The enemy within
Project Water Melon, the bid to guide western countries
into economic suicide by a process of rapid de-industrialisation, is on course
and proceeding at full steam ahead. The EU,
Of all the foolish decisions made by the Stuntman, however, nothing matches placing control of the most vital field of energy supply into the hands of that most extreme of greens, Chris Huhne. It gives new life to the old cliché – putting Dracula in charge of the blood bank.
One would hesitate to comment on the private life of an individual, which would ordinarily amount to an ad hominem attack, but an exception may be made in the case of a politician who gets elected by campaigning as a family man, then abandons his family in sordid circumstances as soon as the electoral coast is clear. Allegations of corrupt dealing in penalty points for a driving offence remain unproven, yet even without it he managed to lose his licence, showing that he has as much contempt for the law of the land as he has for the laws of physics.
The principles of a sound energy policy are simple and obvious. Yet they were blithely ignored in the Labour White paper of 2003. Eight years of lost time later they are now being totally overthrown by a despicable, ruthless propagandist who cares not a jot about the misery and chaos he will cause. People are going to die, but before that the pressure will be on industry to relocate to friendlier countries. The first to go will be what is left of the energy-hungry metallurgical businesses. That will be something else very expensive that we have to buy from abroad, further damaging our precarious trade balance. And what is it all for? The most important fact to bear in mind is this:
“Ah” say the greenies “but we have to set an example.” “Quite” say the new Asian economic giants as they snigger all the way to the bank. Europe will have the most expensive energy in the world and Britain will have the most expensive energy in Europe.
Meanwhile, in the

Another kind of stitch up
One of the more emetic features of the establishment media scene is the BBC in one of its auto-erotic veins: so the headline BBC praised for science coverage is hardly likely to produce any surprises or enlightenment. This time it is a review by an “independent” expert, who just happens to be a true believer who worships in the temple of global warming. Whenever a climate sceptic is allowed to appear on the BBC you can guarantee that it will be in the form of a stitch-up, where deft editing is used to make all infidels look foolish.
The Beeb will go to great lengths and enormous expenditure to achieve such ends, such as notoriously trailing Lord Monckton round the world in order to catch him at unflattering moments.
This, however, is their other kind of stitch up, a paean to the corporation conducted by one of its own groupies. And guess what – his conclusion is that the Beeb has no need to present both sides of a scientific debate, just the one subscribed to by the alleged “consensus”: as if it had ever done anything else. He could not resist adding another bit of typical BBC trickery, by grouping climate sceptics with nutters who campaign against such things as the MMR vaccine and GM foods. How far away from the actuality can they possibly get?

This is total the number of pounds the British Government intends to extract from each household in the land to uglify the country with those modern giant icons of religion - worse-than-useless wind turbines.
