Nigel Farage Calls for Net Zero Referendum NOW


"The Westminster Net Zero plans will force us to change the cars we drive, change the way we heat our homes, change how much we travel and what we eat."


Nigel Farage is launching a political movement to campaign for a referendum on Boris Johnson’s ridiculous Net Zero policy. The former Brexit party leader launched his campaign in an article published in the Mail on Sunday.


The campaign's slogan "vote for power, not poverty" sums up what the referendum choices would be. In his article, Mr Farage says “the political class in Westminster” has taken the country down a “ruinous path” by committing to the Net Zero target without any public debate being held.

"The Westminster Net Zero plans will force us to change the cars we drive, change the way we heat our homes, change how much we travel and what we eat."


We are demanding a referendum on the life-changing Net Zero plans forced upon us by Westminster politicians. We want the British people to have a say, both on our energy future and on Britain’s energy security."


Mr Farage, who has established Britain Means Business with Richard Tice, his co-founder at Leave Means Leave and the Brexit Party, describes the “Net Zero delusion” as “a scandal of epic proportions” which must be challenged.


He adds: “Without any debate, our energy bills have been loaded with green subsidies. Our businesses have been disadvantaged, yet our leaders seem happy to outsource industrial production just as long as they can say it reduces Britain’s CO2 emissions…"


“We will campaign for the 5% VAT on energy bills to be removed. Green subsidies are shovelled straight into the bank accounts of rich landowners, wealthy investors and foreign-owned conglomerates who own much of the renewable energy sector.”


Stop Press: The Sunday Times reports that some fracking wells are due to be concreted over in a couple of weeks, while in the Mail on Sunday the Conservative MP Lee Anderson says the fracking moratorium is “total lunacy“.


Stop Press 2: Taking a very different line, the Observer ran an editorial saying, “The crisis must not become a reason to drop our commitment to net zero target.” Are the ‘climate emergency’ zealots beginning to panic? Let's hope so.
