Have Your Say: Is our country for sale?
DAVID Cameron may be a "nice kind of guy" having attempted to model himself on Tony Blair, but leadership and consistent decision- making are not his forte.
First, against his better judgment, he sells out to UKIP and "the market solves everything" right wing over Europe.
Then at the beginning of last week he and his cronies told us to shop around to keep our domestic fuel bills down although all the big energy firms are putting up their tariffs by similar amounts!
He then hails a new deal with a largely nationalised French nuclear industry and the Chinese government as good for the country, although it guarantees them prices double the current energy prices for 30 years and no doubt the taxpayer will also have to pay up for cost of waste disposal and if anything goes seriously wrong!
He finishes off the week by suggesting the best way to keep current energy prices down is to withdraw financial support from the most vulnerable, together with support for renewables and energy efficiency which can deliver much cheaper long-term prices than nuclear if he is prepared to invest in their development.
Mr Cameron seems to have lost his way.
Are we to be part of Europe or are we making yet further steps towards becoming a client state, where what is left of the country is up for sell to anyone?
