I think we should note that Extinction Rebellion are looking to blockade the Port of Dover on Saturday.
Whilst I think their protests are important – and also usually clever and impressive – just look at this poignant picture of a funeral march for the climate a couple of months ago in Exeter, further described here.
The Dover protest might, additionally, be a small dress rehearsal for Brexit.
And that is of course where Brexit has a plus – it is not ‘Global Britain’, but Britain, locally, that should be doing as much as possible for itself.
Though we have still to recognise the difficulty of that with regard to that real ‘staff of life’ which is food.
Let’s be frank: we really should be using our windpower to export electricity energy for others – in order that we can eat.
