In Defence of UK Fracking – John Gelmini

Passions are supposedly running high in Middle England but an examination of the Balcombe protesters is in order.

Most of them were comfortably off middle class, Guardianistas, including ageing rock stars, horse breeders, dog breeders, a former page 3 girl and assorted NIMBIES who do not need to work.

The views of ordinary people who need work,who are on zero hours contracts and who are in 50% of cases unable without extreme difficulty to meet their bills have not been sought whether by the BBC or anyone else.
The reality is that we have a 4% margin of generating capacity which a hard winter or an act of weather warfare by a foreign power would eliminate.

We would then have blackouts, layoffs, permanent economic damage and a worse balance of trade situation as lorries carrying exports would not be able to refuel with diesel as pumps are electrically powered.

Our population is increasing and ageing.

Older power stations are being decommissioned faster than new generating capacity is being brought on stream so we are in a state of fast-moving crisis already.

Professor James Lovelock ,the father of GAIIA theory has upset his pagan,Mother Earth Goddess supporters and people like Caroline Lucas of the Green Party by stating that the only way to stop blackouts from happening is to build more nuclear power stations.

Since these take 15 to 20 years to build we need to plug the gap now.

Conservation, hot rocks, wind turbines, OSPREY tidal power generators,microgeneration and more efficient boilers can help but are insufficient in themselves to plug the shortfall fast enough.

Fracking, albeit with safeguards, is the only thing capable of dealing with the immediate problem and we lack the luxury, thanks to Government ineptitude over decades, of time and lots of other alternatives to consider.

Fracking would weaken the power of the OPEC nations and Russia to bully us over energy supplies and could help to create much needed jobs.

We should not let anyone, armed or otherwise impede progress or prevent the country from becoming prosperous.

The Druids, NIMBIES, leafgazers, nihilists, gnostics, environmentalists who would have us running around in smocks, returning to feudalism and lighting our homes with candles need to be put back in their boxes along with the protesters at Balcombe who are a vociferous minority who speak only for themselves.

Gay Marriage, Faith and the Thin End of the Wedge – John Gelmini

The other day I re-blogged an excellent article entitled Faith leaders demand gay marriage rethink published in the Telegraph. I received a thoughtful response from John Gelmini which I am re-blogging below:

Gay Marriage, Faith and the Thin End of the Wedge – John Gelmini

Gay Marriage is the thin end of the wedge and is the Trojan Horse for American style no fault divorce, as promoted by the Head of the Family Law Division, cohabitee agreements which will result in the property becoming jointly owned after 6 months proof of residency via receipt of mail even though one cohabiting partner may not have contributed a penny.

Once this happens, everyone will be made to be responsible for whoever they are living with and the dole bill will be slashed to a fraction of its present level.

Male and test tube pregnancies will follow, as will cloning and Judeo Christian ethics, the basis of English Common Law for nearly 1000 years will disappear in favor of agnosticism, atheism, Sharia Law practiced selectively in Muslim areas, agnosticism, mysticism, Druidism and a massive increase in Satanism (currently tracking at 500,000 adherents including the pop establishment and the Glitterati such as Peaches Geldof who follow OTO (Alastair Crowley’s version).

Children, and I speak from personal experience, need a mother and a father and some certainty as to the way things work and the building blocks of a stable society which are marriage, family and children will be damaged.
Look at all our major industrial competitors and any stable society where people are prospering and every one of them values marriage and family and is making rapid economic and societal progress.

We are falling behind and eventually will disappear from the face of the earth because our replacement rate is 1.88 as opposed to 2.4 which is the minimum needed for continued survival of the race.

For me, this will not matter but Gay Marriage, low rates of family formation, Englishmen buying houses at 37, too many singletons, too many gay men and woman,  is going to make the saying ”The meek (Old Hebrew for many) to inherit the earth” come true.
