The Green Socialist Hypocrisy Of Ed Miliband

Have you ever wondered how and why UK energy prices have risen so fast? The man to thank is Ed Miliband and the Climate Change Act he pushed through Parliament

Have you ever wondered how and why UK energy prices have risen so fast? The man to thank is Ed Miliband and the Climate Change Act he pushed through Parliament.

Politicians in the main are a pretty sickening breed, politicians of the socialist persuasion particularly so, when socialism and Green are mixed then be prepared for some truly sickening hypocrisy.

Take for example one Ed Miliband, leader of the British Labour Party and an ardent supporter of that global left wing cause célèbre the Green Agenda.

It is no secret that polling wise Ed Miliband is about as popular as a dead skunk in an elevator, so with the usual socialist shape shifting that Labour do so well, Ed Miliband is trying to buy votes by saying that a Labour government would freeze energy prices for 2 years if they were elected.

On the face of it, nothing wrong with that statement,  were it not for the fact that Miliband had also committed Labour to the lunacy of 2030 decarbonisation targets, like they say dumb can be cured, stupid is forever.

Hypocrisy can be a beautiful thing when done well. To go, as Ed Miliband has done, within four years, from being the minister insisting that energy prices must rise — so uncompetitive green energy producers can be enticed to supply power — to being the opposition leader calling for energy prices to be frozen is a breathtaking double axel that would make Torvill and Dean envious.

Remember this is the very architect of our current energy policy, the man who steered the suicidally expensive Climate Change Act through Parliament; the man who even this week pledged to decarbonise the entire British economy (not just the electricity sector) by 2030, meaning that nobody will be permitted to heat their house with gas.

Miliband has played the traditional socialist politics of envy meme about big business and the big 6 energy companies making huge profits, conveniently forgetting that his Climate Change Act 2008 paved the way for this by creating the environment where renewable energy producers are paid many times the going rate for electricity generation that for example gas and coal fired power stations are.

In 2009 Miliband was both defiant and insistent that people had to pay more for energy to save the planet.

Has he checked the price of electric heating versus gas recently? The gap is due to grow greater. By 2030 much of the electricity will, in theory, come from offshore wind, which is being promised three times the price that gas-fired power stations get for making electricity. So Mr Miliband is telling us to treble, and freeze, our heating bills at the same time.

“There is not a low-cost energy future out there,” Mr Miliband the Energy Secretary said in July 2009, insisting that we learn to live with higher energy prices. “We can work together on the basis of this price freeze to make the market work in the future. Or you can reinforce in the public mind that you are part of the problem not the solution,” Miliband the Opposition Leader threatened energy companies yesterday.

Ed Miliband along with Tony Blair, and that ultimate case study for any psychology PhD Gordon Brown, were the major players that got Britain into the energy mess that the country now finds itself in, the socialist spin doctors would do well to remember the internet and search engines hold huge repositories of data that make exposing hypocrisy a breeze.

In the fallout post Climategate Ed Miliband was hard at work trying to shore up the Church of Climatology, by declaring war on Climate Sceptics. For those new to the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam, “sceptic” was the term that was originally used, to describe non believers in Climate Religion, as the AGW scam crumbled so “sceptic” has been replaced with “denier”. The implication following the time honored socialist tactic of slurs, is of course Holocaust Denier, which amply demonstrates the lack of any decent moral compass these people have, when to shore up their argument they have to use the greatest human tragedy of the 20th Century to smear their opponents.

In January 2010 Miliband gave an exclusive interview to the Observer:

But in the government’s first high-level recognition of the growing pressure on public opinion, Miliband declared a “battle” against the “siren voices” who denied global warming was real or caused by humans, or that there was a need to cut carbon emissions to tackle it.

Miliband like Blair and Connie Hedegaard, also believes that even if the science is wrong it should be business as usual for the Big Green money making machine.

Socialism, being Green or Liberal is all about feeling good, nothing can stop the ill thought through knee jerk reaction to fixing a problem and the instant fix of feel good endorphins that they so crave. When the knee jerk solution goes to hell in a handcart as it invariably does, the Liberal will always plead it was done for the best of intentions, therefore it is all OK.

Well actually for the record it is not OK, cause and effect, if a Liberal kills you accidentally then it makes no difference to you, what with death being a binary state and all.

Ed Miliband’s desperate and transparently pathetic attempt at vote buying with his promised energy price freeze is just another socialist knee jerk neatly packaged in a hard cart and on course for Hades.

So far Miliband’s attempt to cover up his instrumental role in pushing up energy prices has wiped £2 billion of energy company share prices and caused still more uncertainty in the UK energy market, set against the background of Miliband promising to both freeze and tripe energy bills by 2030.

Stupid most definitely is forever.

  1. The Energy Select Committee, in their report in July, estimated that

    “DECC’s energy and climate change policies would be adding 33% to electricity bills by 2020”

    Does Milibrain now agree the Climate Change Act should be scrapped?

  3. Events are moving quickly know Tory. It’s going to be entertaining to watch the politicians dance and scream. More importantly we need a reliable energy policy based on cheap and reliable energy and national growth…… We need a department of energy to tackle this, and that means we need to remove the CC from DECC.
