Just thought I would he mention he did say along the lines of unfettered capitalism was contributing to the demise of the planet.


Perhaps that is why peribro thinks the planet is not in danger as that would mean rethinking his politics.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

Yes bring back Mao Zedong - and Pol Pot whilst we are about it. Let's go back to an agrarian economy.

Leaving aside the tens of millions who died under those despots do you want me to quote the increases in life expectancy over the last 20, 40, 100 years etc? Or the enormous reductions in poverty and infant mortality etc etc. It's about getting an appropriate balance. If you want to go and live in a cave somewhere then up to you.

I'm actually thinking about an electric car I'm sure you'll be pleased to hear. Tesla is bringing out one next year that can do 0-60mph on less than 2 seconds! I'll let someone else worry about where the electricity comes from that will allow me to drive that fast!

Ahhhh yess that would put me off along with the pathetic range that necessitates having another fossil fuelled vehicle for longer trips.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

I take it your ramblings are about the dangers of communism and in that I would agree with you but you still don't seem to recognize the dangers of capitalism and the dangerous aspect of the greed that drives it. There are countries that have turned to socialist principles and believe it or not they are a lot better off than the British.
As for your electric car and were the electricity comes from you totally discount that power from alternative sources are quite possible if governments did not take sweeteners from the major power suppliers to not seriously look for them.
Reactionary ways of thinking will not save the planet, not that we will be around to witness it.

It is indeed about getting the appropriate balance Peter. And when that's not right this is what happens -
