Of course everyone is keen on saving the environment. What they don't realise that if the Greens were allowed to implement their policies in full, no fossil fuels, no nuclear, relying entirely on intermittent wind-power, solar (which only works by day) and tidal, which is regular but again intermittent, not only would fuel prices double, but thgere would be constant brown and black-outs, as none of the 'green' generating sources are reliable and consistent. Until we have batteries which can hold the enormous amount of power used every hour, or carbon capture from fossil fuels can be achieved, both of which are a long way off if ever achievable at all, their policies are a recipe for a return to the 18th century. No electricity, no computers, no internet, no shops-our reliance on electricity is total, and the Greens have no answer as to how it can be provided whilst following their dogma.
No surprises there, then, though how anyone works out a figure for corruption in North Korea is a mystery to me. And where does UK come in this? Fairly low, corruption-wise, I would suggest

Absolutely. But he's also omitted that there will be arguments about whether just under/just over the threshold, with properties having to be re-valued, appeals against valuations either way, legal bills etc-reducing the net take even further. This is nothing but the politics of envy- Labour's only message after the mess they left last time, and the even greater disaster that will take place if they get in again..

it's about time Cameron listened to the people, unlike the political metropolitan elite bent of keeping warm well-paid future jobs in the EU, and their ultra-pc outlook on gay marriage, diversity, etc
another couple of billion? surprise, surprise!
