Be honest – would you trust your 16-year-old self to set the policies, the laws and the agenda by which your life is governed?
I know I certainly would not. It was not that I was particularly stupid, but I was trusting and naive and very inexperienced. So it is no surprise to read that such a preposterous proposal comes from the Greens.
But don’t listen to me – look at your energy bills. The reason they are so high is because the green lobby conned the government into introducing green taxes.
These have been used to enrich land owners prepared to erect wind-turbines and vast fields of solar panels instead of producing useful but less profitable stuff like food .
Of course, no other nation has been so ready to commit economic suicide. So while we are saving the planet for them, we are scuppering ourselves.
