Imagine when people are forced to go all electric and even have their cars inoperable as they won’t be able to charge them.

We are going backwards, whilst those who are enforcing this will have several cars to choose from, have a home large enough to house a street full of people consuming megawatts of power, yet are telling us to cut down on energy and wear jumpers, as they dive into a heated pool, followed by a steam shower or hot tub.

SEE how you are being played here, under the noble guise of ‘saving the planet’ as they use a disabled child to push their mantra.
