Britain needs to regulate trade and commerce and employment methods in order to reduce carbon emissions.
Reorganising Britain's Economy
British Party campaigns for regulating trade and commerce in Britain, as well as methods of employment, to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions. This policy requires that agricultural and industrial production should be located as close as possible to the markets it is meant to supply. Road transport from the centres of production to the retail outlets need to be kept as short as possible, so by reducing fuel consumption and carbon emission. Regulation should ensure that there are sufficient small factories and farm estates at district and county level to accommodate the local requirements of the population as far as reasonably possible.
The Tiny Global Village
Currently, almost all textiles and electronics sold in Britain are produced in Asia, and more food is imported to Britain than is produced here. While it is a known fact that almost all electronic inventions came about in Britain, just about everything that functions on electricity is now imported. The same applies for technology in the textile industry, for which Britain is world famous.
It appears that the blueprints of whatever invention comes out of a British research centre are exported lock, stock and barrel to Asia, so that our Country has to import the products stemming from these technological innovations, while our factories have been systematically closed down. In Britain, the manufacture from the Tiny Global Village commonly has the imprint “made in China”, and the unemployment that we receive in return is added to with the cost of fuel consumption to transport the goods from the other end of the globe.
Carbon emissions do not seem an issue in the Tiny Global Village, and climatic change due to chemical combustion appears an irrelevant factor, as does unemployment and, equally, the glaring trade deficit that our Country simply cannot afford. Every day, tens of millions of barrels of crude oil are extracted, and then refined, to be transported thousands of miles in various directions across the world. The immense pollution deriving from the chemical processes that take place in oil refineries and in petrol combustion contribute to the destruction of nature and to the bankruptcy of our economy.
Every year, Britain imports food in the value of tens of billions of pounds, yet much of this could have been produced locally. Our Country is fertile, we have a fair measure of sun and rain, but the Government, both at central and local level, is intent on destroying ever more farm and woodland and using it for building hundreds of thousands of homes to accommodate mass immigration.
In line with the doctrines of the Tiny Global Village, millions of workers from Eastern Europe come and go, finding jobs in Britain that often are offered only to Eastern Europeans, and sending their incomes back home.
Economy out of Control
The British economy has spiraled out of orbit, there is absolutely no regulation on carbon emissions to define how goods may be reasonably transported from production site to retail location, or how far workers should travel from home to work. As the situation stands now, both the simplest and the most sophisticated items are imported from the Far East, as if a cartel had been imposed with the specific intention of destroying both our economy and the world, through economic bankruptcy and through mass pollution by way of carbon combustion.
And people travel all the way from Eastern Europe to Britain to go to work, while millions of British people have to walk, on average, only half a mile once a week to sign on at the job centre, or simply depend on whatever available savings they or their family may have in order to make ends meet.
In a functional economy, one would expect these people to be walking or traveling to work in their own area, rather than workers arriving by plane at the airport and getting farm and factory jobs, while the local people who could have done this work have to sign on.
Regulation on carbon emissions and ecological footprint – from home to workplace to retail outlet – require the restructuring of the British economy, and this is one of British Party's fundamental policies.
