Let’s have Policy Board outside of the constraints of the Government machine – and a commission on what Britain should look like post-Brexit.
The tactic is the product of a generation of failed energy policies. But imported supply is set to become more expensive, not less.
There is a huge cost to the NHS and social care services when landlords fail to provide energy efficient homes.
To hit our decarbonisation targets, to restore a once-proud industry, and to support renewables, we need to expand conventional and innovative nuclear technologies.
To reduce investment in infrastructure or R&D is to take away from the future – just as surely as running up unsustainable debt does.
It’s not just a matter of output: developing this pioneering industry would support tens of thousands of British jobs and demonstrate global leadership.
Michael Gove has made a great start at DEFRA, but from farm subsidies to onshore wind there is plenty more the Party can do.
There are some areas where continued jurisdiction for the ECJ is defensible and may, pragmatically, be the best route forward.
It would achieve real competition, incentivise efficiency and bring prices down for the majority (companies would be forced to compete for new customers or wither fast).
“Let us win this argument for a new generation and defend free and open markets with all our might.”

The arrogant behaviour of the EU so far, bordering on the deliberately offensive, is a bluff that we need to call.
Instead of chasing targets for their own sake, we will be free to explore new opportunities for energy supply, jobs and environmental improvements.
The suggestion here seems to be to keep current and future EU law – and thus the ECJ. We would accept EU laws as they developed without a say.
