  • We need more planes - letter to Richard Branson
    Weeds in Britain can be eliminated without the controversial use of GMO technology simply by concreting over vast tracts of land New concrete runways therefore warrant our support by virtue of their permanent mulching properties alone At the same time there is a compelling case for us all to enjoy the benefits of concretisation by personal investment in the shares of companies such as Tarmac now owned by Anglo American plc WE NEED MORE GREEN BEANS FROM AFRICA The importance of eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day is now well accepted Already there are frequent water shortages in the south of England with draconian hose pipe bans often being imposed We need to increase our sourcing of those water hungry crops grown in Africa instead There is huge potential for expansion to other traditionally British crops such as lettuce cabbage and brussel sprouts which could also be flown in for our greater convenience FLIGHTS ARE NOT CHEAP ENOUGH Whilst significant improvements have been made in recent years and many families are enjoying several holidays a year abroad it is still not viable to go away every weekend Moreover it still costs more to fly to Paris than to catch my local bus to Ipswich though on the plus side the planes to Paris are a lot more frequent GLOBAL NOT LOCAL We must get our transport priorities right local transport particularly in rural areas is an unnecessary luxury after all we all know that fox hunting is the only issue that matters in the countryside today Existing government policy of reduced investment in buses trains and boats and reliance on market forces should be reinforced with a significant increase in investment in air traffic infrastructure WE MUST WIN THE RACE TO BE CO2 WORLD LEADERS Europe has a lot of catching up to do if we are to take our rightful place as the world s top CO2 producer the USA are clear Number One with China coming up fast from behind Our economy depends on keeping up with the first division world polluters Expansion of air traffic offers a huge opportunity to do this quickly efficiently and at low cost NOISE POLLUTION MUST BE DROWNED OUT The case for this speaks for itself 2 HOURS EXTRA SHELF LIFE ON CUT FLOWERS Our 1500 million retail market for cut flowers needs to be supported Many of the flowers we buy are grown in India which as a result has become a very important market for the pesticides and artificial fertilisers produced by British companies at very attractive profit margins Why spoil our own landscape and undermine the highly effective agricultural set aside system when flowers can be flown in from all over the world whilst at the same time supporting the British chemical industry More local airports could lead to an increased shelf life for flowers of at least 2 hours a great stride forward when you consider the investment in carbon and chemicals to get these
