Talking Is UK gov actively trying to destroy aviation.?

Just a thought. Could the UK government be embarked on a policy to destroy the UK Airline sector with a view to decreasing UK carbon emissions by stealth ?

But what about the SLF using the Stanley Johnson loophole (this morning's UK press) to deal with matters arising from second homes or even acquiring them?

All the evidence suggests that. Looking at Grant Shapps's tweets, he consistently ignores pleas for UK aviation support / roadmap out of the restrictions. He regularly tweets, but considering aviation is a big part of his remit, it's quite apparent that his lack of attention to it, suggests that the OP's suggestion could well be true.

Saddestaviator ; The view is not to decrease carbon emission. The "stealth" bit is to makebelieve that the "agenda" is for our own good. It is all part of the 'World Economic Forum's' great reset. Distruction of the airline industry is just more a purposeful agenda to achieve total control of human freedoms.. And oh yes indeed. Silly little bird-flu stealth has proved how easy it is to force us into compliance where many, (increasing numbers, by the day ) can see exactly what is behind it all. More and more of the enlightened will join in my morning song............You aint seen nothin yet !..........

Sick: If you look at the shape of a pyramid, you will see that the "miniscule" numbers are right at the top.

Anyone have a link to a clear explanation of the new restrictions.
Wife & I are stuck in Spain (OK place to be stuck) until her fractures heal.
Then we need to get to UK to return car which needs MOT. Then back to Spain,
finish treatment. Navigating the UK Gov advice is like living in an episode
of Dungeons & Dragons. Any advice appreciated, John.

Good grief! When did PPRuNe turn into a home for the tinfoil hat brigade?

Aviation produces a tiny proportion of CO2 emissions.
Off to Jetblast we go.

I think you're spot on.
This will also significantly impact economics of many countries depending on tourism. As a result - more clients depending on IMF & WEF members goodwill.
On top - along with heavy censorship imposed by social and traditional media, we'll be cut out effectively from information from outher countries. Even now I can see how little people know about real situation even across EU countries.

Aviation is miniscule but a convenient place for politicians to put pressure on - much travel is discretionary. Coming to terms with making much less concrete, steel and plastics is politically more difficult. If we really are going to come to terms with zero carbon by 2040 it will look much more like 1960-1980 than recent years - one vehicle per household, more bikes albeit e-ones, , locally sourced food, 1980s level of air travel etc. The public hasn't grasped that yet and it will be hard to know how they react- some countries have bit of a head start - Scandinavia? The Netherlands.

C.A.A., Cease All Aviation. Has been their policy for decades. They can't really ban it out right, therefore they are on a crusade to regulate it out of existance.

The biggest load of cock and bull you will see someone type on the key board today. The CAA do what the Government tell them. Regulation keeps SLF safe from the cowboys. Regulation comes from upper legislation that comes from? You voted Tory? Well blame them.

Ironic isnt it?, Our superiors have just leased themselves another airbus just in case they have any shorter journeys not needing the recently acquired bigger airbus (all in it together)
So I think the USSR comment is far wide of the mark, let them eat cake comes more to mind

I am a LAE, why should I vote myself out of a job? Then again loads of LAEs voted themselves out of jobs in 2016. Ask those at Textron that have shut their UK MROs and will not be reopening them. I am very lucky I kept my job and being in UK regional and making good calls on relocation being the reason why. My reply Mr Jones still stands.

The simple answer is... Yes. As for the long and complex answer, there isnít one. Regarding the £7bn support package Shapps keeps banging on about; giving a few million in grants to airports and being a guarantor for Ďbailoutí loans to a couple of airlines isnít going to cut the mustard. Itís corporate sabotage and how itís legal is beyond me.

I know it hurts... but the virus means life as we knew it in 2019 isn't possible at the moment, so something has to give

The High Street has been largely closed for the last 3 months. Why should those who don't work in aviation treat flights to Palma as more important than a pub ?

This government preach "it'll happen tomorrow" but tomorrow never comes. Over 50% of UK population including most vulnerable now vacinated but its now illegal to go on holiday with a £5000 fine, yet holidays might happen but "extremely unlikely". We can't be dealing with so much uncertainty and tit for tat. Constant moving of goalposts....
