The Pandora files investigation was a massive international collaboration, the timing of its release was nothing to do with the Tory conference.

And I think Marr and Robinson's approach was more to do with the fact that this PM very rarely submits himself to interviews so they're making the most of their opportunity.

(led by the bbc and guardian in the UK)

obviously the timing of the publication had nothing to do with the tory conference, but i heard it was the lead item on the news at six yesterday, right after sunak's big speech.

I can't stand that cunt. It's mad as well cos they have this thing where "deploy Boris" is some sort of code for just let him go out there and wow and charm people. Who the fuck is finding this dickhead anything other than unbearable and more to the point, totally incompetent. Can they not see through the act? It's so weird.

What could the government have done about this one? Seems to be a global issue, and I appreciate we need to judge them by their response, but have they actually exacerbated it?

 

The sooner we get onto renewables, the better, frankly.

We've no storage capacity, in contrast to most of Europe. And don't listen to the idiot Johnson wanting to switch to renewables by some ridiculously optimistic date. I honestly don't know how people don't understand renewables can only ever be part of the solution as they are all intermittent  The more we use renewables, the less resilience we have. Get a day without wind and your freezer will defrost. We need to generate base load. Nuclear would be best but we have massively fuckwd that up.

Or find a way to store the energy created by renewables and not used, also if you include tidal power that never runs out. Or hydro electricity or the new hydrogen plant powered by renewable energy planned in Glasgow

Storing electricity from renewables in the quantities needed to power homes and industries is a bit of a challenge. I suppose we rape the planet a bit more to manufacture huge, polluting batteries with a limited shelf life. Tidal power, I've not seen any example of that working large scale in practice. Hydroelectric in England, where 90% of the population lives? Not likely.  Can't comment on the hydrogen plant but doesn't it normally require energy to generate hydrogen? I'm sure its not straight forward or easily scaleable in any case.

 

Clearly energy generation is a massive complex problem that's not going to be solely solved through renewables. It's a travesty we let our nuclear industry decline to the extent we need to rely on French and Chinese expertise now imoq. And those interconnectors with France are based on nuclear too. This is why I dislike Green Peace so much. Purely driven by dogma rather than pragmatism.

Anybody listening to this drivel coming out of Johnson's gob? Predictable shit. But labour, stoke culture war, straw man, lies, obfuscation.

 

It'll all catch up on him though. It's in the post this winter, guaranteed.
