Paying the price of relying on foes

from the British National Party

OPEC, the organisation of twelve oil producing countries agreed to raise production by 500,000 barrels a day in September, but analysts suggest this increase is insufficient to halt soaring prices. A handful of oil exporters which includes some volatile and unstable regimes such as Nigeria, Angola, Libya and Venezuela as well as Islamic regimes in Iran and Saudi Arabia can hold the rest of the world to ransom, including the UK, because of our over reliance and total dependence on the black stuff ... Until we have a government which takes the issue of energy security seriously and which has the ambition and vision to embark on a radical restructuring of our society to survive and prosper in a post-oil world, we will have to pay the price of being dependent on our enemies.
