Call for change
IN reply to my letter, Tony Feetenby is quite right to ask how are we going to close the trade gap when we have no industry left.
The answer is to produce at least 65 per cent of what we consume in this country and restrict imports; that is why I created the 6535 campaign to bring back industry to this country.
I am looking for like-minded people to promote the idea.
We don’t have much of a chance at the moment when we have a government elected by the people to represent its donors to the party, not the people. Also in Europe we have faceless people telling us how to run our own country manipulated by multi-national corporations.
As you say, Tony, there is no way to close the trade gap as we are. We will just have shops full of foreign goods with many people unable to buy them because they don’t have a job.
Look around you and you can see a country dying on its feet. We need change and we need it now.
