleThink, NewSpeak. Bollocks.

    Yep, excellent, went under the radar, that.

    AM: Many thanks for this excellent posting. I keep my eye on many climate and energy websites, but I haven’t seen any explanation as to why we have to close down coal-fired power stations (eg. Didcot in the new year) while Germany is able to plan and construct 23 new ones, commissioning over the next seven years. Some are probably lignite burning, too. Do you know why – or can you point me in the right direction for an answer?

    The question is – are they using Nigeria a s a role model?

    thanks for the analysis.

    I would make one point. Yes, Agenda 21 purports to deliver sustainable development but this is a euphemism. If you chart Maurice Strong’s history and actually read between the lines of Agenda 21 (in fact, in places you simply have to read the lines themselves) its true goal is sustainable consumption.

    This is why energy/water/fuel use is all about our beloved ‘leaders’ and their lackeys in local authorities and NGOs managing the demand, not the supply of these resources, through hosepipe bans; water meters; smart meters; taxation, etc.

    So, increasing (‘skyrocketing’) are designed to reduce demand/consumption not reduce supply.

    Speaking of restricting water use, the Law of Unintended Consequences is enforcing itself in Germany. As usual, the Germans overdo vigourously when inspired. Low-flow toilets are especially common in wealthier neighbourhoods, e.g. in Berlin. You can “Tell by the Smell”. Deprived of adequate water flow (called “flushing” for a reason), sewer lines clog and decomposition accelerates. Main lines are somewhat moved along by massive discharges of purified water re-directed for the purpose, but the feeder lines in residential areas can’t be so accessed.

    So follow your nose to follow/find the money in Deutschland.

    Try your link to Agenda 21 on the UN website! :-(
    It’s now dead unless it’s just my ISP & Virgin blocking.

    Good spot, David. The link has been changed. The location is now…

    http://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/index.php?page=view&type=400&nr=23&menu=35

    I’ll update the link in the post. Thanks.

    Thanks AM.
    I had a look around the UN site & couldn’t find it.
    Had a feeling they weren’t quite as proud & open about it as before. (Paranoia?)

    They have no shame, so I don’t think it’s anything to do with embarrassment. Just a reorganisation of the deck chairs.
