    Ah well....Wales, indeed all of the former United Kingdom, will shortly be naught but a province of France. Once PM May is deposed and Red Jeremy is in #10 the fall will be rapid. England will be worse off but Wales? They'll quickly roll over and learn French. After all, they already think like Surrender Monkeys.

    Yeah, when the Temperature over in Jolly Ole Britain starts to rise and all those blokes start turning on the A/C and there isnt enough power for everyone, you can bet the queen, her horde of ill tempered brats and parliament will get their cooling, while telling the rest of you scum to suffer. For queen and country, right?

    The only threat to me is you can play disingenuous and pretend all you want.

    Seems like the UK has been surviving without brains for years.

    Coal is American made source of cheap energy that I think UK imports. The clock is supposed to be ticking for coal. Eventually, coal is to be replaced nuclear, hydro, solar and other sources of energy, but for now it's still PRACTICAL. UK has reduced its use of coal, but still uses it.

    How many of those hours were fueled by American wood-pellets being used to fire the coal plants instead of just co-firing them?

    How many coal plants are in Great Britain? I'll help you, seven are still in operation. Do you mind if we continue to mine and sell coal?

    How is that coal clock ticking for China and the other billions of people using animal dung and peat for heat and cooking?
