CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN, WHY ON EARTH, THE ST VINCENT’S CAMPUS IS AN APPRORIATE LOCATION FOR THE NMH?
THE POOR RAIL CONNECTIONS, POOR BUS SERVICES, CONGESTED TRAFFIC ROUTES. LEAVING ASIDE, THE COMPLEXITIES AROUND OWNERSHIP, FINANCE, MORAL DISPUTES AND COMPLIANCE WITH LEGAL MEDICAL PROCEDURES ASIDE, HOW DOES THIS LOCATION SUIT IT’S FUTURE PATIENTS EASE OF ACCESS NEEDS?
How about instead of imposing, what might well be laudable policies, in of themselves; But, that without out proper preparation are a disaster for many of the general population.
Proper planning? How about instead of grants to the select few, who can afford or qualify for expensive loans, for PEV cars, retro fitting of homes, etc. Solar panels and so on. Why not instead give to every licenced driver, to every household, of whatever status; A set of specific, interest-free loans, spread over a ten-year period; To make it possible for all citizens to be able to make the right kind of changes to their lifestyles and homes that would achieve the desired outcomes?
This would of its self speed up the reductions so lovingly sought by the Greens and their allies. And reduce social friction, as more of the population well be directly involved. As the horse will be walking in front of the cart (for a change!) Lets face it, money is really a minor issue in this race for the planet.
As we watch the cruel and illegal war being conducted against the innocent people and the nation state of Ukraine, by Putin’s Russia and Belarus.
We see so many peoples and nations, showing, moving and heartening responses, in the form of donations and funds, as well as very personal involvement. Nations opening their doors to those escaping the onslaughts.
It’s so easy to lose sight of other aspects. No matter if Ukraine can reverse the invasion; The damage done to the society, it’s people. Its infrastructure and economy. Just to mention a few of them, is going to be as almost as dreadful.
On the other hand, a cynic might question what bountiful outcome has and will transpire for certain others, most especially President Joe Biden and United States of America.
Remember, Joe Biden speaking about the American economy, used the expression, “make America, America great again!” And also bought the domain name of “Keep America Great”
Now in a perverse manner, such is in the process, as of results of the war between Ukraine defending itself against Russia’s illegal invasion. Multiple European States rush to buy American Arms and seek the presence of American troops on their soil. While many others will consider doing, likewise, as they consider abandoning their traditional neutrality. As also those NATO partners, who Donald Trump said were not paying their fair share of the costs of the alliance, now increase their military budgets.
And now, private American companies will be selling Liquid Gas to Europe. And then of course there’s the opportunities awaiting in the rebuilding of Ukraine.
