Should environmental ‘charities’ be allowed to meddle in elections?

Should environmental ‘charities’ be allowed to meddle in elections?

Parliament’ Street’s Aisha Vance argues that it is time for so called environmental ‘charities’ to come clean about their true agenda. Last week an organisation called: ‘Talk Fracking’ launched an anti-fracking, anti-conservative campaign. Their rhetoric on hydraulic fracturing is based on no logic or facts. One of their main points is children are being born deformed, although they have no evidence to […]

Why the left is Saudi Arabia’s greatest ally

Why the left is Saudi Arabia’s greatest ally

Parliament Street’s Director of Energy and Security comments on the surprise unspoken alliance between the left and Saudi Arabia.   In the past week since Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah’s death, there has been criticism from pundits on the right and left of our western leaders attending his funeral. Indeed, I would agree with them that Saudi Arabia has an atrocious human […]

An inconvenient lie: environmentalists get it wrong again

An inconvenient lie: environmentalists get it wrong again

While the rest of the world enjoys low energy prices and energy independence, the EU is left in the dust, under the thumbs of delusional anti-fossil fuel bureaucrats in Brussels. Doomsday, peak oil, extraordinary gas prices, natural resource wars; these were all predictions from environmentalists several years ago, and despite recent conflict in OPEC countries, the opposite has happened. This […]

Energy policy: all bandages but no cure

Energy policy: all bandages but no cure

The National Grid has warned by 2035 the UK could be importing as much as 90 per cent of its energy as uncertainty around the Government’s energy policy deepens. Is this a “green” government, like David Cameron stated in 2010, when he said it would be “The greenest Government ever,” focusing on so-called sustainable (but unreliable) energy sources like wind or solar? Or is […]

We need energy independence more than ever

We need energy independence more than ever

The last 72 hours have been extremely intense. Iraq is in another uprising of civil unrest and Russia is taking another aggressive step to intimidate Ukraine by shutting off their gas supply. It’s proof that the UK needs to act fast to secure energy independence from countries like Iraq and Russia and it needs to put its full force into […]

Protesting the Prime Minister: environmentalists lose their fracking minds

Protesting the Prime Minister: environmentalists lose their fracking minds

Yesterday, misguided minions of the corrupt environmental organisation, Greenpeace UK, set up a mock frack site at Prime Minister David Cameron’s home as a protest to the government’s energy bill, which will allow companies to extract natural gas 1000s of feet underneath residential properties—a step in the right direction that will allow us to benefit from the shale gas potential.
