GLOBAL WARMING - The Sun provides us with an infinite supply of energy upon which all life on earth depends. Our blue planet has experienced many climate changes in its history, including the ice age when amazing creatures such a the Dinosaurs and Mammoths suffered extinction. Man is artificially warming the planet by burning fossil fuels in some kind of economic arms race that cannot be sustained and must be brought under control if we are not to extinguish the lives of many more species such as the Polar Bears in the Arctic.
The United Kingdom is a democracy with a Sovereign head of state that is presently HRH Queen Elizabeth (Windsor) II. The King or Queen of England appoints a Prime Minister to run the country for them. In turn, the Prime Minister assembles a cabinet of MPs to run the country during their term of (administration) office to run the country for the Royal head of state.
In other countries they have Kings, Queens and Presidents to run their countries - sometimes also Prime Ministers and dictators. One President who stands out as achieving a lot in the USA is Barack Obama. Others would be George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
Mostly, the United Kingdom gets on with other countries. Wouldn't it be nice if we got along with all other nations? With two World Wars already under out belt you'd imagine that the world did not want to fight any more. In terms of DNA we are all related to each other, so we are brothers and sisters. In terms of geographical boundaries and political and religious beliefs, we may as well be different species when it comes right down to it.
UK SLAVERY POLICIES - SWEATSHOP BRITAIN
In truth in the UK we have economic policies based, in essence, on slavery. Slavery being where one human being is shackled to another to toil for the slaver for little reward. Where there is not enough cheap labour to underpin the society that has risen from the ashes of a Ruling Class ideology borne of our Empire days. We have allowed and encouraged immigrants to work at significantly below the minimum wage to underpin colonial losses - and that brings us to fiscal policies that are flawed.
It's not all bad, there are some rays of sunshine amongst the Brexit in-fighting, that frankly, is embarrassing our country. The UK has taken centre-stage concerning climate change, even with fence-sitters like Michael Gove, who cannot afford to be a man with passion, or potentially lose his seat if his gut feeling is wrong. But, playing it safe will never get the job done. So well done to Nicola Sturgeon and Jeremy Corbyn for standing firm on principles.
THE MINIMUM WAGE
A Minimum Wage in a truly Equitable (fair) Society is one where every working person can afford to live a life where that person can enjoy a reasonable standard of living and retire at a reasonable age to enjoy the fruits of their labours.
We must then have affordable housing for all that only absorbs a percentage of the working wage/salary, such that the remaining proportion of income may support saving for retirement, transportation and being able to afford to bring up a family is secure circumstances. At the moment our society falls far short of these ideals with an increase in homeless people sleeping rough. This can only be blame on policies that are not working. Mainly because the present system is geared to keeping the Ruling Class in comfort no matter what it takes - even the subjugation of a good percentage of those coming out of education into the cauldron of life. Subjugation, restraint or however else you may care to describe it is the modern form of Slavery. We call this version of slavery: Financial Slavery.
At the moment is you earned the minimum wage, and ignoring any uplift from well heeled relatives, you would be paying high rents to a landlord that would rob you of any chance of a decent life. You would be caught in what is called the Poverty Trap.
This cannot be a way to structure a society that is humane and caring.
The cure when it comes to political and religious misgivings is education and information sharing. The cures when it comes to national borders are energy and food security. Both food and energy security are high international priorities to keep the world stable. Hence, a sustainable planet is what we should be aiming for. One with as few prejudices as possible and a higher level of cultural understanding. At all costs we must never allow a World War situation to develop again. This is where Homeland Security comes in, to allow us to recognise when there is a potential danger situation and work together to resolve any matter before it escalates into any kind of demonstration or civil revolt, such as may happen when governing policies are so obviously wrong in Human Rights terms that the citizens are driven to state their case in a manner that is likely to get attention.
WHO COMES FIRST - Thomas Jefferson got it right, but the founding fathers had to escape to America to reach their societal objectives where each man worked for himself and his family, sometimes without any government support in the wilderness. Why would such a man need to contribute to a government? He wouldn't of course, but in the UK today many people look to our elected representatives for support and leadership. In the end, the American rebels defeated their British taskmasters and created the United States of America. Thomas Paine
The following is a list of MPs that have contributed to the success of the UK, or in some cases made poor decisions that have cost the country either in monetary terms or in the matter of world standing. Whether good or bad performers, these are the Members of Parliament who matter. Mostly, MPs are dedicated hard working types who do their best to represent and cater for the ordinary citizen, striving for a fairer society for all. We must though report on the Good, Bad and Ugly in politics. For, by doing so the voters can define for themselves the kind of future they want for themselves and their children. This is on the basis that election promises will be delivered. Unfortunately, all too often they are not. One Prime Minister that got the job done was Sir Winston Churchill.

ABOUT THE CLIMATE CHANGE TRUST
Our job is to help officials to work towards a Circular Economy where they sometimes lose their way because of the day to day chores such as bin emptying and road sweeping. These are important functions but housekeeping tends to cloud issues and clutter a desk that should be tasked for a secure future. Our job is then to help those in local and national Government to focus on the important issues of our time.
WHAT IS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
A circular economy is one that is equitable - and for that reason sustainable. The "Circular Economy" is a United Nations objective and a European Commission target that is generally endorsed by most other nations around the world. The fact that we may be exiting Europe with Brexit high on the political agenda, does not diminish the duty we owe to protect the natural world from human waste. Just as importantly, we need to provide affordable housing for future generations and aim towards a society where not so many people can exploit the system for personal gain. That is not to say that businesses should not make a profit. Profits are needed for forward investment, provided that they are not the fruit of immoral earnings. Here we are talking about financial slavery and the modern poverty trap created by the renting society we have created.
We hope to show politicians that clean energy and high quality pre-fabricated housing can help them to achieve their political ambitions. We are advocated of clean transport such as electric vehicles and we want to do what we can to help politicians understand the full import of plastic packaging as it affects our future food security.
These are the important issues that we hope to bring into focus for the benefit of all the citizens of the United Kingdom. Politicians looking for an easy ride who try to focus attention on issues of lesser importance to carry them though their terms of office - leaving the core issues outstanding for the next guy - should not be entering the political area. We need climate change gladiators, not kittens pretending to be Bengal Tigers.
