Bombshell as senior ally of Boris Johnson loses confidence after 'tidal wave of anger'

Article Republished By Javier Troconis

The senior MP has asked to remain anonymous, but the revelation has come as Tory MPs have made it clear that it is “a lack of Conservative policies” which are driving the current rebellion and calls for a vote of confidence more than the illegal parties in Downing Street.

Like many colleagues the MP has calculated that their seat will be lost without a change of leader after several polls revealed the Conservatives falling far behind Labour.

In the weekly Techne UK/ Express tracker poll Labour was seven points ahead of the Conservatives, the most since the outbreak of the Ukraine war in February.

Even if he survives a vote of confidence, a backlash against “nanny state policies” means he will be facing a major rebellion on attempts to reform gambling in the next two weeks.

Already Express.co.uk understands that supporters of Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi, foreign affairs committee chairman Tom Tugendhat and former Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt have been actively reaching out for support from MPs and money from donors for a leadership bid.

Letters are submitted to Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 Committee which represents Tory MPs.

If 15 percent of the total number of Conservative MPs is reached, 53, then there is a vote of confidence.

If Mr Johnson wins he is safe for a year if he loses then there is a leadership contest.

So far 30 MPs have publicly declared they have handed in letters but many others have done it privately.

The news that a former ally who helped propel him to Downing Street in 2019 has abandoned him is a sign that Mr Johnson is now losing support from even those closest to him.

The only Brexit Spartan to publicly call for him to go is North West Leicestershire MP Andrew Bridgen.

As well as a rebellion on forcing bookmakers to take the financial details of people wanting to make a bet, Mr Johnson is also facing a major push to end the ban on new grammar schools opening to appease his MPs particularly in the Red Wall.

There is still rage over the National Insurance rise and the planned hike in Corporation Tax when Tory MPs are begging Mr Johnson and his Chancellor Rishi Sunak to free up economic growth with major tax cuts.

A briefing seen by Express.co.uk on the gambling reforms has underlined the depth of anger felt by many Conservative MPs.

While the news has been dominated by Partygate, many Conservative MPs are focused on “substance,” wanting to see less over-regulation by the government.

The briefing from a senior party source said: “The real test, quite simply, is whether Number 10 is going to continue focusing on ways to control people’s freedoms.”

The Gambling Act Review, due in June, looks set to curtail gamblers, with reports of affordability checks on punters, as well as limits on spend.

One member of the 2019 intake said: “We hear time and time again that this government is focused on being more conservative. The proof, as ever, is in the pudding.

“Gambling legislation, as a topic, appeals to a very small number of colleagues. However, it will take on a greater importance if it is used as a tool to give the government more power over people’s freedoms.’”

It was reported last year that checks will be carried out on punters, who may be forced to hand over to a government body, highly personal information on affordability, including pay checks.

The news infuriated campaigners, who argued the move would not only be an overreach by Downing Street, but subject to leaks and security threats from foreign actors.

One source said: “Let people decide how to live their lives, that is meant to be the conservative way. We cannot have a body, an arm of the state, armed with a database of people’s financial information. It will be hacked, it will be leaked, it will be compromised.”

Writing for Express.co.uk on the issue previously, Andrew Bridegen, called for “conservative thinking,” to prevail.

Mr Bridgen said: “If it is ok for the state to have my spending details to keep me ‘safe’ from gambling, why can’t every Government agency see the same information? Why not, if it’s keeping me ‘safe?’

“If we give in to this issue, we might as well except we live in a time where we have severely limited freedoms. Not something I think readers of the Express will agree with.

“What’s worse is, gambling is done by relatively few people. For the majority it is a harmless pastime, a good bit of fun, and enjoyable.

“Somewhere in the region of 98 percent of gamblers do so ‘safely,’ – so why are we giving up our liberty, yet again, so freely to the state?”

Is This Ocean Invention The Answer To Green Energy?

Article Republished By Javier Troconis

So the earth isn’t doing too well at the moment. 

Maybe you’ve noticed that California is always on fire, and that every summer seems to be the hottest on record, or the second hottest on record

And let’s not even get started on the ice caps.

Attempts to raise public awareness, divert investing away from fossil fuels and generally find ways to power the world that don’t add more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere have been pushed.

But it’s very much an open question as to whether society can reduce its carbon footprint in time to prevent catastrophic climate change. 

It’s very easy to fall into despair about the situation, and to just assume the worst is inevitable. 

So that’s why any time there’s a promising development in the field of green energy, it’s encouraging news for people who hope we can still turn this whole planet around in time. 

Now, a new development from Japan indicated that, just maybe, the dream of clean, renewable energy is still achievable.

IHI Corp’s Ocean Turbine May Be A Breakthrough 

The Japanese heavy machinery maker IHI Corp has been developing what is called Kairyu, Bloomberg reports,

The device is entirely green and consists of a “subsea turbine that harnesses the energy in deep ocean currents and converts it into a steady and reliable source of electricity.”

The 330-ton prototype is designed to be anchored to the sea floor at a depth of 30-50 meters (100-160 feet), where it will harness the power of deep sea turbines. 

IHI recently completed an almost four year demonstration study of the Kairyu, conducted in conjunction with Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization.  

The test proved that the turbine was able to generate the 100 kilowatts of stable power, and plans to have a commercial operation ready by next decade. 

It would be located in the Kuroshio Current in Japan’s eastern coast, and transmit the power via seabed cables.

NEDO estimates that the turbine could potentially generate up to 200 gigawatts — which would be close to 60% of Japan’s present generating capacity. 

Ocean Energy System, an intergovernmental collaboration established by the International Energy Agency, believes it may be possible to generate 300 gigawatts of ocean energy globally by 2050. 

IHI aims to generate power at 20 yen, or 0.16 cents, per kilowatt-hour from large-scale deployment

Location Is Everything

The key ingredients for a successful turbine seems to be a location that has a strong enough current to generate electricity.

It also must be a portion of the sea that is not overrun with ships, and able to be safely installed and maintained.

Japan is one of the world’s leaders in alternative energy, such as wind and solar power.

The challenge for Japan is that the country has not typically drilled for oil in the ocean before, and therefore is inexperienced offshore construction. 

This will make the construction of a turbine able to withstand the deep ocean current difficult. 

IHI said it conducted an environmental assessment before it launched the project. 

The company will use the test results to examine any impact on the marine environment and fishing industry.

Competition is Out There

Other companies are also looking to harness the ocean’s energy to create clean, green power.

They include SIMEC Atlantis Energy’s MeyGen, Aquantis, Orbital Marine Power and others in testing stages with international governments or science centers.

“The biggest issue for ocean current turbines is whether they could produce a device that would generate power economically out of currents that are not particularly strong,” said Angus McCrone, a former marine energy analyst, told the news service.

NEDO estimates that the turbine could potentially generate up to 200 gigawatts — which would be close to 60% of Japan’s present generating capacity. 

Ocean Energy System, an intergovernmental collaboration established by the International Energy Agency, believes it may be possible to generate 300 gigawatts of ocean energy globally by 2050. 

IHI aims to generate power at 20 yen, or 0.16 cents, per kilowatt-hour from large-scale deployment

Location Is Everything

The key ingredients for a successful turbine seems to be a location that has a strong enough current to generate electricity.

It also must be a portion of the sea that is not overrun with ships, and able to be safely installed and maintained.

Japan is one of the world’s leaders in alternative energy, such as wind and solar power.

The challenge for Japan is that the country has not typically drilled for oil in the ocean before, and therefore is inexperienced offshore construction. 

This will make the construction of a turbine able to withstand the deep ocean current difficult. 

IHI said it conducted an environmental assessment before it launched the project. 

The company will use the test results to examine any impact on the marine environment and fishing industry.

Competition is Out There

Other companies are also looking to harness the ocean’s energy to create clean, green power.

They include SIMEC Atlantis Energy’s MeyGen, Aquantis, Orbital Marine Power and others in testing stages with international governments or science centers.

“The biggest issue for ocean current turbines is whether they could produce a device that would generate power economically out of currents that are not particularly strong,” said Angus McCrone, a former marine energy analyst, told the news service.

Is This Ocean Invention The Answer To Green Energy?

So the earth isn’t doing too well at the moment. 

Maybe you’ve noticed that California is always on fire, and that every summer seems to be the hottest on record, or the second hottest on record

And let’s not even get started on the ice caps.

Attempts to raise public awareness, divert investing away from fossil fuels and generally find ways to power the world that don’t add more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere have been pushed.

But it’s very much an open question as to whether society can reduce its carbon footprint in time to prevent catastrophic climate change. 

It’s very easy to fall into despair about the situation, and to just assume the worst is inevitable. 

So that’s why any time there’s a promising development in the field of green energy, it’s encouraging news for people who hope we can still turn this whole planet around in time. 

Now, a new development from Japan indicated that, just maybe, the dream of clean, renewable energy is still achievable.

IHI Corp’s Ocean Turbine May Be A Breakthrough 

The Japanese heavy machinery maker IHI Corp has been developing what is called Kairyu, Bloomberg reports,

The device is entirely green and consists of a “subsea turbine that harnesses the energy in deep ocean currents and converts it into a steady and reliable source of electricity.”

The 330-ton prototype is designed to be anchored to the sea floor at a depth of 30-50 meters (100-160 feet), where it will harness the power of deep sea turbines. 

IHI recently completed an almost four year demonstration study of the Kairyu, conducted in conjunction with Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization.  

The test proved that the turbine was able to generate the 100 kilowatts of stable power, and plans to have a commercial operation ready by next decade. 

It would be located in the Kuroshio Current in Japan’s eastern coast, and transmit the power via seabed cables.
