As we are their market we should be able to dictate that the goods we receive are 'low carbon' (or insert whatever other bullsh*t PC phrase you want). However, this approach won't be taken on board by the new environmentalists for two reasons:

1. Environmentalism is the new communism and therefore they don't believe in market forces

2. 'They' (greenies / commies / socialists) believe that we still have a debt to pay as ex-colonial agressors yarn etc etc and therefore we have to feel the pain and not the newly super-polluting 3rd world powers.

Bring back Maggie please.
