I suppose being a first world country comes with its responsibilities JL5. Forget aid, the biggest gift we can give emerging nations is cheap energy. We really need to swallow our medicine to mitigate our environmental footprint and allow others to follow in our wake. Sustainability is a global conundrum.

BoE Governor and Rishi in cahoots with screwing Lloyds. Bear in mind that Rishi was a Partner in the largest UK Hedge Fund during the last crisis, where he shorted Lloyds Bank near to complete collapse. He was rewarded for his troubles when he, as one of 20 Partners, shared a £0.5 Billion bonus pot. Degorce and Sunak both worked for the Children’s Investment Fund Management, a hedge fund run by the billionaire Sir Chris Hohn, which also had links to companies in the Cayman Islands. Rishi was also one of the founders of Hedge Fund Firm Theleme Partners in 2009.

Cant do that tricky when the govt are untruthful: Net zero to destroy manufacturing: If it involved any other subject, the news that the Government hid estimates of the true cost of one of its policies would be a scandal. Imagine, for example, how bonkers the Guardian would go if it emerged that ministers and civil servants had colluded to conceal their real estimate of the costs of Brexit. But when it emerges that the Treasury withheld what it regarded as the "more realistic" £70 billion a year estimate of the cost of achieving net zero emissions by 2050 there was barely a murmur. There is a long tradition of dishonesty over the cost of climate change policies. It wasn’t so long ago that the Coalition was implausibly trying to tell us that the Climate Change Act was going to save us money, by creating "green jobs" and saving us from ever-increasing fossil fuel prices. The collapse in oil and gas prices in 2014 put paid to that pretence, and when Theresa May’s government upped the legally-binding target contained in the act from an 80 per cent cut by 2050 to net zero emissions by that date the then chancellor, Philip Hammond, did quietly admit it would cost us £50 billion a year. But it now transpires that officials, even at the time, thought that an under-estimate. The Government has got away with committing Britain to such a ruinously expensive policy because we have no proper debate over climate change and what we should do about it. The Climate Change Act was passed in 2008 with only five MPs voting against. Opposition to the net zero target is squashed through emotive charges of climate change "denial" and falsely claiming that all those who criticise climate change policy are stooges for the oil industry. The absence of debate has blinded us to the reality that while many countries have made vague pledges to cut emissions, only a tiny handful have tied themselves down with legally-binding targets which provide no wriggle room. Very few people are aware of a fatal flaw in the Climate Change Act that could condemn most of our remaining manufacturing industry to oblivion. The net zero target only refers to "territorial emissions" – ie those physically spewed out within Britain. It excludes aviation, shipping and emissions elsewhere in the world made in the name of providing goods and services for UK consumers. It is not hard to work out what will happen: UK manufacturing will be forced to relocate to China and other countries which have not been so foolish as to paint themselves into a corner by setting a net zero target before they have any idea how it can be achieved. We have as yet no commercially viable means of decarbonising high-emitting industries such as steel and cement, for example. That is why even the Government’s higher estimate of £70 billion a year cost to achieve net zero by 2050 is likely itself to be an under-estimate. If we lose these industries and are forced to import these goods (to no net benefit for the planet) the cost to the economy will be far greater. The public is right to be concerned about the environment and there are all sorts of reasons why we should invest in clean energy, hopefully eventually phasing out fossil fuels. But the real deniers are those who claim that we can achieve a unilateral policy of net zero by 2050 without serious costs to the UK economy, if not an outright diminution in living standards.

JL5 FFS you need to bring people with u. Being PM is all about influencing/ cohersing public opinion. The last PM that did precisely what he wanted was Gordon Brown and he was a scruffy Jock who hadn't had a recent jet wash for years & appealed to no one! luv your posts btw:)

Tricky The truth methinks lies in the article above. IMO Johnson will be remembered as amongst the most disastrous Prime Ministers in history. Everyone has a view . IMO we should have left the EU WTO. Doris wanted it for himself and seemingly got into rather a pickle - from which we may not escape. Alexander Johnson that is Thus he has now put Gove in charge of leading ‘the review’ of vaccine passports in the expectation that he will complete the surrender of his soul by smoothing the path to the birth of a CCP surveillance state in Great Britain. On completing this task Gove will be dispensed with: The final tragic gesture of a completely failed career. Yet here there is a certain irony. As the only minister with anything like a moral character, even if a compromised one, Gove is amongst the few politicians in Europe with the possibility of a redemption arc

Jl5, yes I take your point although unemployment rates were relatively low there are plenty of people claiming benefits for conditions which they shouldnt like being a fat slag..popular in some of the outlying ex labour heartlands & Scotland. Free port locations are fantastic let's hope real employment will solve some of the inequality in opportunity of outcome for those that have been overlooked or sacrificed to pacify the EU. Many of these communities have had plenty of stick and no carrot, walking round Hull is depressing. Boris will not yield to the EU and will break the bank to back Britain & Bozza is just the 'everyman' to make it work imo.

Tricky severely overpopulated Perhaps so Overpopulated with those who find the excuse not to get involved in work. How about birth control ? Outrage! Why no- travel passes - leisure time passes -? We cant provide a state service for all from the cradle to the grave at no cost. This is not a conservative government - more like Corbyn would have . Next step pay all not to work - well those that dont wish to. And there we have it - bankruptcy.

The UK states facts, while Brussels issues threats, and intimidates. This re. the spat with Oz. "Johnson’s official spokesman noted that Ursula von der Leyen, the European Commission president, had previously assured the Prime Minister that fresh restriction laws would not be used to block vaccine shipments. Speaking at this afternoon’s Number 10 lobby briefing, the spokesman added: “We’re not privy to the specific agreements between other countries and vaccine manufacturers. “However, the PM spoke to president von der Leyen earlier this year, and she confirmed that the focus of their mechanism was on transparency and not intended to restrict exports by companies where they are fulfilling contractual responsibilities.221;

Blackrock have a very large stake, they will probably be in cahoots with their mates to trade the 1p movements both ways.

I doubt that... at 41.4p it's already 5p behind the rest and it can't even hold that. Crashed back to 40.75 already. It's a real underperformer Lloyds - has been for 10 years. I am really looking forward to 52p as that's when I sell and walk. I have put a huge batch in my ISA now which I will now hold until then and I have another small £10k bunch I will trade for the boredom...
