Richard Murphy, inexorably trying to get British politics back on track. Unfortunately the Green New Deal is virtually unknown on the mainland. Germany is discovering that should it introduce a speed limit on the autobahn comparable to other EU nations, which would have a marked effect on CO² emissions, the Germans would probably elect a neo-fascist coalition of the ultra-right Alternative for Deutschland and Liberals. I have pondering on why the Green New Deal is making more progress in the USA then it has done here.
There is, of course, the AOC factor. This may explain a large part of it.
