Spotlight: International Political & Environmental Folly: Issue 5 by Daniel Tissington

This work sets out to show that governments internationally are taking too much in terms of taxes and, consequently, leave their “supporters” unable to pay for the necessities of life. The politicians blame the banks for irresponsible lending, where both parties are thought to be equally at fault here. Politicians also seem to have gotten the “wrong end of the stick” with regard to climate change, its causes, and the tragic consequences for humanity. This work sets out an explanation of said changes and offers solutions to overcome the phenomenon. Political shortcomings appear to be because our leaders are mainly listening to advisers who have little to do with the problems of the Man in Street.

This work concludes by showing how to correct the exposed political shortcomings by the simplified but effective use of the ballot box.

 

About the Author

Born in 1925, the author served in The Royal Navy and was loaned to the Royal Canadian Navy during WW2. He and his wife Joan have three daughters.

Returning to England, the author settled in Hertfordshire and was employed in research, military, medical, industrial electronics, nucleonics, and avionics. On retiring, the author relocated to Dorset where he obtained his pilot’s license and later his own Cessna Aircraft for recreational use. He also indulged in another hobby, horology. Later still, an attempt to relocate to his Carribbean retreat ended due to ill health. The author underwent spinal surgery in January 2011 and hopes to renew his recreational flying in due course.

 

 

Excerpt 

“Storm in a teacup? No way. The author has a file of data given out by the Woodland Trust and it mentions the cost of planting a tree is in the order of £10 sterling per tree. Thinking about it, one has to include Nursery cost, transport costs and administration cost, so the projected cost of £10 a tree might well be reasonable. But I question the cost of 12 million trees at £120 million versus the cost at say 16 trees per acre = £460,000 or, allowing for an excessive 25% loss, £575,000. Added to that figure is the hidden cost of collecting the taxes, inter-governmental transfer costs and administration costs of money transfer arrangements to The Woodland Trust!  And this projection omits to cost the necessary thinning that may (should) be carried out!  This, reader, is one example of where YOUR hard earned cash and taxes go.”
