The collapse of the car industry, you would think, would have the greenies dancing with joy at the prospect of fewer of these mobile emitters being produced.

On the other hand, EU governments - which are nominally supportive of the greenie agenda – are having second thoughts about standing idly by while the industry sheds jobs by the hundred thousands. With 12 million jobs at stake and EU-wide sales down 14.5 percent in October, the EU commission has organised a €5 billion support package – mainly in soft loans – to see the industry through the worst.

Back of the envelope calculation-about 50 miles per US gallon. This is literally going to kill a lot of people.

“Half the harm in the world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm,but the harm doesn’t interest them. Or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves.

- T.S.Eliot

"Os bós e xenerosos
a nosa voz entenden,
e con arroubo atenden
o noso rouco son,
máis só os iñorantes,
e féridos e duros,
imbéciles e escuros
non os entenden, non.

"The good and generous
our voice understand,
and with determination they attend
our harsh sound,
but only the ignoramus,
and wounded and hard,
idiot and dark
don't understand us, they do not.

An Autonomous Community might be the way to go. PDT_Armataz_01_37

Spain has been quoted to be "an extraordinarily decentralised country", with the central government accounting for just 18% of public spending; the regional governments 38%, the local councils 13% and the social-security system the rest. Extract the public purse from Darling's nervous hands and Gordon's got no dosh, John. Know wot I mean?

Regards,

Perry
