FOR years The Sun railed against successive governments’ scandalous neglect of our energy security.
Russia’s war proved us right. Britain was gravely exposed.
4We welcome the reshuffle establishing a new energy departmentCredit: GettySo we welcome the reshuffle establishing a new department dedicated to it.
Oddly, its other mandate is Net Zero.
Why? Energy security and Net Zero are currently incompatible.
Without several new nuclear power stations we will always need oil and gas because solar and wind is intermittent.
When will they get the go-ahead?
We also hope new boss Grant Shapps leaves eco-zealotry to the opposition.
Electric cars and heat pumps are both unaffordable on ordinary incomes and arguably far less practical and effective than what they are meant to replace.
Shapps should aim to put that right.
Force them instead on an unwilling public and he will reap the whirlwind.
Aside from that, the focus on growth in Rishi Sunak’s reshuffle was laudable.
But let’s see results, Rishi. Time is short.
TRANS lunacy has tanked the SNP’s ratings and humiliated its leader on live TV.
Nicola Sturgeon still cannot tell us if rapist Adam Graham, the self-identified “Isla Bryson”, is a man or woman.

It wants transitioning to be easier.
Its leader wants gender self-identification too, like the folly the SNP passed.
The “Bryson” case blew their woke “all trans women are women” theory to bits.
Even the Left can surely see that.
Except, for them, ideology trumps reality.

WHEN even the BBC’s chairman attacks the licence fee you would think it’s toast.
As Richard Sharp says, it hits the poorest hardest.

But will it ever change?
The Tories’ days may be numbered if polls are right.
And Labour will never defund its fanbase at Broadcasting House.
AS with the grooming gang scandals, obsessive political correctness is now risking lives, this time via Prevent.
A review of the anti-terror programme exposes exaggerated focus on right-wing extremists and too little on Islamists statistically far more likely to kill.

Its sole remit: To thwart the most attacks and save the most lives.
Not to worry about the racial balance in its mix of suspects.
