This government stinks.
I'm absolutely sick of them championing environmental causes in their PR line and rhetoric, and then torpedoing absolutely any local, national or transnational legislation / directives / initiatives which aim to clean up the filthy mess that their friends in industry, or we the public, are making.
Renewable energy - no funding or support, and do their best to undermine wind. Instead, they try to force through new nuclear power stations, at the behest of the power industry.
Build as many new roads as possible and deliberately underfund rail improvements.
Try to push through as many airport expansions as possible, on the basis of fixed and completely erroneous fears about our business environment becoming less competitive if we don't expand capacity massively. In doing so, consistently lie about environmental implications and deliberately mislead the public.
Recycling. Whine and cry to the EU, and provide little or no support to local authorities in the form of national recycling infrastructure (it's non-existant).
GMO & herbicides / pesticides. Rely on Monsanto, Bayer and their ilk for 'impartial' advice. On the basis of this advice, decide that everything is hunky-dory and that we must proceed with GM and use even more agrichemicals ....... and we absolutely mustn't ban any of the really nasty chemicals, as other countries in Europe are beginning to do - even go as far as to set up some institute to 'get to the bottom' of the bee colony collapse disorders - saying that it might be parasites, a virus, or fungal infections ....... of course, this is merely a diversion - the cause is known, and it's pesticides.
