Brits to be given personal 'carbon allowance'

I have but one thing to say to you liberals who will allow yourselves to be guilted into such malarky: Enjoy the government control over every aspect of your lives; you want it, you'll get it! Liberal governments will take every ounce of control you cede to them.

Lord Smith of Finsbury believes that implementing individual carbon allowances for every person will be the most effective way of meeting the targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

It would involve people being issued with a unique number which they would hand over when purchasing products that contribute to their carbon footprint, such as fuel, airline tickets and electricity.
