France on Tuesday repeated its threat to cut the UK off from energy supplies.

A UK government document in July said that 47% of the country's electricity imports were from France.

This just shows what a sh!tshower the UK is in.
If nearly half of the power to the country comes from a foreign nation that nation supplying the power has a the recipients by the short and curlies.

France Screwing The UK

This is part of Thatchers legacy of selling off the family silver.


We were once a proud nation who led the world in the industrial revolution. We gave the world so much.

I am ashamed to admit I am British.
I'm still proud to call myself a scouser though

We are seeing the world heading towards global conflicts that are very similar to modern versions of what sparked 2 previous world wars. All that it will take to push it fully into that certain future is a country attempting to conquer a sovereign neighbor... such as China deciding now is the time to seize the sovereign nation of Taiwan.

When a country has to rely on power supplies from another country they are screwed!

It's do as we want or we cut you off.

I had no idea that much electricity came from out of country suppliers !

When the lights go off in many countries the people can be happy (as they freeze to death) they are doing their part on cutting back on the CO2 emissions.

I wonder sometimes if a certain percentage of the human race has decided to off itself... they are doing a good job of it either way.

Elecltricity is now being supplied from Norway in a joint venture with The UK.




The world's longest under-sea electricity cable, transferring green power between Norway and the UK, has begun operation. The 450-mile (725km) cable connects Blyth in Northumberland with the Norwegian village of Kvilldal. At full 1,400 megawatt capacity it will import enough hydro-power to supply 1.4 million homes,

National Grid said. National Grid Ventures president Cordi O'Hara said it was a "remarkable feat of engineering". She added: "We had to go through mountains, fjords and across the North Sea to make this happen. "North Sea Link (NSL) is also a great example of two countries working together to maximise their renewable energy resources for mutual benefit.

At this point with the media articles I am now completely...



Maybe it's me that's nuts but I have never witnessed the level of fearmongering that's happening right now on all ends.

It might just not be working on me anymore, the program, like it should (need my government mandate reset maybe) but im turning into this guy here just looking around at the (sh*t splattering mind muck being vomited into peoples heads daily) news right now...



"Oi France, just geeze the leccy ya d*ck, now!!"

What a lot of nonsense.

Doesn't Boris have the balls to call Macron and make him an offer he cannot refuse? I can think of several but the most obvious would be returning all the "refugees" to France and turning any future boats away. The Frogs can't afford that. They already have a big problem on their hands. a reply to: nolabel

is that enough to make up for the amount France is talking of cutting, or is it just a fart in a hurricane?

We'll cook our food with wood and fire if we have to.

France can f$k right off. Are they not content with tormenting their own people?

...preaching to the choir. This is why folks in the USA have been calling for energy independence from Saudi Arabia for decades. When we have to rely on some other nation for our oil lifeblood, it creates a situation whereby our leaders tolerate attacks like 911 because losing access to oil was feared to be worse than watching 3,000 civilians murdered thanks to one country's religious murder cult psychopathy.

Does this mean 47% of just the imports or 47% of all the power the UK uses? That could be a big difference. I hope the UK produces most of what they need and can tell the French to take a hike.

That is awesome.

What worries me though is that with the push for EV 's, our electric bills are just going to keep increasing until electricity is unaffordable for the average Dave.

Theres a video doing the rounds of an 'African' migrant in Ireland laughing about white Irish quickly being replaced... So is England, Scotland, Wales, France, etc, etc. The west is being burned down. The replacement population is from the worst, not the best... to accelerate the downfall of the worlds white middle class. "The great reset". Then will come; "build back better".

If "the worst" think they are going to survive once their usefulness is finished, they are to be sorely mistaken.

Good. Free Market.

Unforeseen consequences.

a reply to: MDDoxs

Wouldn't that be a controlled market? Where the consequences are planned out and deliberately imposed on others for their actions in the 'free market'?

A free market would be the UK decided to look elsewhere for energy, due to costs, or better 'energy' etc, and France reacting and directing their energy to someone else while the UK does a deal with someone else, everyone wins in a sort of sense.

This is a political move. Not within the realm of 'free markets'.

You want to talk sh!tshower? We sold our energy independence to China because democrats. Not to mention China holds nearly half of our national debt, and they are buying up farmland here like crazy.

Wrong. United States citizens own well over half our debt.
