Jeremy Clarkson has discussed the energy crisis the UK is experiencing right now in his latest column for The Sun.
Last week, a power cable that transfers electricity from France to Britain was severed by a large fire, and since then the energy sector has been crippled with many companies struggling to stay afloat or ramping up their prices.
The Grand Tour presenter added his comments to the situation in his latest column:
“We haven’t even built our new nuclear power station yet because the few eco-loons who aren’t currently glued to the M25 are running about on the proposed site finding voles.
“Anyone with half a brain could have seen this coming.
“That if we nail our colours to the mast of green power, events would inevitably gang up to ensure that one day, we’d have none at all.”
He added that he isn’t confident that we won’t have any power cuts before listing everything that could be affected by such a thing.
“The only people who’d be unaffected are the woodland weirdos you see on Countryfile who make a living by boiling wood to make hoes.”
He agreed that there would be “some downsides” to not having electricity, but recalled the powercut of 1974, describing it as “wasn’t all bad”.♦ Follow Grand Tour Nation on Google News
