My new old friend Alok Sharma is in the news again. I haven’t heard from him since November last year. . ( You can see our exchange in the Archive. ). He was doing sterling work at the Department of Buisness, Work and Energy, where he did so well at closing down business and eliminating work, that we didn’t need so much energy.
As a result of his great success, particularly with energy conservation, prime Minister Bodj promoted him to a new role leading the way on climate change. Britain is to host a world conference on climate change in November this year and Alok has been charged with championing the UK’s leadership role in showing the rest of the world how to do it. His new official title is President of COP26, so it sounds like he will be putting in a few shifts for the Metropolitan Police from time to time.
So far he is off to a good start, with a little help from Coronapop.
- No fuel is required for aeroplanes now the sky’s are shut down.
- Domestic travel is also severely curtailed during the lock down.
- Cross-border travel has ground to a standstill due to the extra paperwork and the need to test drivers repeatedly.
- Domestic heating is unnecessary now that windows have to be open 24/7 to ventilate homes.
Alok has another idea too :-
Bodj electric cars will be offered free to the world.
This will revolutionise travel everywhere, especially now that the car has been modified by Sir James Dyson to run on 4 triple A batteries. Of course this does limit its range to 550 yards, so you will need to carry some spares until you can get to a corner shop.
A complimentary armoured one is being given to President Biden to cement our ‘special relationship’ with the United States. Ones are also being offered to all European leaders provided the learn to drive on the right side of the road.
