Britain has a pothole problem. They have sprung up everywhere and for some reason they aren’t getting filled. This is dangerous for road users, whether car drivers or those on motocycles or bicycles. In many of the Daily Mail’s comment sections, there are folks full of ire that we are spending money on bombing Syria when we can’t even get our potholes filled!
But sadly as with all the nudge tactics of our rulers, the potholes are just that – a nudge. Local authorities state they don’t have the money to repair roads, and this is the beginning, surely, of those roads being deemed “unsustainable.” UN Agenda 2030’s Sustainable development goals will require “unsustainable” things to be defunded, leaving people with the stark choice of whether to stay living in rural areas where they get fewer and fewer services or move to a smart city. The headline says it all:
The National Farmer’s Union has just stated that:
‘Some local authorities have suggested they don’t have enough money to maintain the entire network of rural roads. We fear this could lead to closures and huge disruption for local communities.
‘Farmers and other people in rural areas would be forced to make huge diversions to make journeys that are currently half a mile or so in length, but closures would lead to motorists having to loop round much longer routes.’
And of course if they’re having to drive further that’s also unsustainable – many rural folk are low waged, and travelling further will only make the choice to move to a stack and pack high-rise in a smart city ever easier to make.
Which is what the government wants. They want the rural communities to be lost, and they have an agenda to bring that in, using carefully couched language, some of which has rather a cold tone to it:
Leave no one behind? What about those who WANT to live in rural communities? Hmmm – you can read the full report from the UK government here: Link
So I have written to the chairman of my local branch of the NFU today to put this to him, and I will let you know if I get a response. The NFU has a voice, I told him, and they must use it! They must come out against Agenda 2030 while there is still time to stop it.
God Bless you
