Great moments in regulation

Dan Mitchell reports from DC. Just regulate it!

And in France.

According to the IEA, France is sitting on 80% of Europe’s frackable gas – enough to keep the country self-sufficient in energy for centuries. But the Macron government has just banned, not only fracking, but any extraction of any fossil fuels whatsoever on mainland France.

Brits screwed by the EU.

Electricity prices could double after the government suspended the UK’s system for ensuring there is a back-up power supply, experts have warned. The wholesale power price could hit £121 per megawatt hour (MWh) by next winter unless the so-called capacity market is reinstated, according to a report — risking higher energy bills for millions. The government suspended the capacity market on Thursday after the European Court of Justice (ECJ) found it breached state-aid rules.

Bonus. Now its getting serious in France, lorry drivers join the resistance. Another win for Trump! Macron decides to thumb his nose at Trump on environmentalism and see what happens.

    Sacre bleu…the peasants are revolting!

    Macron’s poll numbers are now down to 25%, which is less than half of Trump’s.

    This is the left’s version of “let the market decide”?

    Theresa May still PM? What a damning indictment of the Conservative Party.

    Imagine what Enoch would have thought of the Tories of today.

    Europe is slowly waking up…. Meanwhile in Australia…………

    $10 says Macron will become a cheese eating surrender monkey and reverse his environmental policies.

    France has not been civilised for some time now.

    France revolting…?
    Nothing new there …. history and sanity would say they have always been revolting.
    Find a royal rort being run and you will find a frog beneath

    We are not a major supplier of yellow cake. Our govt should encourage the anti nuke mob in Canada to boost our share of supply. France uses about 10500 tons of U / year. Nuclear power: France.

    Liberal party staffers have been known to say “ a government decision to not intervene is a market distortion itself!”

    The protesters — who are made up overwhelmingly of people from outside Paris — accuse the French leader of being a champion for the urban elite who has little interest in the countryside.

    Welcome to The Hunger Games.

  13. From the link:

    The “yellow vest” demonstrators — named after the hi-vis jackets they have adopted as their emblem — promised to continue the disruption over the coming days and weeks.

    I love that bit – the government passes yet another petty regulation to torment the Proles with, and they wear it as a symbol of protest.

    We are watching the fall of western civilisation in real time.

    Minor change but you’re right. And not just in France. The future for our children and their society looks so bleak. The international Leftists have planned well and pervaded most institutions and enterprises. The only bright light is in the USA but even that will be extinguished in a few short years. If Trump is not replaced with a like-minded person, the war will be lost. Western civilisation (as we know it) will be a distant, and ridiculed, memory.

    Just east of the Paris end of Collins St Melbourne lies (this word chosen carefully) the State Parliament and State Offices.

    The Andrews Labo(u)r Pardy of Victoriastan is campaigning (quietly) to repeat that piece of futility here.

    To all Victorians: this weekend vote the dictators out before you lose even that so-called right.

  16. Micron is a virtue signaller, just like his counterpart in Canada. What is it with the French? Can’t they see the mistakes Germany made is blowing up in their faces?

    I hope the lorry drivers beat this idiotic little shit to a pulp.

    No. These people are scum and are no allies of ours. The French populist is literally the worst kind of populist on earth. An astonishingly large proportion of bad stuff we experience today is French in origin. And the Germans are the best students of the French.
