With interest rates so low, Now is the time to borrow for infrastructure projects.

The flow on effects to the economy and government coffers will be enormous.

If they want a double effect, they should look at spending on renewables and associated infrastructure.

Drastically reducing the input costs of power will be the productivity game changer.

The only issue with taking more renewables into homes means less spread the costs of upkeep and upgrades o the network. They need huge government energy projects that keep the infrastructure in government hands. At the moment they build it and give it away pretty much free to power companies to profit from. A really sensibly energy policy would help with non government investment so that we don't have to do it all.

I reckon Trump is trodding on any shoots the markets put up with his trade wars and posturing. He's uncertainty and instability personified. His erratic diplomacy means the rest of the world feel his ripple effect too.
Yeh he’s funny and talks some rubbish, China is paying huge hahah. He’s playing to his crowd but in reality he’s quite measured in his responses to important matters. The US couldn’t just keep letting China walk all over them, that had to end. Yep it’s inevitable that we’ll feel the heat but in reality he’s the US president and you can’t please everyone.

I’m still not a fan but really after the muller investigation and his appearances if people haven’t caught on to the democrats scam then they never will. I’d be more worried about what the Clinton campaign, the previous administration plus the FBI have pulled. Really should be a never again moment for the US but my god the press are so divided and partisan it’s a real worry and not just in the US.

My eldest is an industry analyst, he’s currently writing a report including predictions for the energy sector for the next twelve months. It’s limited in scope and based largely on data collected from the industry in the previous year but interesting enough.

I'm seriously looking at running as an independent at the next election.

Instead of "keep the bastardy honest",my slogan will be "put the bastards in their place"...
Get pluggs to run your social media accounts. Put me in charge of immigration. We’ll fix it. And if it don’t need fixing we’ll break it.
