We finally seem to be getting into policy differences…
Mr Huhne called for a switch in the burden of taxation with higher environmental taxes. He said: “That will, of course, hurt. It is actually going to be painful for some people, for example through their fuel bills, on people who are heavy users of petrol and other fuels.
My God! A politician talking about environmental policy and not pretending that all it will do is create extra jobs in the environmental sector and improve people’s quality of life? We live in heady times!
The consensus on Chris Huhne’s launch appears to be that it was very good. Unfortunately, the BBC decided not to cover it so I can’t see for myself.
