Do you honestly think that we would have had all of the billions of pounds of private investment in our electricity generation & distribution if Comrade Corbyn had re-nationalised it all?

The unions would have run it into the ground with endless wages demands & strikes, just like the 1970s followed by power cuts & three day weeks
Tory troll. Most of the investment has come from the state! Removed

Putting your abuse aside for the moment, but which part of 'privatised utillities' don't you understand?

And if indeed the investment had come from 'the state' then you actually mean from 'Tory governments' (assuming that you also consider Messrs Blair & Brown to be 'Tories' too)

Yawn. Get over Corbyn.

He's no longer Labour leader.

Find something new to whinge about.

Yawn.
OK so how is Sir Keir Hindsight doing after his first year in offoce?

Behind in the leadership & Westminster polls by 10% each

Soon he will be back to where Comrade Corbyn was!

Typical isn't it that the BBC allow false claims but removes accurate ones. So much for democracy!

At least you recognise the truth of what I said about it being Labour who had put the money into the government investment which has been used by the private sector.
I rather think that the BBC moderators removed your comment because of the childish abuse & insults rather than for your 'truth'

And under a Conservative government too.

That will have the Guardian readers choking on their avocado toast and lattes this morning.
"In spite of" is the phrase you were struggling to find whilst you were spluttering into your Carling this morning. Removed

No thought for the migratory and feeding birds, or the cetaceans whose habit we are destroying?

Great news. Get ready for the paid by big oil trolls to come here and post some FUD...

Why are we still building nuclear? Astronomical cost, dubious safety, never an exit plan. Ministers must have their bank balances being increased as usual. Removed

Where is your evidence about "dubious safety"? Oh, I see! Its just a throw away comment based on something that happened in the USSR 40 years ago!

safety is largely resolved (Chernobyl and fukishima are bad examples, experimentation & earthquakes, respectively). But the cost and waste are still huge hurdles that just aren't worth it.

Excellent news!

For years and years the oilheads were bleating that renewables were a waste of time & would never contribute significantly to our energy needs etc. They are and were wrong.
You appear not to grasp the essential weakness of the current system and the requirement for back-up from other forms of generation. So maybe you are an airhead if that is how you wish to carry out arguments. Removed

That argument about renewables needing backup doesn't hold water. For example, you can use reservoirs (or even smaller local units) to store energy by pumping water uphill when you have surplus generation, and then running it down again when you need the energy. There are many other ways to store energy.

Your statement had nothing to do with her statement. Perhaps you should learn to read before you call other people airheads.

I do love it when people assume green energy firms are blind to this. That they haven't at least thought about it. With the advent of EVs there will be 20-30 million large batteries ready to take the the peak off power surges. Biomass, hydro and green fuel units are being produced. Smart meters allow for tariffs that encourage non peak usage. It's endless. We're going green so get with the program
Any body for human population controls?
I'm taking names...

I know
More Wong numbers than a Hong Kong telephone directory
I'm going to get erased
who cares...

it is, kind of, a valid point
but it's not so much the numbers
but the damaging contradictions

wealthier has equated to stable population
wealthier, of course, has also resulted in greater consumption
