If the equivalent Japanese car cost 20% less than German - especially as the German economy is being supported by a lot of decent suffering small countries - I know which one I choose.

I don't need an Allegro. I've got a 1967 Midget. The UK car industry was not just damaged by union militancy, rank bad management was worse. I'll see your Allegro and raise you a Stag. Jaguar - the rusty one - and The Rover engine with plastic inserts.

The UK's roads are thick with German cars because the structure of the euro effectively gives them an exchange rate advantage : they are subsidised by the weaker EU economies. This is a strange definition of 'level playing field'.

Buying a new German car is an unpatriotic act.

It sounds like sillymachus.

BTW, I'm a British subject, not a citizen.

Hinckley was planned for 2020 and to cost £4,000,000,000. Now 2025 and £20,000,000,000. Finland's experience suggests both those figures are under-estimates.

Abandon EPRs, they are proving almost unbuildable. Frack UK shale, extend the gas grid which will replace oil central heating and buy time for SMRs.

Cheap energy is vital for our competitiveness
Sizewell and the others will cripple UK industry.

It's because it's a small independent group that talks sense. Can't have that!

When I was a councillor I had to sign a commitment to not damage my residents. The green reset programme will literally kill the old, the poor and the sick. Are they legally liable for that> When the worst happens I hope they will be ruined professionally and financially.

What they propose is the equivalent of corporate manslaughter.

Having worked for Mr Cummings at a considerable distance -- mainly trudging around Suffolk streets with lots and lots of leaflets -- I can't say I am particularly impressed by his organisation ability. The technique (if it can be dignified with such a name) was to load the volunteers with too much work, too many messages, in the same way that the Conservative party does by elections. Making himself a target by dressing in a 'look at me, I'm a rebel' fashion was a mistake, but making enemies among the 'must is not a word for princes' mandarins was a huge plus.

The biggest loss is his understanding of what the UK needs to do now to not just survive but thrive. His Arpa will not now happen. For all his faults he had that major big idea, something beyond the more conventional politicians he clashed with. We will all be poorer for that failure.

As for the person who got him sacked, words fail me.

To bring about true change, wear a suit and think new thoughts.
